For patients who want to sculpt their bodies during their surgeries in Phoenix DIEP Breast Reconstruction uses the skin from a tummy tuck to reconstruct the breasts.DIEP Flap
PAP reconstruction surgery uses donor tissue from the upper thighs in order to build the reconstructed breasts. This is an excellent choice for patients who may not have enough abdominal tissue to use as a donor site. LTP flap surgeries are similar to PAP flaps, but take their donor tissue from the outer thigh (“saddlebags”) as opposed to the upper thigh.PAP Flap
Composite stacked flap surgery (also called combined autologous tissue breast reconstruction) is a type of autologous tissue reconstruction that uses multiple flaps to achieve the desired effect. This can include donor tissue from the abdomen, thigh, or hip areas. Our surgeons can also perform tummy tucks and thigh lifts as part of this procedure for an effect that achieves a full body restoration.Composite Stacked Flap
Second-stage reconstruction includes procedures performed in two stages using tissue expanders and implants.Second Stage
Women who carry a gene that predisposes them to breast cancer may decide on mastectomy as a prophylactic (or preventative) measure. Hereditary breast reconstruction can restore the shape and size of the breasts following tissue removal.Hereditary Breast
Nipple reconstruction refers to surgical procedures that use tissue from the area where the new nipple will be located to recreate the appearance of the nipple and areola. While this new nipple will not have the same function as the nipple did before mastectomy, it will attempt to match the size, shape, color, and texture of the original, which can have a profound effect on patient wellbeing.Nipple Reconstruction
Sometimes our patients aren’t eligible for flap reconstruction. Phoenix breast implant reconstruction solves the volume issue by reconstructing the breast and adding an implant (silicone or saline) during the same procedure.Implant Reconstruction
Procedures that remove, exchange, or correct past breast surgeries are known as corrective breast revision. Explant surgeries remove implants and restore the breast using other methods decided on by the patient and doctor.Explant Surgery

While breast augmentation can improve the look of the breasts in many ways, it cannot provide the same type of improvement to position as a breast lift. This procedure takes the breasts and repositions them higher on the body, eliminating the causes of sagging and ptosis (the condition where the nipples point downwards instead of out). Our expert breast lift surgeons tailor each breast lift to the patient’s needs to minimize scarring and avoid unnecessary incisions.Breast Lift
