Doctor's Comments

This is a very pleasant 56 year old female who was diagnosed with a right infiltrating ductal carcinoma. She underwent right mastectomy and sentinel node biopsy. She also elected to have a left prophylactic mastectomy using a skin sparing approach. Her reconstruction was performed with bilateral immediate first stage reconstruction with tissue expanders and Alloderm. Her second stage involved removal of her tissue expanders and placement of gel implants. She underwent pocket modification at her second stage to control her infra-mammary fold and obtain better symmetry. She has not yet had right nipple reconstruction.
