Stomach (DIEP) flap reconstruction

Stomach (DIEP) flap reconstruction

The breast is reconstructed using excess skin and fat that women commonly have on their stomach. This technique requires the vessels that supply the fat and skin on the stomach to be isolated, to be cut and re-connected to an artery and vein close to the breast.
