Breast Reconstruction Surgery
Biocompatible surgical operation for a more natural and female look
The Clinica San Francesco represents a medical centre of excellence also in breast surgery area. The breast reconstruction is carried out through the surgical procedure of adipose tissue autotransplantation, an internationally stabilized and effective procedure in clinic activity.
The graft of an autologous adipose tissue consists in sampling and immediate fat reimplantation from one anatomical site to other one of same patient, in order to redefine the morphological profile of specific areas.
In the mastoplasty ambit, the operation has 3 indications:
- Reconstruct the breast after tumorectomy, both in case of quadrantectomy (removal of mammary gland) and total mastectomy.
- Increase the volume in a normal breast
- Remodel breast to fix congenital or acquired deformities
For optimizing the outcome of operation and avoiding the transplanted tissue necrosis, the essential thing is that the fat positioned in new site is adequately exposed to blood circulation. In this respect the adipose tissue injections have to be in small quantities and diluted with time.
In additive mastoplasty, in a normal breast, one session can be enough, whereas in postmastectomy reconstruction more sessions are needed, depending on breast volume to reconstruct. The ones needed after a radiotherapy damage can be even many more.
The breast operations are always carried out in local anesthesia and sedation with postoperative course for few days.
