This 40 year-old female presented with left breast lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS). She underwent bilateral skin-sparing mastectomy and simultaneous deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap reconstruction. The patient had asymmetry and ptosis (drooping) of both breasts that was corrected with a mastopexy (breast lift) of the reconstructed breasts. Nipple reconstruction was performed, however, the patient is yet to undergo micropigmentation (3D nipple and areola tattooing).
