Abstract

The latissimus dorsi added fat flap is an alternative method of natural tissue breast reconstruction. A significant volume of additional subcutaneous back fat is left attached to a traditional latissimus dorsi flap, avoiding the need for an additional implant. The surgical technique and results in 15 patients are discussed.
