Deep Interior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP) Flap

Home >> Deep Interior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP) Flap
This procedure allows your surgeon to use only the fat and skin from the abdominal wall in your lower abdomen for your breast reconstruction, based on that area’s deep blood supply. Abdominal muscle is left intact, allowing you to continue to use the abdominal muscles to maintain your core strength. The DIEP Flap procedure avoids synthetic breast implants so that results may look more natural. It uses only fat tissue, so no muscle is sacrificed. The procedure removes fat from the upper hips to reconstruct your breasts. DIEP Flap surgeries should last around 2 to 4 hours for a unilateral procedure, and 4 to 6 hours for a bilateral procedure. The length of the hospital stay should last 1 to 2 days for a unilateral procedure, and 2 to 4 days for a bilateral procedure. You can expect to be back to work within 2 to 4 weeks after your surgery.

“Dr. Sadeghi is a true class act. He’s extremely knowledgeable, meticulous and passionate about his work and it shows. I was so nervous when I first consulted with him, but he made me feel so comfortable and really worked with me in regards to the outcome I wished to achieve. Throughout the consult/surgery/post-op process, he always showed the utmost respect for me and assured me that we were going to achieve the most natural results as possible (which was very important to me).
