Last month, the plastic surgeons at The Breast Center of Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery performed their 500th DIEP flap procedure. Board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Christopher Williams and Dr. Jeremy Williams are proud to be able to offer this advanced breast reconstruction procedure to women from across Colorado.

DIEP flap breast reconstruction is one of the "autologous tissue" methods of reconstructing the breasts. These methods use your own tissue to re-create the breast mound, instead of using breast implants. The DIEP flap is a flap of skin, fat and blood vessels harvested from the abdomen.

If you are a good candidate for this procedure, the benefits can include that it allows you to use only natural tissue to reconstruct your breasts, which some women prefer. It can also have a tummy flattening effect because the excess tissue is harvested from that area.

To find out if the DIEP flap procedure or another breast reconstruction method may be right for you and your expectations of reconstructive surgery, please call The Breast Center of Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery at (720) 457-4461 to schedule a consultation.
