Cold Sensitivity After Breast Reduction

Evaluating Cold Sensitivity Following Autologous and Implant-Based Breast Reconstruction using the BREAST-Q Sensation Module and Infrared Thermal Imaging. Our high-volume breast reconstruction program has observed several implant-based breast reconstruction patients reporting cold sensitivity. The objective of this study is to evaluate breast sensation and infrared (IR) thermal images pre- and 6-months post- immediate breast reconstruction (implant or autologous) following mastectomy. This project is funded by the Plastic Surgery Foundation (PSF).
