Implant to DIEP Flap Conversion

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. In this segment, two physicians give us access to the clinical considerations that come into play when a patient decides they want to convert their implant breast reconstruction to a natural tissue DIEP flap breast reconstruction.

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.
