The Inferior Gluteal Flap – Breast Reconstruction – Anatomic Dissection on a Cadaver


The breast has been the expression of beauty and fertility since ancient times. The aesthetic reconstruction of the breast is and has been a challenge for plastic surgeons. Microsurgical techniques of dissection and free transfer are commonly used.
During the dissection of one fresh, female cadaver, age 67, a free inferior gluteal flap was taken from gluteal region, using loupe magnification. The dissection preparations were photographed with a high definition camera.
