An established AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery center in Texas, Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery offers superior DIEP Flap breast reconstruction for women who have had a mastectomy. The plastic surgeons here are specialized in this cutting-edge technique which uses the patient’s own tissue for breast reconstruction.
In DIEP (deep inferior epigastric perforators) flap surgery, a flap of tissue which includes blood vessels, skin and fat from the woman’s lower abdomen is used as donor tissue. The plastic surgeon removes and transfers this flap to the chest and attaches it to the blood vessels there. The surgeon reconstructs and shapes the breast after the blood vessels are attached. As the patient’s own tissues are used, the result appears natural. The procedure also involves the recreation of the nipple and the areola complex.

One of the main advantages of the DIEP procedure is that keeps the abdominal muscle in place. This helps to preserve abdominal strength and reduces the chances of a hernia and shortens recovery time. Women undergoing DIEP Flap reconstruction at this Texas surgical center enjoy significant benefits

• Soft, natural looking breasts
