- Deep Inferior Epigastric Artery Perforator Flap
This patient was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer of one breast. She desired bilateral mastectomy and immediate reconstruction using her own tissue. Bilateral skin sparing mastectomy was performed with immediate DIEP flap reconstruction. She underwent a later outpatient surgery to shape the breast and lift the breasts. Her left nipple was reconstructed and she will go on to have a tattoo on the left to pigment the new nipple and areola.
