PRMA surgeons performing DIEP flap breast reconstruction
DIEP flap continues to prove to be a great option for most patients who desire breast reconstruction.
There are many options available today for patients who choose to undergo reconstruction.
Prior research from PRMA Plastic Surgery found that DIEP flap reconstruction is a safe option for obese patients .
New research from PRMA published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery shows that patients report significant improvements in breast satisfaction, psychosocial and sexual well-being after DIEP flap reconstruction, including those patients with a high BMI (body mass index) of 30 or over.
The survey results found that breast satisfaction, psychosocial and sexual well-being scores increased significantly after DIEP flap reconstruction across the board.
Prior to DIEP flap surgery the scores were low, but after reconstruction, these scores significantly improved.
