In some patients, fat grafting or other similar additional procedures may be desired to achieve the optimal outcome.
For any aesthetic flat closure procedure, it is important to plan the scar placement. The length of the scar is determined by the extent of excess skin. A larger breast will require removal of more skin, potentially resulting in longer scars.
As with any breast reconstruction procedure, aesthetic flat closure requires shared decision-making between the patient and her surgeons. Patient expectations and goals can help determine the approach in guiding scar placement and any potential secondary procedures.
