I Had No Idea What Flap Procedures Were Until Now. This Video Is Such A Great Reconstruction Resource!C. Dixon
Facing a breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming — and picturing what your body will look like after surgery can be daunting. It’s important to remember that you have options!
This fantastic 3D animation walks you through the possibilities for breast reconstruction, focusing on implant operations both with and without a flap procedure, as well as what types of flap procedures there are: abdominal, gluteal, back, and more. (As always, reconstruction options evolve as new methods are fine-tuned, so be sure to ask your doctor what options would be best for you.)
Knowing what to expect from your surgery can you make you feel more confident and comfortable. Relax, take a deep breath, and explore your choices in this video!
