About GAP Flap Surgery (Gluteal Artery Perforator Flap)

GAP Flap Surgery Los Angeles

Women who do not have an adequate amount of abdominal tissue for reconstruction may be eligible for the GAP flap. This surgery uses fat and skin from the lower or the upper buttocks region. Like the DIEP and SIEA perforator flap procedures, all muscle in the area is spared. Incisions are easily hidden with underwear but the majority of surgeons prefer to perform the operation of only one breasts at a time. If only one of the breasts is reconstructed, it is recommendable that the patient have another surgery on the other buttocks for optimal symmetry.
