Abstract

The options for breast reconstruction following mastectomy have greatly expanded. Current techniques include pedicle flaps and free tissue transfers. With the advent of perforator flaps, additional options have become available that have the advantage of reduced donor site morbidity. The purpose of this manuscript is to review the most common methods of breast reconstruction using autologous tissues.
