DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction

DIEP flap breast reconstruction uses the tissue from the lower abdomen to reconstruct the breast. This allows a natural match to the other breast. What can determine if a patient is a candidate for DIEP flap breast reconstruction is the amount of tissue on the lower abdomen and presence or absence of abdominal scars from previous surgeries. The satisfaction rate from autologous flap surgeries is high.
