AFC Surgical Photo Database

View Database

The Aesthetic Flat Closure (AFC) Surgical Photo Database is a collection of surgical before and after photos filterable by patient body habitus characteristics and surgical/medical parameters. All photos are submitted by surgeons and approved by the Database management team.

Reconstruction of the chest wall contour is important to patients, and the Database serves as a resource for patients and providers.
