Unilateral DIEP Flap 1


This incredible patient presented to the clinic after undergoing a right-sided mastectomy for inflammatory breast cancer. She also underwent radiation and chemotherapy for her treatment. She was looking for improved symmetry to allow her to wear clothing without a prosthesis and feel comfortable in a bathing suit.
She underwent a right-sided DIEP flap with second-stage fat grafting to improve projection and nipple creation.  She is waiting to undergo 3D nipple tattooing on top of the nipple creation for the symmetry of her nipples.
