PRMA Performs 6,000th Free Flap

PRMA Plastic Surgery is updating their record books yet again with an amazing accomplishment! On November 19, 2015, our surgeons performed their 6,000th free flap breast reconstruction surgery!

“What an accomplishment for the PRMA team, says Dr. Peter Ledoux, “We wake up every day excited to rebuild lives and it’s an honor to have served all of these women.”

PRMA is one of the few centers in the world performing breast reconstruction on such a large scale and is leading the way in advanced reconstructive procedures like the DIEP flap. The surgeons and staff of PRMA strive to provide top quality, personalized care and results beyond expectations for all patients.

“This milestone is a true testimony to our passion in providing the most advanced reconstructive options to our patients,” says Dr. Oscar Ochoa.

Congratulations team and cheers to the next 6,000!
