Diep Flap Surgery

A SEAMLESS APPROACH TO BREAST CANCER DETECTION, REMOVAL, TREATMENT, & RECONSTRUCTION

What is DIEP Flap Surgery?

DIEP Flap surgery is a state-of-the-art reconstruction technique that involves using a flap of your tissue, called an autologous flap, which is taken from your abdomen, back, buttocks, or other area to reconstruct your missing breast. During the procedure, an oval incision is made in the abdomen, and skin and fat tissue are excised. Being  a candidate for DIEP Flap surgery depends on several factors such as body type, lifestyle, and personal preference.

  • Less invasive as other reconstructive techniques

  • Improved abdominal contour

  • More natural results than implants
