Is a Lat Flap with implant a good way to go after failed sgap procedure?

Yes, lat flaps are great!
A "lat dorsi " flap can add skin and volume to a breast reconstruction. This helps shape and provides extra soft tissue. The soft tissue covers an implant better and minimizes hardness. Bilateral lat flaps can be done by an experienced plastic surgeon to minimize recovery time. There are pros and cons to immediate use of implants or expanders. Look at some of our photos to see results. I hope this helps.
