Which Breast Reconstruction Method is Right For Me?

As a woman who is considering breast reconstruction, you may want to know the specific options available to you. The two main techniques are implant-based or tissue flap-based. Implant-based uses a saline or silicone breast implant to restore breasts. The flap-based method uses a section of your own tissue – we prefer a flap of fat and skin from your abdominal area that doesn't use any muscle from the donor site – to reconstruct the breasts. While the former method creates natural-looking, beautiful results, the latter is preferred by some women because it avoids artificial implants altogether.
