LATISSIMUS DORSI FLAP
A latissimus dorsi flap uses muscle, fat and skin from the back tunneled to the mastectomy site and remains attached to its donor site, leaving blood supply intact. Occasionally, the flap can reconstruct a complete breast mound, but often provides the muscle and tissue necessary to cover and support a breast implant. This procedure is often used to add or replace skin to a mastectomy site that has been radiated. Learn more about latissimus dorsi flap.
