42 year old caucasian mother of two presented with newly diagnosed right breast cancer. Patient palpated a lump in the right breast and then sought the attention of her OB/GYN. Workup which consisted of a biopsy of the right breast mass returned back infiltrating ductal carcinoma. Patient elected to have a right sided mastectomy with immediate DIEP flap reconstruction of the right breast. A negative intraoperative lymph node came back positive after the final pathology resulting in the need for additional radiation therapy to the right reconstructed breast.
Patient is seen below after successful right mastectomy with immediate DIEP flap reconstruction and radiation to her right breast.
After healing up for 6 months after radiation therapy, the patient underwent nipple reconstruction with modified CV flaps.
The 3D tattoo is done in the office and does not require any anesthesia. Areola and nipple pigmentation by 3D tattoo are the finishing touches that bring the breast reconstruction to life. This patient is seen 6 months out after the completion of her 3D tattoo with a stable reconstruction, symmetrical breast mounds and an acceptable result.
