More Denver-area patients prefer muscle-sparing breast reconstruction

Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery announced Monday that surgeons at the practice performed their 500th DIEP flap breast reconstruction procedure this month. The deep inferior epigastric perfor ator artery (DIEP) flap spares the muscle to rebuild the breast after a mastectomy.

During a DIEP flap procedure, surgeons remove a portion of skin, fat and blood vessels from the lower abdominal wall and transfer the tissue to the chest using microsurger y. According to, women who undergo breast reconstruction with a DIEP flap typically have a shorter recovery time and tend not to lose muscle strength in the abdomen.

Dr. Christopher Williams, a board - certified plastic surgeon at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, said that the demand for flap procedures has seen "significant growth" in recent years, as demonstrated by the 500 and counting DIEP flap surgeries performed by t he practice in the Denver area.

"This is a remarkable landmark," he said. "It demonstrates the early success and ongoing commitment to providing patients in the Rocky Mountain region with complex microsurgical, muscle - sparing breast reconstruction."

Dr . Jeremy Williams said that DIEP flap procedures have become in - demand among both breast cancer survivors and women who have undergone prophylactic removal and reconstruction of the breast.
