Thigh (TUG) Flap
For those of slimmer build with no tummy but smaller breasts then this may be a good secondary surgery option, producing quite a ‘perky’ breast reconstruction.
Wound healing of the inner thigh donor site can be an issue. Limited volume achievable. More complex microsurgery as vessels smaller.
4 – 6 hours of surgery
4 – 6 days in hospital
At least 6 week recovery to normal functioning, the thigh can take a while to settle.
