When you undergo breast reconstruction after a mastectomy, you have two options for how your procedure will be performed: expander and implant reconstruction or autologous tissue reconstruction.
One technique used in autologous tissue reconstruction, the DIEP flap method, uses excess skin and fat from the abdominal wall to rebuild the breast mound. In the following video, Dr. Jay Orringer discusses the potential benefits to having your breast reconstruction performed using the DIEP flap method.
