There are many different types of surgical techniques when it comes to breast reconstruction. Depending on your body type or your aesthetic goals, breast reconstruction can be tailored to fit your needs. Typically, breast reconstruction involves using donor flaps of tissue from other parts of the body to reconstruct a breast.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Nicholas Nikolov in order to discuss which options are right for you. An example of one of the flap reconstruction techniques is DIEP flap reconstruction. DIEP varies from some of the other tissue-borrowing techniques, because it involves grafting fat, skin and blood vessels but spares the muscles. Recovery from DIEP breast reconstruction is quicker and poses less risk of abdominal muscle complications.
