Rebuilding Your Life

The “muscle flap” breast reconstruction technique is an effective way to safely and naturally rebuild the breast, using tissues from your very own body. By bringing tissue from the back to reconstruct your breast mound, you can avoid the use of synthetic materials, and enjoy naturalistic results that restore your bust and your quality of life in equal measure. Reach out and set up your consultation with Dr. Wirth to learn more about what this procedure can do for you.

Am I a Good Candidate?

When it comes to rebuilding your breasts, you have a number of options available to you, and Dr. Wirth prides himself on his ability to offer a variety of surgical techniques. No two patients are the same, in terms of their physical bodies, and their cosmetic goals. Together, you and Dr. Wirth will come up with a surgical plan that addresses both, enabling you to enjoy the results you know you deserve.

Dr. Wirth’s extensive training and experience enable him to offer TRAM flap and DIEP flap muscle flap reconstruction, giving you options when it comes to the specifics of the surgical technique used in your procedure.

The TRAM Flap Approach

This technique is known as the Transverse Rectus Abdominus Myocutaneous flap, and utilizes muscle and skin tissues that are taken from the abdominal region. This enables you to harvest any excess fat and tissue that might be causing issues in the area, as well.

The DIEP Flap Approach

This technique, which stands for the Deep Interior Epigastric Perforator flap, uses the same tissues as those that might be addressed in a tummy tuck, but does not utilize any muscle from the abdominal area.

Your Recovery Process

During your consultation with Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS, he’ll talk you through just about everything you might want to know, when it comes to the particulars of your procedure. He’ll talk you through the details of your recovery process, so that you know exactly what to expect, and can have an accurate idea as to when you’ll be able to return to your day-to-day routine. We’ll also set up a series of follow-up appointments with you, so we can monitor your progress and be sure you’re healing up nicely.
