Advantages of DIEP Flap Reconstruction

Natural and Aesthetic Outcome

DIEP flap breast reconstruction utilizes the patient’s own lower abdominal tissue, resulting in a more natural appearance and feel compared to implant. This helps women regain their self-confidence and body image, usually with fewer surgeries than implant reconstruction.

Reduced Risk of Complications

By avoiding the use of implants, DIEP flap surgery reduces the risk of implant-related complications. This is especially true if patients have had previous implant problems such as infection or radiation injury.

Enhanced Abdominal Contour

The use of abdominal tissue in DIEP flap surgery results in an improved abdominal contour, providing patients with an added benefit similar to a tummy tuck procedure.

Long-term Solution

DIEP flap breast reconstruction offers a permanent solution that can significantly impact a woman’s quality of life for years to come. Since there are no implants, there is no need to change the implants every 10 years when they can leak or rupture. Since the tissue is the patient’s own, it will age with the patient very naturally.
