Hybrid breast reconstruction-the best of both worlds. Gland surgery Kanchwala, S., Momeni, A. 2019; 8 (1): 82-89


The two common reconstructive modalities following mastectomy include implant-based reconstruction and autologous reconstruction. While the majority of patients can be successfully treated with either one of these approaches, a subset of patients will benefit from a third reconstructive approach which combines implant-based and autologous reconstruction, i.e., hybrid reconstruction. Here, the authors discuss indications, surgical technique, results and additional reconstructive considerations of combining free abdominal tissue transfer with simultaneous implant placement. A reconstructive algorithm is presented.
