Abstract

Summary:

Prepectoral breast reconstruction has been reemerging as a technique for postmastectomy implant-based reconstruction. Due to its advantage in eliminating animation deformity, shortening length of hospital stay and decreasing the amount of narcotics used for pain control, the technique has been embraced by patients and surgeons alike. The authors examined the breast surgeon’s perspective regarding prepectoral reconstruction taking into consideration oncologic criteria, breast cancer recurrence, surgical technique, and the team approach to patient care.
