Implants vs. Flaps
This is a complex question that is determined by the patient's health, situation, and desires. Some patients may not be a candidate for natural tissue reconstruction with a flap because of previous surgeries or other health related contraindications. Some women prefer natural tissue reconstruction because it is a surgery that lasts a lifetime. Others prefer implants because it is an easier surgery, but implants do not last forever so likely surgery will be required again in the future. Dr. Haddock can present the pro and cons of each route in consultation.
