Breast Reconstruction at Our Practice near New Orleans, Louisiana

If you have undergone a mastectomy, you deserve results from breast reconstruction that look and feel as natural as possible. Our practice is proud to offer what we consider to be the best method of breast reconstruction currently available: DIEP flap breast reconstruction. Only a small number of surgeons, including Dr. Kamran Khoobehi, have the skill and experience to successfully perform this advanced technique. Learn more about the DIEP flap procedure, also known as perforator breast reconstruction, at our New Orleans, Louisiana-area practice.

Advantages of DIEP flap Breast Reconstruction

Unlike other flap procedures that involve the transfer of muscle tissue to create a breast mound, DIEP flap breast reconstruction uses only skin and fat transfer in order to shape the new breast. Because muscle tissue is spared in DIEP flap breast reconstruction, the procedure is not as invasive as other methods, and it involves a shorter recovery period.

DIEP flap breast reconstruction also gives patients the added benefit of a tummy tuck.  The DIEP acronym stands for deep inferior epigastric perforator, and it refers to the stomach tissue that is used in the procedure. As Dr. Khoobehi removes this excess abdominal fat and skin for use in reconstructing the breast, the patient's midsection is contoured and slimmed.

Because the patient's own tissue and fat are being used to create the breast mound instead of the foreign materials that are used in other techniques, the breast reconstructed using the DIEP flap method is softer and more natural-looking. To learn more about the advantages of the DIEP flap method, please schedule a breast reconstruction consultation at our practice near New Orleans, Louisiana. You will feel welcome and at ease from the moment you enter our soothing, upscale office and meet personally with our esteemed plastic surgeon.
