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)
