Latissimus dorsi flap + Implant

This is when a muscle from the back (latissimus dorsi), with connected skin, fat, and blood vessels, is moved from the back to the chest to form a new breast or to shape the pocket for a breast implant. This muscle tissue and blood vessels are usually passed through a tunnel under the skin to the chest. The transferred tissue remains attached to its original blood supply. This makes the procedure less complicated than other flap procedures. This flap can be combined with an implant.
