Description

46 year-old mother of two; 5’10” tall, weighing 184 lbs. Immediately following her bilateral mastectomy, Dr. Armijo performed the first stage of breast reconstruction with the placement of tissue expanders. Once the patient was expanded to her desired size, Dr. Armijo performed a bilateral DIEP flap procedure, using the skin and fat from her tummy to reconstruct her breasts.  Following the DIEP flap procedure, patient desired more upper pole fullness to her breasts, so Dr. Armijo placed silicone gel implants in conjunction with fat grafting to complete her reconstruction. Patient opted not to proceed with nipple reconstruction.
