OUR PATIENT RESULTS GALLERY: BEFORE & AFTER IGAP & SGAP FLAP PHOTOS
For women who are thin, cannot, or do not wish, to use their abdomen or thigh as the source tissue (donor site) for breast reconstruction the IGAP or SGAP flap may be an excellent choice. Like the DIEP, PAP and IGAP flaps, this perforator flap also does not sacrifice any muscle. The underlying gluteus maximus buttock muscle is entirely preserved with this operation. The IGAP & SGAP Flap pictures in this section are of actual patients of surgeon Dr. Joshua Levine.
