Mark Melendez MD

The most common perforator flap procedure Dr. Melendez performs is the DIEP (deep inferior epigastric perforator) flap, in which excess skin and fat along the lower portion of the abdomen are used to create a new ‘natural’ breast after a mastectomy. He also offers SIEA (Superficial Inferior Epigastric Artery) and TUG (Transverse Upper Gracilis) flaps as well as tissue expanders, implants, and fat grafting for breast reconstruction.
