- Breast DIEP Flap Reconstruction
Right side breast cancer. This patient had nipple sparing mastectomies, and Dr. Hubert performed DIEP flap reconstruction of both breasts at the same time (called immediate reconstruction). Note the tiny skin islands (football-shaped) from each DIEP flap located just to the side of each areola. These are used to monitor the flaps after surgery by attaching the laser probe. Normally the skin islands are removed in a short, outpatient surgery. However, this patient declined removal. No radiation for this patient.
