Dr. Desai and Dr. Julie Buckley, a breast cancer survivor and a patient of Dr. Desai, discuss the DIEP flap that utlitizes your abdominal tissue to reconstruct your breast while receiving a tummy tuck. The advantage of DIEP Flap breast reconstruction over traditional techniques like a TRAM flap are that no muscle of fascia are taken. Therefore, the patients are able to preserve their core strength and the chance of hernia is minimized.
