Current implants and breast reconstruction
Breast reconstruction after augmentation
Breast augmentation is not a hindrance to reconstruction. The subpectoral pockets and capsule are already created making for easier placement of implants. Depending on the reconstruction method and desired outcome you may not need an alloderm sling. Difficult to advise on the volume of expansion without photos. If you are undergoing a DIEP flap reconstruction with implants, this can be done as a single stage without the need for expanders. Best, Dr. Yegiyants
