Before and After

Back flap procedure:

Post-surgery and recovery

You may observe a partial loss of strength or function that makes it hard to lift things and twist.

The skin on the back usually has a slightly different colour and texture than breast skin, however, latissimus dorsi flap breast reconstruction can still look natural.

After the surgery, the treated areas will probably be bruised
and swollen for a few weeks.

It can take up to 3-6 months for a Lipofilling surgery to fully take effect, as some of the injected fat may be reabsorbed by the body during the first few weeks after the procedure.

Some complications include - fever or feeling sick if these symptoms are not addressed immediately; in a few instances, the tissue moved from the back to the breast area won't get enough circulation and some of the tissue might die
