Reconstructions of breast is needed after its loss by cancer extripation. It could be for one side loss or for both the sides. The methods of reconstruction uses bodys own tissue with or without the use of breast implants. using tissue from the surroundings are called local flaps , Using tissue from the same region are called regional flaps such as muscle from the back (Lattimus Dorsi Myocutaneous flap) or form Tummy tuck area rectus abdominus myocuatneous flap .These muscles are moved in the breast region with their blood supply intact .When tissue are harvested in such a manner that the blood supply is divided and then re-eastablished by microvasuclar anatomosis then the method is called free tissue tranfer.
|Some times in individuals with high risk of cancer because of strong cancer history the breast tissue is excised as a prophylaxis against cancer and in this situation immediate breast reconstruction is mandatory. Once the breast tissue is excised with mininmal incision the axilla is cleared of all the lymph glands the ductal system inside the neeple is to be excised as well and reconstruction mainly involves using silicon gel breast implants.|
|Professor Dr. Ashok Govila invented a new technique of reconstruction called extracorporeal tissue transfer.
Some pages of his book on this subject titled ALTERNATIVE FREEE FLAPS can be seen on the home page of this site. In this method an island flap is harvested on a long vascular pedicle and the vessels remain undivided since there is a risk of anastomosis getting blocked with blood clot. The flap is moved to the site of reconstruction by brings the donor and the recipient part closer for 10 days. When the transferred tissue heals that normally takes 10 days then the vessels are divided and the parts of body freed. Now the transferred tissue is living on the blood supply that it has re-established herself from the recipient bed and this will improve in next 6 months.Once the breast of desired size is created the nipple areola complex is reconstructed 6 months to one year later .
There are endless methods to do this .All methods use ones own tissue .Sometimes it can be shared from the other normal intact side other times it can be used from the labia minora (ineer lip of vagina) and the groin region.
Some examples of all these are shown on this page.
Professor Ashok performs all these methods and cost of surgery depends upon the stages of surgery required,
duration of each surgery, and duration of hospitalization.
