SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Bryan Gawley has collaborated with Dr.

Ned Snyder IV to create the Arizona Center for Reconstructive Breast Surgery. Located at Dr. Gawley's north Scottsdale facility, Dr. Gawley and Dr. Snyder work together to perform breast
reconstruction procedures for patients who have previously undergone a mastectomy.

While our surgeons do not perform the mastectomy procedure, we work with the best oncologic breast surgical specialists in the valley. Dr. Gawley and Dr. Snyder perform an array of reconstruction options, including bilateral mastectomy, flap reconstruction, and oncoplastic breast surgery. One breast reconstruction technique they perform is the DIEP flap reconstruction technique.

The DIEP Flap Procedure

This reconstruction option uses a patient's own fat to reform the breast mound. During the procedure, skin, fat, and blood vessels are removed from the wall of the lower abdomen and moved to the chest. Blood vessels from the flap removed from this flap are then reattached to the chest using microsurgery.  A DIEP flap is considered a muscle-sparing flap procedure since no muscles are cut or removed. This often allows for most patients to recover more quickly than other types of flap procedures.

About the Surgeons

Dr. Gawley is board-certified by the American board of plastic surgery and specializes in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the body, breasts, and face. He is also the founder of Gawley Plastic Surgery and the Chief of Plastic Surgery at the HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center.
