Breast Reconstruction Revision for this 52 year old woman who failed implant-base reconstruction. She had a history of radiation therapy and painful capsular contractures. Her implants had been removed. She came to me seeking breast reconstruction with her own tissue. Bilateral DIEP Flaps for breast reconstruction and nipple areola reconstruction were performed. The radiation damaged skin needed to be removed. She is pleased that she was able to complete breast reconstruction.
