TUG Flap Breast Reconstruction

The Transverse Upper Gracilis flap takes advantage of the soft skin and fat of the inner thigh which is creatively fashioned into a breast.  The incision is concealed near the groin to complete the recontouring of the inner thigh.

The DIEP or TUG flap results in a breast reconstruction made from your own tissue so it looks and feels natural. Since it is living tissue, there is no implant that could break or needs replacement. Your surgeon will discuss the options for the best reconstruction.
