What is SGAP Flap Reconstruction?

GAP stands for gluteal artery perforator, a blood vessel that runs through your buttocks. A SGAP flap (superior gluteal artery perforator), uses this blood vessel and skin and fat from the upper buttocks/hip to reconstruct the breast. No muscle is used during the SGAP flap procedure, so it is considered a muscle-sparing type of flap. The SGAP procedure is technically more difficult than other types of flap procedures and usually takes more time to complete. Dr. Cusimano is one of the few plastic surgeons who is trained in this flap procedure to provide you with optimal results.
