Breast reconstruction is a microsurgical procedure that recreates a woman’s breasts post-mastectomy. Performed using different techniques, many women throughout Texas go for the DIEP Flap option – a technique where a flap made of skin and fat from the abdomen is transferred to rebuild the breast mound.
Undergoing a DIEP Flap Reconstruction is a big decision – one that should not be taken lightly. Choosing a nearby doctor without the necessary experience and skill set can be risky. Why settle if the top DIEP Flap surgeons are simply a state drive away?
Our surgeons at Memorial Plastic Surgery have been perfecting the DIEP Flap procedure for more than a decade in their practice – carrying out hundreds of reconstructive procedures a year. All board-certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Hsu and Dr. Roehl give only the highest quality of reconstruction experience.
