DIEP FLAP for breast augmentation

I'm considering breast augmentation, and I've read about a procedure called DIEP FLAP which sounds like a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation at the same time. But, I think it's mostly used after mastectomies. Has anyone had it for a 'normal' augmentation?

Re: DIEP FLAP for breast augmentation

I have never heard of that for augmentation. I have a friend who had fat injected to rebuild her breasts after a masectomy. She did have to have it done twice as the fat was absorbed but it has been twenty years now and she still looks great.
