While breast reconstruction following mastectomy has many proven benefits, poor breast sensation is commonly reported due to the necessary disruption of sensory nerves during surgery. Hao Huang @_danielhuang__ and his co-authors from the NewYork-Presbyterian Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery @columbiacornellplasticsurgery conducted preoperative and postoperative neurosensory testing in patients who are undergoing mastectomy and immediate reconstruction with either DIEP flap or tissue expander. They found that women with autologous flap experience a faster and more predictable sensory recovery, with sensation returning to preoperative levels in some areas of the breast by 18 months postoperatively. Delineating the Return in Breast Sensation: A Comparison Between Autologous and Device-Based Reconstruction Hao Huang, BS @_danielhuang__; Angela Ellison, PA-C; David M.
