Latissimus flap breast reconstruction (also called a lat flap) is a muscle-transfer technique to rebuild the breast following a mastectomy. A surgeon moves a flap of skin along with the latissimus dorsi muscle and attached blood vessels from the upper back under the skin to the chest, usually inserting an implant under the flap to achieve the desired fullness. For women who don’t have enough donor tissue for TRAM, DIEP, or SIEA flap procedures (or don’t have access to surgeons who can perform this kind of microsurgery), latissimus flap reconstruction can look natural and offer a good result without significant complications.
