This patient was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 1987. She then had breast reconstruction in 1988. She had an implant placed and over the years it became firm and uncomfortable. She met with Dr. Lapuerta and he recommended a DIEP procedure to reconstruct the breast using her own abdominal tissue. The advantage of this procedure is that no implants are involved and the breast is all natural tissue. She is very happy with her results and she feels great!
