In addition to serving women through breast enhancement procedures, Dr. Marshall also offers gynecomastia treatment, or male breast reduction aimed to help men improve their appearance and self-image.
A latissimus flap plastic surgery is a reconstructive surgical procedure that is used to rebuild or augment soft tissue in the body, typically in the breast or upper body area. The procedure involves transferring a section of muscle and skin, known as the latissimus dorsi muscle, from the patient’s back to the front of the body.
The latissimus flap procedure is commonly used in breast reconstruction surgery following a mastectomy or lumpectomy. It can also be used to reconstruct other areas of the body, such as the upper arms or back, or to repair defects caused by trauma or injury.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with latissimus flap surgery, including bleeding, infection, scarring, and changes in sensation. It’s important for patients to carefully consider the risks and benefits of the procedure and to choose an experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon to perform the surgery.
