Slide 1: Advantages of DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction Breast reconstruction following mastectomy in breast cancer cases is very common and helps to ease the psychological trauma associated with breast removal in women. Although there are several reconstruction techniques, the DIEP flap technique is quickly becoming popular due to its many advantages The Many Advantages of DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction Surgery The main advantage of this innovative technique is that in DIEP flap only autologous skin and fat from the abdominal area of the patient are used for reconstruction of the breast. The abdominal muscles are not removed or disturbed. This preserves the muscle strength in the abdominal region and helps abdominal hernia prevention caused by weakened muscles. Another definite advantage is that the recovery is quick and patients require only a three-day hospital stay. In fact, the breast reconstruction surgery can sometimes be done alongside the mastectomy, removing the need of going through another round of surgery and hospitalization. The DIEP flap is taken from the abdomen by making an incision along the abdominal folds to avoid prominent scars. The blood vessels are joined with the help of microsurgery to the existing blood vessels of the breast area and natural blood flow is maintained. This helps making the newly constructed breast as natural as can be. Contouring of the newly formed breast takes place at the same time to achieve a symmetrical and uniform look. One decisive advantage of the DIEP flap method is that there is no synthetic material or mesh used making it safer and helping the body to adjust better. Overview of the Benefits of DIEP Flap Procedure • Muscles are not removed and abdomen does not weaken
Slide 2: • Future abdominal hernia due to weakened muscles can be avoided • Patient’s own skin and fat is used which promotes better adjustment • Natural flow of blood makes the breast as natural as possible • Abdomen looks taut and flat after the “mini tummy tuck” The decided advantages of DIEP flap breast reconstruction have made it very popular but due to surgical intricacies involved there are only a few centers offering this procedure. Only a skilled surgeon is able to perform the DIEP surgery successfully.
