Abstract

Reconstructive surgery following mastectomy has had an increased acceptability with improved techniques and pros-theses. Plastic reconstructive procedures following prophylactic mastectomy were performed in 104 patients and following mastectomy for cancer in 88 patients. Capsular contractions have not occurred with the use of a subpectoral pocket and detection of recurrent cancer is not hampered by the materials now used.
