Lumpectomy Reconstruction

Dr. Rad employs the TDAP Flap for women who need healthy tissue added to their breasts in order to heal severe radiation damage and/or improve breast symmetry. This 52 year old woman had been a cancer survivor for many years following lumpectomy and radiation therapy. She developed a suspicious spot on mammogram that required a biopsy. Due to severe radiation she developed an open, raw and very painful ulcer that would not heal after 6 months. Radiation had also caused her entire breast to shrink resulting in severe asymmetry and her clothes fit poorly. When she first met Dr. Rad, she wanted the least invasive solution to these problems, and the TDAP Flap was the perfect solution.
