This 63-year-old woman from Surprise, AZ came to our breast reconstruction center seeking our expertise with the DIEP flap breast reconstruction, which is performed by very few surgeons across the United States.  She was to undergo left mastectomy followed by radiation therapy, and a flap-based reconstruction was her ideal reconstruction for an immediate breast reconstruction.  She underwent the very complex, microsurgical DIEP flap breast reconstruction followed by a right breast reduction for symmetry.  We were able to obtain a large amount of tissue simply by using her abdominal fat/tissue without causing any functional deficit by leaving her muscle intact.  After photos demonstrate an excellent shape and size even after completion of her radiation therapy along with a natural-appearing and feeling reconstructed breast.  She is very happy with the size, shape, and feel of her reconstructed breast.   Case by Dr. Andres
