Flap Surgery From Your Abdomen

Tissue may be taken from the abdomen and tunneled to the breast or surgically transplanted to form a new breast mound.

After surgery, the breast mound, nipple, and areola are restored, if desired.

After surgery, the breast mound is restored. Scars are permanent but can fade over time. A nipple and areola can be reconstructed at a later date.
