Flap Surgery: Natural Breast Reconstruction Using Your Own Tissue

Flap surgery is natural breast reconstructive surgery using tissue lifted from a donor site and moved to a recipient site with an intact blood supply. This flap procedure is unlike a graft, which does not have an intact blood supply and therefore relies on growth of new blood vessels.
