This patient has an outstanding result after DIEP breast reconstruction, but had concerns with persistent upper/outer quadrant hollowing.

Dr. Pannucci used a LICAP (lateral intercostal artery perforator) flap to improve the reconstructed breast’s contour, moving excess tissue from the axilla based on blood supply through the serratus anterior chest wall muscle.

She has a great improvement in upper/outer reconstructed breast contour at eight weeks from her last surgery.
