DIEP Flap Surgery
“Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforatorsis” is known as DIEP, which means an advanced free-flap breast reconstruction technique that uses the patient’s own body tissues. Part of the name means that the blood supply for the tissue flap is transferred from the abdomen to the new breast during surgery.
This procedure is done in combination with a breast implant. It is one of several breast reconstruction procedures performed by Dr. Feledy, who is considered by many to be among the best breast reconstruction surgeon Washington DC has to offer.
‘I couldn’t even believe the result of my breast reconstruction from Dr. Feledy. Not only did the surgery help me feel more self-confident with my appearance, I felt like I got part of myself back.’ – N.S.*
