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. This segment focuses on patients who chose to have their implant reconstruction converted to DIEP (natural tissue) flaps. They will discuss their experiences, post-surgical goals, and the other factors that contributed to the choices they made.

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.
