Abstract

Delayed breast reconstruction with implants can achieve satisfactory cosmetic outcomes and low morbidity. It is a surgical procedure that has minor risks, and in many cases can be performed as day surgery. Overall, this is the most used technique owing to its practicability. The aim of this chapter is to describe the indications, preoperative evaluation, operative techniques, and complications related to implant-based delayed breast reconstruction.
