The SGAP Flap Procedure
During the SGAP procedure, fat, skin, and blood vessels are removed from your upper buttocks and hip area and moved to your chest to create a breast mound. Dr. Cusimano will skillfully reattach the blood vessels of the flap to the blood vessels in your chest using microsurgery. Many surgeons prefer to do each breast separately, which can mean two different operations spaced a few months apart. However, this can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Cusimano. Because skin and fat are removed from the buttocks and relocated to the chest, your buttocks will be tighter, and appear as though you have had a buttock lift. You will have a scar near the top of your buttocks, but this can easily be covered with a bikini bottom or underwear.
