Breast reconstruction with the latissimus dorsi muscle flap combined with a saline-filled implant was performed. Using an endoscope, additional operative scarring due to muscle harvesting was avoided. The operative techniques were easier than usual endoscopic surgery because most of the procedures were performed under direct vision. The procedures are presented in this article.
