Leading Breast Reconstruction Center Hits Milestone, Completing 7,000th Microsurgical Flap Procedure
Date:8/3/2017

Leading breast reconstruction center--PRMA Plastic Surgery--announces they have successfully completed their 7,000th microsurgical free flap breast reconstruction surgery.

This makes PRMA is one of very few centers worldwide performing such a high volume of complex breast reconstruction procedures.

Microsurgical breast reconstruction using tissue flaps represents the state of the art in reconstruction breast surgery after mastectomy. The tissue removed by a mastectomy is replaced with the patient’s own living tissue from another area of the body (lower abdomen, thigh, buttock, etc.) to reconstruct a natural, warm, soft breast. With procedures like the DIEP or SIEA flap, sensory nerve reconstruction can also be performed to restore breast feeling after mastectomy.

“We are dedicated to rebuilding lives after breast cancer,” says Dr. Gary Arishita. “We are truly honored to provide today’s advanced breast reconstruction techniques on such a large scale.”

Founded in 1994, PRMA has grown to include a team of seven microsurgeons with two locations and has performed over 8,500 total breast reconstruction procedures for women across the globe.

“We are proud to reach this milestone and thankful to use our skills to impact lives in a positive way every day,” shares Dr. Peter Ledoux.
