Posted Oct 23 2013 9:27am
Experienced in various surgical procedures, Dr. Sean Boutros is a skilled plastic surgeon specialized in DIEP flap breast reconstruction. He performs this advanced breast reconstruction surgery at his Houston-based practice, Houston Plastic and Craniofacial Surgery Center. If you’ve just had a mastectomy or have any kind of breast abnormality or breast asymmetry concern, Dr. Boutros can provide you with the right advice and a personalized solution.
DIEP (deep inferior epigastric perforators) flap surgery ensures faster recovery and more natural looking results compared to the more invasive TRAM (transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap) flap procedure. DIEP flap breast reconstruction involves the transfer of specific abdominal tissue to the breast. If necessary, the nipple is augmented and the areola, recreated. No abdominal muscle is removed during the procedure which not only allows the surgeon to reconstruct your breast, but to also tighten the abdomen for a tummy tuck effect.
When you schedule your consultation at this AAAASF-certified Houston plastic surgery center, you are first examined to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure. The surgery is performed using the latest techniques. His professional expertise and skill allow Dr. Boutros to deliver outstanding results for DIEP flap reconstruction. The friendly and caring staff go all out to put you at ease and ensure that your recovery is quick and smooth.
