DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction Featured on NBC KXAN

For the many women that battle breast cancer, the recovery process can be just as major of a phase as the treatment. Survivors look to breast reconstruction to fully become themselves again. For a more natural, less invasive procedure, DIEP Flap is an ideal option. Fifty-one year-old Anita Arnet tells KXAN about her experience with cancer, going through chemotherapy, and using Seton’s DIEP Flap procedure. Her choice for flap reconstruction was rooted in its natural approach of using the patient’s own tissue to recreate the natural breast. Dr. Potter speaks to KXAN about this innovative method and the benefits.
