    Procedure or Surgery (Breast Reconstruction (Implant)): 4 months after Latissimas Dorsi Flap reconstruction, just yesterday, the tissue expander was exchanged for a silicone implant. Since that surgery was only an hour procedure, I was able to use IV general anesthesia which made for a faster, less nausea recovery. No future surgeries are planned. Long ago I decided the nipple/areola reconstruction was not in the picture...imagine Barbi doll chest...no need to ever wear a bra again!

    Procedure or Surgery (Latissimas Dorsi Flap Reconstruction): 4 months after breast reconstruction my radiated skin was not healed and beginning to tear on the very thin skin. This procedure involved removing the damaged skin and patching with a small island of skin from my back, as well as moving the latissimas dorsi muscle to my chest. My recovery was further complicated with severe fasciatis which caused much discomfort and pain. Myofascial release therapy is most helpful. My massage therapist says the every Latissimas Dorsi Flap Reconstruction patient should receive fascia release therapy.
