The Center for Natural
Breast Reconstruction®

We are Breast Reconstruction Specialists!


DIEP flap breast reconstruction and other advanced microsurgical breast reconstruction procedures currently have unique billing codes, known as “S-codes”. These specialized codes were created to allow U.S. microsurgeons to bill insurance plans for these procedures. However, the coding landscape is now changing in ways that will significantly limit patient access to these advanced reconstructive options.

Helping Women Make Smart, Informed Choices

At the Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction, we know there is an intrinsic connection between a woman’s body and her emotional well-being. After a mastectomy, a woman may feel a sense of detachment from herself, and we are here to help her feel whole again.

We’re dedicated to providing women with all of the information they need to make informed decisions about breast reconstruction. While our practice specializes in free flap procedures, we believe it’s our responsibility to offer every option and allow women to make the choice that they feel is right for them.

When making these essential decisions, you may be told you don’t have options beyond surgery using implants or muscle. However, you don’t have to make your final choice based solely on this initial conclusion. It’s valuable for you to seek an additional opinion, making certain you have enough accurate information to feel confident and ready when starting your reconstruction journey.

Our medical team believes in having an open and honest conversation about the breast reconstruction. Starting this process can be stressful, but you don’t have to do it alone. From financial questions to intimacy concerns, we are always here to help.


Our practice specializes in natural, muscle-sparing breast reconstruction options.


The DIEP flap, the most common type of natural breast reconstruction, uses tissue from the lower abdomen to reconstruct the breasts.

GAP Flap

GAP Flap reconstruction uses tissue from the buttock area. This procedure is an alternative to DIEP for women with minimal abdominal tissue.

PAP Flap

PAP Flap reconstruction uses the tissue of the upper thigh. For women with small breasts or less abdominal tissue, this surgery may be an ideal option.

Innovative Procedures

Alternative procedures have been developed to reconstruct the breasts using tissue from other areas of the body.


This innovative technique uses a nerve graft to restore sensation to the chest after mastectomy.

3D Nipple Tattooing

3-D nipple tattoos are uniquely designed by a professional tattoo artist to have the dimensional look of a real nipple.
