Implant Based Reconstruction

The following images are from actual patients treated by Dr. Elisabeth Potter who have undergone Implant Based Breast Reconstruction.

This patient, a 50 year old female with previous cosmetic breast implants, was diagnosed with right breast cancer as well as a genetic susceptibility to breast cancer. She underwent bilateral mastectomies – nipple-sparing on the left breast but not on the right – with tissue expander placement. Her expanders were then exchanged for implants.


Diagnosed with left breast cancer, this 38 year old patient underwent bilateral non-nipple sparing mastectomies and tissue expander placement. Her tissue expanders were later exchanged for silicone implants. She completed her reconstruction with 3-D nipple tattoos.


This patient, diagnosed with left breast invasive ductal carcinoma at age 42, underwent bilateral nipple-sparing mastectomies with tissue expander placement. She later underwent bilateral PAP (profunda artery perforator) flap reconstruction. She opted for a revision surgery which included placement of implants behind PAP flaps for increased breast volume.
