Overview and Indications

Breast reconstruction is a surgery that is performed to reshape the breast following a mastectomy for breast cancer patients. At Keck Medicine of USC, our latest advances include onco-plastic surgery, which combines cancer surgery with plastic and reconstructive surgery for optimal clinical and cosmetic results.

Types of breast reconstruction include:

  • Transverserectus abdominous myocutaneous flap (TRAM)
  • Latissimus muscle flap
  • Deep inferior epigastric artery perforator flap (DIEP or DIEAP)
  • Gluteal flap
  • Transverse upper gracilis flap (TUG)
