Why Get Mastectomy that's Autologous?
The main alternative to implant-based reconstruction is using your own tissue to reconstruct the breast. Autologous reconstruction (sometimes called autogenous reconstruction) uses tissue -- skin, fat, and sometimes muscle -- from another place on your body to form a breast shape. The tissue (called a "flap") usually comes from the belly, the back, the inner thighs, or the buttocks to create the reconstructed breast. The most common donor site for this tissue is the abdomen, but there are several other choices. You can learn more about our services by visiting our cosmetic procedures page.
