Bilateral DIEP flaps are rewarding procedures to perform. In patients who have larger breasts and who undergo mastectomy, there are often implants that are not large enough to adequately reconstruct the breasts. In these patients the tissue from the lower abdomen can be used to reconstruct the breasts and provide a natural look and feel to the breast. After the reconstruction, nipple areola complex tattoo reconstruction can be performed to provide an additional aesthetic improvement to the reconstruction.
