DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction

DIEP Flap Reconstruction

DIEP Flap breast reconstruction is one the of most popular and advanced forms of breast reconstructive surgery available. DIEP Flap, which stands for Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforators, is a microsurgical technique performed by our highly skilled surgeons.

With this procedure, we use a flap of excess skin, fat and blood vessels from the lower abdomen to construct a new breast of soft, warm and living tissue from the patient’s body, all while leaving the abdominal muscles intact. This leaves the patient with improved abdominal contouring, akin to a ‘tummy tuck.’ DIEP Flap reconstruction may be performed immediately following a mastectomy or at a later date, whichever may work best for our patients.
