Delayed bilateral DIEP flaps following radiation therapy
Get In Touch
This patient had previously undergone bilateral mastectomies, chemotherapy and radiation therapy to her right chest. Dr. Snyder performed a delayed bilateral DIEP flap breast reconstruction and nipple reconstruction. As you can see in her photos, skin from her abdomen was used to replace skin lost during the mastectomy procedure. This allows for a good shape and size of the reconstructed breast.
