Breast Reconstruction in Odessa, TX

Breast reconstruction surgery can be performed to restore them to an attractive appearance in size and shape after a lumpectomy or mastectomy. It is also an option to repair a breast damaged by trauma or a birth defect. Advanced options in breast reconstruction surgery make it possible for breast cancer patients to feel fully healed and attain natural-looking breasts after they have been removed. This surgery can include several procedures and different stages that may be done at the beginning of your breast cancer treatment or delayed until the treatment is complete. With a compassionate approach, our plastic surgery team can create a unique treatment plan for Midland-Odessa, TX patients to help restore their physical appearance and confidence. Medical spa treatments and surgical consultations at Refine Plastic Surgery are held at our Odessa, TX location. All surgeries are performed at Choice Care Surgery Center in Midland, TX, an advanced, fully accredited, and state-of-the-art outpatient ambulatory surgical center.

There are many techniques available for breast reconstruction and many factors our team looks into to determine the method that will produce your best results. Some of these factors include cancer diagnosis, reconstruction timing, whether you will use natural tissue or implants, and whether nipple-sparing or nipple reconstruction is a part of the treatment plan. To rebuild the breast, you must have enough tissue to fully cover the breast mound. Flap techniques accomplish this by using your own skin, muscle, and fat to build and cover the mound. The most common flap techniques are:

  • TRAM flap: This technique takes skin, fat, and muscle from your stomach to create the breast. The tissue used to create the new breast can be detached from the stomach or it may stay attached to the donor location, keeping the original blood supply.
  • DIEP flap: Like a TRAM flap, the DIEP flap takes fat, skin, and blood vessels from the lower abdominal area; however, it does not take the muscle. The DIEP (deep inferior epigastric perforator) flap moves fat and skin from the belly to form the breast mound, then uses microsurgery to reattach the blood vessels to the chest wall.
  • Latissimus dorsi flap: This method uses muscle, fat, and skin from your back. During this procedure, tissue is taken from the back to the mastectomy site via a surgically created path so it stays attached to the donor location, which leaves the original blood supply intact.
  • PAP flap: Another flap alternative is the profunda artery perforator (PAP). This technique takes skin, fat, and muscle tissue from your inner thigh to build your breast(s).
  • LTP flap: While the TRAM flap tends to be one of the most common methods used for breast reconstruction, sometimes there isn't enough muscle, skin, and fat that can be taken from the abdominal area. In these situations, the LTP flap technique may be used, which uses tissue from the lateral thigh area.
  • Composite flap: Also called a composite stacked flap, this method takes flaps from several sections of your body for breast reconstruction.

Leigh Ann at Refine Plastic Surgery is amazing! I received a few lymphatic massages from her during my surgery recovery! She was warm and welcoming and very accommodating when a scheduling error occurred (no fault of hers) and made room for me to be seen that day!
