Endoscopic Latissmus Dorsi Flap
An updated version of the standard Latissimus Dorsi Flap that uses a new harvesting technique, Endoscopic Latissimus Dorsi Flap can offer a significant reduction of incision size, postoperative pain and scarring. This procedure may require more time than the standard Latissimus Dorsi Flap and is more expensive. The standard Latissimus Dorsi Flap procedure involves harvesting tissue from the latissimus muscle on the patient’s back, which is then used to reconstruct a new breast mound. This procedure is suitable for patients who may have had radiation therapy, but are not candidates for tissues expansions or permanent implants alone.
A full consultation is required to determine if Endoscopic Latissimus Dorsi Flap surgery is right for you.
