Sioux Falls, SD -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/25/2014 -- In 2013, Plastic Surgery Associates of South Dakota announced its decision to begin offering the new Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforators (DIEP) Flap surgery for breast reconstruction. This procedure uses fat, skin, and blood vessels from the lower belly to rebuild the breast without using any muscle. This relatively new and cutting-edge DIEP Flap procedure is quickly becoming a popular choice for breast cancer patients due to its history of success and recovery in patients. This procedure requires highly specialized surgical training that only a few doctors in Sioux Falls possess.
The board certified liposuction Sioux Falls surgeons at Plastic Surgery Associates of South Dakota have the special Sioux Falls surgical training and microsurgery expertise to successfully reconstruct the breast without muscle, and reattach the flap blood vessels to the chest blood vessels. This one-time, 13-hour DIEP Flap procedure results in quick recovery and a lower risk for abdominal muscle strength loss because no muscle is used.
The benefits of DIEP Flap surgery include a shorter recovery time, less post-operative pain, a slimmer abdomen, and natural looking appearance. The surgery also preserves abdominal strength and lessens the likelihood of a hernia.
The Plastic Surgery Associates of South Dakota employs highly qualified, board certified surgeons who offer plastic and reconstructive surgical services, including the new DIEP Flap procedure for breast reconstruction. The breast augmentation Sioux Falls SD clinic serves patients within South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and North Dakota. It also has many patients who travel from outside the five state area specifically for its surgeons’ expertise.
