The breast reconstruction includes:

Free Tissue Transfer

Free tissue transfer breast reconstruction is a low complication surgery and hence considered the gold standard for breast reconstruction. As per surgery, the tissues and muscle flap are extracted from the abdomen via abdominoplasty, along with attached corpuscles, and then relocated and reattached in the breast to give it volume. Breast reconstruction plastic surgery is done with a specialized microsurgery procedure using a TRAM flap. The muscle and fat tissue flaps are extracted only after the health considerations of the patient.

Silicone Implants

Breast reconstruction, especially after mastectomy, is done with silicone implants. The implants are gel-like material filled in silicon case placed under the breast's skin to give them proper shape and volume. The breast surgeon may or may not use tissue transfer implants In breast reconstruction, depending on individual cases.

Body Fat Transfer

In addition to using breast implants, the breast surgeon may use the patient’s body fat in forming breasts. The fat is extracted through a technique called Autologous Fat Transfer (AFT). This is best when a patient undergoes a liposuction procedure to harvest the fat so that fat extracted is processed and injected in and around the breast tissue or implant for proper breast shape formation via breast surgeries. Fat transfer also adds natural volume and symmetry to breasts. The procedure may also be followed by nipple and areola reconstruction to complete breast reconstruction.

Reconstruction of the Nipple and Areola

These can be recreated using native skin on breasts or by tattooing or hyperpigmentation – pigmentation of the dark part.
