Traditional breast reconstruction procedures rely on foreign materials, such as implants, leading to a potentially high risk of infections, allergic reactions, and other complications. Breast flap surgery allows us to augment and reconstruct your breast using natural tissues drawn from another part of your body, ensuring completely natural and safe results.
Reconstruct your breasts with natural tissues derived from your body
No material is as safe and effective as natural tissues from your body. Dr. Khan avoids implant-based reconstruction because of the risk of breast implant illness, a condition where the use of implants leads to numerous systemic health problems and complications. Instead, he advocates using tissues drawn from the patient’s own body to create natural-looking and feeling breasts. He personalizes the procedure to ensure optimal safety and aesthetic results for the breasts and donor site.
What is breast flap surgery?
Breast flap surgery, also known as autologous flap reconstruction, is a surgical procedure that uses tissues drawn from the patient’s own body, such as the skin, soft tissues, and fat cells, to enhance the breast mound. The surgeon harvests tissues from the donor site, such as the buttocks, back, thighs, or abdomen, and transfers them to the breasts to make them look fuller and more natural. The procedure is personalized according to your desired goals and the location of the donor site.
