DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction

The DIEP flap is the most advanced form of breast reconstruction available today and is the preferred reconstructive technique at PRMA. 

The procedure uses the patient's own abdominal skin and fat to reconstruct a natural, warm, soft breast after mastectomy. Unlike the  TRAM flap, the DIEP preserves all the abdominal muscles. Only abdominal skin and fat are removed similar to a "tummy tuck". Saving the abdominal muscles means patients experience less pain, enjoy a faster recovery, maintain their core strength long-term, and have a lower risk of complications.
