Houston, Texas (PressExposure) February 15, 2012 -- DIEP flap breast reconstruction, the advanced surgical procedure for autologous tissue transplantation has a definite edge over the TRAM flap procedure in that it is less invasive and ensures faster recovery. With his vast experience in reconstructive surgical techniques, plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Boutros offers personalized plans for great results for breast reconstruction at his AAAASF-certified Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery Center in Houston, Texas.
For women who have undergone a mastectomy, have congenital breast anomalies or breast asymmetry, DIEP flap surgery is now the preferred choice. This is also the ideal procedure for overweight women or women who have had previous abdominal surgery. This innovative breast reconstruction technique involves isolating a flap of skin along with the underlying fat from the Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP) artery in the lower abdominal region. No muscle fibers are removed, just tiny blood vessels and tissues. The flap is transferred and reattached to the blood vessels in the chest. Soft and natural looking breasts can be molded from this tissue.
Dr. Sean Boutros has performed several DIEP breast reconstruction surgeries and can ensure optimal long-term aesthetic results. The benefits of DIEP breast reconstruction surgery include:
Reduced abdominal wall complications as no muscle fibers are removed
Better and more vigorous skin circulation compared to other procedures
Offers plastic surgeon greater freedom for reconstruction
Entire DIEP flap is used to achieve desired breast volume
Soft, natural looking breasts
Dr. Boutros develops a customized plan for each of his patients based on their specific issues. His experience in microsurgery ensures optimal results.
