Al-Kalla T, Komorowska-Timek E - Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open (2014)

Bottom Line: As with to female patients, mastectomy in men creates a substantial emotional burden.However, due to the unique anatomy of the male breast, standard reconstructive strategies using anatomic or prosthetic modalities are not entirely applicable.We describe a case of a 68-year-old male patient who underwent successful unilateral breast reconstruction solely with fat grafting technique.

ABSTRACT

Summary: Cancer of a male breast represents less than 1% of all breast cancer. As with to female patients, mastectomy in men creates a substantial emotional burden. Breast reconstruction may improve the patient's psychological well-being, compliance with adjuvant treatments, and overall outcome. However, due to the unique anatomy of the male breast, standard reconstructive strategies using anatomic or prosthetic modalities are not entirely applicable. We describe a case of a 68-year-old male patient who underwent successful unilateral breast reconstruction solely with fat grafting technique.

Figure 3: The final result 6 months after the last fat grafting session.

Mentions: The patient’s recovery after each procedure was uneventful. The reconstructed breast mound remained entirely soft without palpable nodules suggestive of fat necrosis. The reconstructed nipple, however, developed partial necrosis but did not require revision. At 6-month follow-up, the patient was very satisfied with his reconstructed breast, which became his preferred side (Fig. 3).
