Advanced Microsurgical Excellence

Microsurgery has seen numerous advances over the past few years, and at the Institute for Advanced Breast Reconstruction, we take pride in our commitment to utilizing the most cutting-edge surgical techniques available. This gives us the opportunity to offer autologous tissue flap breast reconstruction to patients who might have been otherwise informed that they’re not an ideal candidate for this surgical technique, thanks to our pioneering use of what we refer to as the customized “freestyle” perforator flap reconstruction procedure.

To make this procedure possible, we utilize a combination of high-end imaging with customizable surgery, giving you limitless options when it comes to all-natural, autologous breast reconstruction.

How the Procedure Works

Dr. Srinivasa will utilize MR and CT technology to obtain angiograms of the potential donor site. This will enable her to carefully and precisely map all of the blood vessels in the area, which is important for microsurgical tissue flap reconstruction. As an example, many patients find that they have stubborn fat in the hips, or “love handle” area. In this case, Dr. Srinivasa can obtain an MRI, carefully evaluating the blood vessels in the area and mapping them out with incredible accuracy. This enables her to create a surgical plan utilizing microsurgery, to transfer the area of extra fat and tissues to your chest for breast reconstruction.

The Reconstruction Results You Deserve

This operation utilizes all of the same principles of “perforator microsurgery” that other, more common flaps employ, but it requires a relatively unique skill set. Dr. Srinivasa’s impressively high level of experience gives her the ability to translate the principles of autologous tissue flap reconstruction to a customized “freestyle” perforator flap that is unique to each patient.

If you’re worried that autologous breast reconstruction might not be right for you, rest assured that Dr. Srinivasa and her team can “find the fat,” wherever it may be.
