Fig. 2. Sonographic findings after breast reconstruction with rotation flap. (A) Structural distortion which is consistent with the axillary incision is shown, and there is a hypoechoic nodule (arrow) which is presumed as postoperative granuloma or fat necrosis. Since the patient had pain with this lesion, the pathologic confirmation was performed with needle biopsy and it was revealed as fat necrosis. (B, C) Continuous glandular scarring is observed along with the incision, indicating that the skin and the parenchyma were rotated simultaneously. (D) Normal glandular structures are found on the lower central part of the breast. There is no specific findings except a small, simple cyst (arrow).
