Working at The Royal Marsden Hospital, Mr Khan offers a comprehensive breast reconstruction service and works within an oncoplastic team comprising breast surgeons and oncologists. The reconstructive journey is highly individualised and commonly requires more than one procedure to achieve the optimal aesthetic outcome for you.
He routinely performs autologous breast reconstruction using the transfer of abdominal tissues (DIEP flap). Where feasible, Mr Khan performs sensory nerve reconstruction to improve the chances of sensory return within the reconstructed breast. In those women in whom a DIEP flap is not the preferred option, Mr Khan is also experienced in breast reconstruction using tissues from other donor sites, such as the thigh and back and implant-based reconstruction. These procedures are often combined with fat transfer (lipofilling) and liposuction to refine aesthetic outcomes both within the breast and donor site.
