Autologous Reconstruction

What Is Autologous Reconstruction?

It is reconstruction that uses skin and fat from your own body. This tends to look and feel more natural than reconstruction with implants alone. These procedures are more complex, invasive, and require a longer hospital stay to recover. They also leave scars in the area of the body where the tissue is taken (abdomen or back); however, this type of reconstruction also lasts longer than implants that typically require replacement in 10-20 years.
