DIEP (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator) Flaps are one of the most advanced breast reconstruction techniques available. The skin and soft tissue that’s removed during your mastectomy is replaced with natural tissue and skin borrowed from your midsection.

Unlike conventional reconstructions, this refined perforator flap technique collects the necessary tissue to reform your breast without significantly weakening the abdominal muscles in your abdomen. The abdominal area is the most common area from which tissue is drawn for flap breast reconstruction, since excess fat and skin are usually found in this area. While the primary purpose of this procedure is to naturally reconstruct the breast, the contour of the abdomen is often improved, much like a tummy tuck.

Later, the nipples and areolas can be restored.


  • Dr. Miller and his team at Dreams Med Spa did a wonderful job from pre-op to surgery and follow up examinations. Takes the time to listen and finds exactly what works for you. Clean office and pre-op rooms, private and professional staff as well as on time appts. and follow up cares. I will be using them for any future needs I may have

  • Because I was treated for breast cancer at 32, I was fairly certain I would opt for reconstructive surgery. I didn't know which doc to go with. I'm so thankful someone steered me towards Dr. Miller. The process is a little lengthy in nature and getting "fills" to stretch the tissue to accommodate the new breast implants was not my favorite. But, cancer treatment is not a sprint...It's a marathon and this was just part of the treatment and recovery process. The discomfort was worth it, without a doubt. I'd do it again.

  • Since i was younger i knew i always wanted bigger breast. Once i was able to afford it i knew i had to do it and i’m soooo glad i did! This process was smooth and easier then i thought. If you are even questioning the procedure i suggest at least going in for a free consultation!!
