DIEP Flap in Thin Patients

Breast reconstruction decisions are about more than clinical information. Your individual body, life, habits, emotional wellbeing, and more can and should play a vital role in what you and your surgical team choose to do. This segment hones in on DIEP flap breast reconstruction in patients who do not necessarily appear to have enough tissue to choose DIEP flaps, including what made these patients pursue this particular natural tissue reconstruction procedure.

Your Voice, Your Choice is a video series created with support from the Plastic Surgery Foundation’s Breast Reconstruction Awareness Grant that aims to offer a window into the breast reconstruction decision-making process via firsthand accounts from patients and physician retrospectives that dig into the minutiae of each type of procedure.
