Abstract

DIEP Flap Technique for Umbilicus Reconstruction

This article describes a new perforator flap technique for reconstruction of the umbilicus. Previously described techniques for umbilicus reconstruction are not satisfactory because of their aesthetic limitations. Namely the need for incisions outside of the reconstructed umbilicus; limited depth of the reconstructed umbilicus; or reliance on skin grafting, which results in a scarred and contracted umbilicus. All of these limitations are eliminated by utilizing a perforator flap for umbilical reconstruction.
