Bilateral Immediate Breast Reconstruction with Tissue Expanders Following Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy

This 28 year-old female was diagnosed with left-sided breast cancer. Because of her young age and increased lifetime risk, she opted for bilateral mastectomies. The removal of her breast was performed through small incisions on the side of the breasts. The nipple tissue was preserved and a two-stage breast reconstruction was performed with MENTOR® ARTOURA™ Breast Tissue Expanders. Several months later, the expanders were replaced with the most advanced, new “gummy-bear” MemoryShape™ silicone implants. Fat transfer to the upper portion of the breast was also performed to create a very natural contour. Postoperative result at 6 months shows excellent symmetry and shape, with a patient’s increase in breast volume as she requested.
