DIEP Flap Reconstruction

in Baton Rouge, Lousiana

DIEP flap reconstruction is a form of reconstruction that uses a flap of skin and subcutaneous fat from the abdomen to reconstruct the breast(s). DIEP stands for deep inferior epigastric perforator artery, which runs through the abdomen wall directly beneath the rectus muscle. During the operation the abdominal cavity is not entered and the rectus muscle meticulously dissected free from the vessels allowing for complete preservation of the muscle.  This procedure required special surgical training, as well as expertise in microsurgery, so not all surgeons can perform DIEP flap reconstruction, and it is not available at all hospitals. Dr. Cusimano is highly skilled in DIEP flap reconstruction, so you can feel confident choosing him as your reconstructive surgeon.
