About TDAP & ICAP Breast Reconstruction Procedure
The TDAP procedure for breast reconstruction is a very useful and powerful option for patients either requiring partial breast reconstruction, augmentation of a breast reconstruction, or for those who have very small breasts.
This operation uses extra skin and fat from the side of the chest either under the arm or more towards the back. If there’s extra tissue there, this extra skin and fat can be lifted up still attached to its blood supply, and swung over into the chest to make a new breast.
Typically there’s not as much tissue at this site as there is in the abdomen, buttock or thigh. Therefore these operations are usually used for smaller breasts, or to correct defects and impressed caused by a lumpectomy with radiation or from implant failure.
