Obese and overweight patients represent a challenging surgical group for autologous free-flap breast reconstruction. There is a paucity of information regarding post-operative patient-reported satisfaction in this increasingly prevalent cohort. This retrospective study aimed to determine using BREAST-Q patient-reported satisfaction amongst normal, overweight and obese patients receiving autologous free-flap breast reconstruction.
