Am I A Candidate for DIEP Flap surgery?

diep-flap-candidates

Many women who have had mastectomies are excellent candidates for breast reconstructive surgery provided they are in good health and have some extra fat and skin of their lower abdomen to be used for the reconstruction.

There are situations which make the DIEP Flap procedure more difficult, although not always impossible, to perform:

  • Previous tummy tuck or liposuction
  • Insufficient donor tissue (an abdomen that is too flat and tight)

In the event that you are not a candidate for the DIEP Flap procedure, it is possible for Dr. Orseck to perform a breast reconstruction using either alternative Flap procedures or implant-based techniques via the tissue expander method. Dr. Orseck will be happy to present all of the options that are available to you.
