DAY -2 DIEP Defined #100DaysDIEP

Definition: Deep Inferior Epigastric Artery Perforator (DIEP) Flap “DIEP flap surgery is a breast reconstruction after a mastectomy of a single or both breasts by using natural fat from the patient's own body. ... blood vessels called deep inferior epigastric perforators (DIEP), as well as the skin and fat connected to them, are removed from the lower abdomen and transferred to the chest to reconstruct a breast ... After the skin, tissues and perforators have been dissected, the flap is transplanted and connected to the patient's chest using microsurgery. The plastic surgeon then shapes the flap to create the new breast.”
