  • Free TRAM Flap
  • Gluteus Free Flap
  • Latissimus Flap
  • Lateral Thigh Flap
  • Lumpectomy

  • Second Stage Surgery (Nipple and Areola)
  • Timing of Surgery
  • Skin Sparing Mastectomy
  • Radical Mastectomy
  • Limits and Risks of Treatment
  • Follow-up
  • Life After Cancer Treatment
  • Menu-driven help mode is available for instruction, as is instruction from your guide, Jo-Ann, a patient who has undergone cancer treatment and breast reconstruction.

    A glossary is provided for review of key terms. Each item is accompanied by an illustration.
    Further review of the various topics is possible through use of the "Art Gallery" and "Movie Theater." These provide narrated descriptions of patient photos, descriptions of pertinent anatomy, and schematic and patient morph movies.
    CSoft's "Breast Restoration" is available on CD-ROM in Power Macintosh and Windows 95/98/NT forms. Individuals may order the software from Celestial Software.
