Mediclinic Welcare Hospital offers advanced breast reconstruction services in the form of DIEP flap surgery. More and more women are opting to have a more natural approach to reconstructive surgery than prosthesis implants. DIEP (deep inferior epigastric perforators) flap surgery offers the patient a natural breast that will grow with her as she gains or loses weight, giving her a natural appearance.
A DIEP flap is a micro vascular technique that uses skin, fat, and blood vessels taken from the patient’s abdomen to form the breast. The procedure is done by a specialised plastic and reconstructive team at Mediclinic Welcare Hospital
