IGAP (inferior gluteal artery perforator) also utilizes blood vessels from the buttocks, but IGAP uses the tissue on the bottom of the buttocks, near the buttock crease.
Stacked GAP Flap
Stacked GAP flap takes a flap of skin from each upper buttock to recreate a single breast and takes longer than TRAM, DIEP, or SIEA flap surgery. It is recommended to those who do not have enough tissue in the other areas.
PAP (profunda artery perforator) flap, utilizes a blood vessel that runs through your thigh, along with skin and fat for breast reconstruction. PAP flap is a muscle-sparing flap surgery.
Body Lift Perforator Flap
Body lift perforator flap reconstruction combines DIEP flap and SGAP/Hip flap reconstruction, ideal for slim women with medium-to-large breasts who are having both of their breasts reconstructed but do not have enough abdominal or buttocks tissue to recreate the size of their breasts. It is also a great option for women who want to replace their breast implants for a more natural flap reconstruction.
