This 48 year-old patient presented for delayed reconstruction following right mastectomy for cancer. Initially a tissue expander was placed on the right to allow skin expansion over eight weeks. A second outpatient procedure was then performed to remove the expander and place a 400 cc HP gel implant on the right and a 240 cc gel implant on the left for symmetry. A nipple skate flap was performed 3 months later on the right side to complete the reconstruction. Photos taken 10 weeks following final surgery.
