DIEP Flap - Immagini

Vero paziente – risultati reali

Francesca, di anni 62, è stata sottoposta ad una ricostruzione con lembo DIEP del seno sinistro e del nuovo capezzolo, e contemporaneo adeguamento dell’altra mammella. La capacità di cicatrizzazione della signora ha fatto si che un anno dopo l’intervento le cicatrici sul seno e sull’addome siano quasi invisibili (da non confondere con il segno rosso del collant al punto vita).

Stefania, all’età di 43 anni, è stata sottoposta ad una ricostruzione con lembo DIEP del seno sinistro e del nuovo capezzolo, senza adeguamento dell’altra mammella. La foto 2 è stata scattata quattro anni dopo il primo intervento, periodo nel quale la signora ha acquisito qualche chilo e così sono naturalmente ingrassati entrambi i seni, anche quello ricostruito con il lembo DIEP.

Healing is a process that can be considered complete when, finally, you might recognize yourself into your own body, despite unavoidable changes...

In the last decades Plastic Surgery, has become part of the oncologic treatment protocol, as the importance of the reconstructive stage following resection of a diseased body part has been universally recognized. Concerning breast tumor, most advanced hospitals set up a “Breast Unit”, multidisciplinary functional unit composed by different specialists who cooperate to offer to the patient the best opportunity available from medical science, to contrast tumor disease and return to normal life.

There are several breast reconstructive procedures, even though expander and prosthesis is the most known. This web-site is dedicated to women undergoing mastectomy and willing to know all reconstructive opportunities. Main goal is to present “autologous” procedures using live tissues from the patient itself as a sort of “auto-transplant”. Advances in vascular microsurgery and in peri-operative patient care have allowed for outstanding steps forward to restore the female body image.

Once all aspects have been taken into proper consideration, a woman should be assisted during choice with broad information, evaluating pro and cons among any surgical procedure, so she can decide what is best for her.
