Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction

Home >> Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction
Perforator flap procedures are techniques used in reconstructive surgery where skin and/or subcutaneous fat are taken from other areas of the body to reconstruct the breasts without sacrificing the underlying muscle.

Who Can Get Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction?

Many women may seek Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction after receiving a mastectomy. After a mastectomy, many women want their breasts to have a natural, balanced appearance in certain types of clothing. Though you may be able to notice some difference between natural breast tissue and reconstructive breast tissue, Dr. Sadeghi’s techniques achieve a very natural even when wearing a bra or bathing suit.

Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction Procedures

Dr. Sadeghi practices four main types of Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction: The DIEP Flap Procedure (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator Flap), The GAP Flap (Gluteal Artery Perforator Flap), The PAP Flap (Produnda Artery Perforator Flap) and the TDAP Flap (Thoracodorsal Artery Perforator Flap).

Risks of Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction

As with any surgical procedure, breast reconstruction comes with risks. Some of these risks include capsular contracture, bleeding, infection, and scarring.

However, Dr. Sadeghi has performed thousands of breast reconstruction procedures for patients both inside and outside of the New Orleans Area.

Recovering From Natural Tissue Flap Reconstruction

Though your results will immediately be visible after your surgery, it’s important to give yourself enough time to heal. You’ll notice some swelling for the first week following the procedure. This is normal. As the swelling subsides, your new breast tissue will slowly stretch, and the result will be full and natural.
