To rebuild your breast Elena can use tissue from your tummy (called a DIEP flap), tissue from your thighs (TMG flap), or tissue from your back (LD flap). Choosing the best area to use as a donor site for your breast is very important and it depends on a number of factors. Following a long conversation and examination in the clinic, Elena will give you her recommendations and time to consider the different surgical options. She usually then arrange a second consultation to discuss the preferred option and for you to ask any further questions before we begin planning your surgery.
Elena will talk you through all the necessary pre-surgery investigations, as well as the after-care required. She will also fully explain the risks associated with the procedure, only going ahead with the reconstruction operation once you are completely ready and happy with the choice you have made together.
