DIEP flap breast reconstruction is an advanced procedure provided to correct congenital breast abnormalities, loss of breast volume, and breast asymmetry after a mastectomy. Patients in Houston, Texas, can have the procedure performed at Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery Center. Managed by Dr Sean Boutros, this center is renowned for providing the latest aesthetic and reconstructive surgical procedures. Dr Sean Boutros has extensive training and experience in providing DIEP flap breast reconstruction.
In this procedure, the patient’s own fat, certain blood vessels, and skin of the Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP) tissue of the abdomen are transferred to the chest area, to connect to the existing blood vessels there. The abdominal muscles are not touched, and this prevents any abdominal hernia that can result from weakened muscles. After the procedure, many patients have achieved much firmer and softer breasts. As the tissue is removed from the abdomen, DIEP flap surgery provides the added benefit of a tummy tuck.
The procedure is considered safe, since no foreign materials are inserted into the body. Moreover, downtime is minimal and patients can get back to work within a few days after the surgery.
Dr. Boutros is especially dedicated to providing rhinoplasty, facial rejuvenation surgery, ear reconstruction, cleft lip and palate reconstruction, and craniofacial surgery. Surgeries at Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery Center take place on Thursdays.
Appointments may be scheduled between the hours of 9:00am and 4:30pm, Monday through Friday, by calling (713) 791-0700.
