Breast reconstruction is an option many women will consider on their road to recovery from breast cancer. There are a number of techniques that are available, and these are recommended based on what makes the most sense for the patient. There are no cookie-cutter techniques, as each patient’s needs and goals are different.
Dr. Jay Granzow specializes in DIEP flap reconstruction. The DIEP breast reconstruction technique falls into the category of flap reconstruction. Flap reconstruction is one of the most common techniques performed and involves the use of donor tissue. Tissue is extracted from the abdominal area and used to reconstruct the breast. The result is both a newly constructed breast and an abdominoplasty.
