GAP Flap

Women who do not have an adequate amount of abdominal tissue for a DIEP flap or SIEA flap reconstruction may be candidates for GAP (gluteal artery perforator) flap breast reconstruction. This procedure uses excess skin and fat from the gluteal (buttock) region and leaves all the gluteal muscle behind. Sparing the muscle preserves function and makes recovery easier.
