This patient had reconstruction of the breast with a large groin flap after a modified mastectomy. One of the advantages of this type of breast reconstruction is that no additional scars are created on the posterior chest; expendable tissue on the lower abdomen is used. (From Gant, T., Serafin. D., and Buncke, H.J.: Free flap reconstruction of the breast. In Post-Mastectomy Reconstruction. Edited by T. Gant and L.O. Vasconez. Baltimore, Williams and Wilkins, 1981.)
