Autologous Breast Reconstruction

When breast tissue is lost due to surgical removal or trauma, breast reconstruction options may be explored to restore the breast shape. For patients that do not want breast implants for a wide variety of reasons, autologous breast reconstruction may be a better choice. Dr. Peter Koltz at pēkomd is a highly skilled breast plastic surgeon who offers complex autologous breast reconstruction with flap surgery at our surgery center in Toledo, OH.

Breast reconstruction after breast cancer or other conditions that remove tissue is a complex procedure. The goal is to reshape the breast for a natural appearance. Autologous breast reconstruction involves various surgical methods to relocate tissue from another area of the body to recreate the breast shape. The most common method is flap surgery where muscle, fat and tissue from the abdominal area are released and moved into the chest area to create new breasts.

Breast Reconstruction Flap Surgery

Autologous breast reconstruction with flap surgery can provide a natural-appearing new breast using your own tissue. The procedure is complicated – the blood vessels supplying the muscles and fatty tissues must be altered to ensure the blood supply continues once the transfer is completed. Moving the flap of muscle and fat to the breasts and ensuring the health of the tissue is just one part of the surgery. The second aspect is cosmetic, creating a natural shape and contour to the new breast.

Dr. Koltz is an ABPS board-certified plastic surgeon who underwent double fellowship training. His experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery have made him the premiere plastic surgeon in the greater Toledo, Perrysburg and Bowling Green area. If you have lost one or both of your breasts to cancer or another conditions, Dr. Koltz can help you explore the best options in breast reconstruction, including flap surgery.
