Breast malformations are common and can include various forms, both of the nipple and the breast shape. Learn more about the correction of uneven breast shape and breast malformations.
Reconstructive breast surgery
Reconstructive breast surgery aims to restore the breast, e.g. after breast cancer treatment. It can be done with the patient's own tissue (own fat treatment, microsurgical techniques) or with implants. The techniques include:
- Expander implant for mastectomy
- Breast reconstruction with tissue from the abdomen (DIEP flaps)
- Breast reconstruction with tissue from the thigh (TMG flap)
- Breast reconstruction with tissue from the buttocks (S-GAP flap)
- Breast reconstruction with back muscle (latissimus dorsi flap plasty)
- Breast reconstruction with autologous fat tissue transfer (lipofilling)
Each technique must be discussed individually with the patient.
The male breast (= gynecomastia) is very common. It can be unilateral, but also affect both breasts. Many men unfortunately suffer from unilateral or mostly bilateral enlargement of the male breast.
A distinction is made between a so-called real gynecomastia with increased male mammary gland tissue, and the so-called pseudogynecomastia, in which fatty tissue is stored for the most part. Mixed forms are frequent.
Patients often feel reduced in their self-confidence, the excess glandular tissue can also be painful.
