Breast reconstruction can offer women recovering from mastectomy surgery a chance to return their lives to normal. TheDIEP flap reconstruction technique is one of the forms of breast reconstruction. DIEP flap reconstruction offers patients the opportunity to recreate the natural look and feel of the breasts without the sacrifice of muscle strength.
Some of the older breast reconstruction techniques required more extensive amounts of muscle and skin tissue to be grafted from the abdomen and used to recreate the breasts. This type of technique generally created complications such as weakness in the stomach and the potential development of hernias. The DIEP flap reconstruction technique is a more advanced form of breast reconstruction that can spare patients from muscle weakness.
