This 69 year-old woman had previously undergone a left mastectomy to treat cancer in that breast. She decided to have her right breast removed to prevent her from getting cancer in that breast. At the time her right breast was removed, both breasts were reconstructed with tissue expanders. The expanders were later replaced with 400 cc high profile round silicone gel breast implants. Her nipples were reconstructed using only tattoos.
