DIEP Flap Reconstruction
DIEP flap breast reconstruction involves using a patient's own abdominal tissue, skin, and blood vessels to recreate her breasts after a mastectomy.
GAP Flap Reconstruction
We can remove tissue from the upper part of the buttocks to perform a GAP flap reconstruction after a mastectomy if there's not enough abdomen tissue.
SIEA Flap Reconstruction
The difference between the SIEA (superficial inferior epigastric artery) flap and DIEP flap is the artery used to supply blood flow to the new breast.
TUG Flap Reconstruction
The 2nd most common breast reconstruction at our practice is the TUG flap reconstruction (inner thigh tissue is harvested to recreate your breasts).
PAP Flap Reconstruction
We can use the tissue from your outer upper thigh to recreate your breast after having a mastectomy. This is called a PAP flap breast reconstruction.
Breast Implant Reconstruction
Implant-based breast reconstruction is one of the most common surgeries Dr. Snyder and Dr. Whitfield perform at the Breast and Body Center of Austin.
Our plastic surgeons can recreate your nipples with surgical means, or you can have a realistic 3D nipple and areola tattooed on after reconstruction.
BRCA Gene Reconstruction
After testing positive for the BRCA gene mutation, you will have options. We offer reconstruction for women choosing to have a life-saving mastectomy.
