    Do not do it. I had I t done. You should look at porcine tissue instead as an option. You will have life long issues

    I haven't been through Dorian flap reconstruction but have had expanders that unfortunately have not been successful due to heavy scaring. I now have the option of the dorsia flap so would also be interested to hear from anyone that has had it done.

      Dear anonymous, I'm sorry for not getting back with you, I have had the dorsi lassimus flap and believe me it was easier than my mysectomy.I was back at work in two weeks, I have a heartless work place but I'm strong with God. You will do fine
