Look on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons web site and a section called Match, in order to locate a plastic surgeon in your area and learn about their area of expertise.

Although there are plastic surgeons in private practice performing these procedures, most are associated with a university. UC San Diego is a place to start. Call and contact the department of plastic surgery and ask if they perform this type of surgery. If not, ask where to go.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. I would recommend reaching out to local plastic surgery academic training programs and using the "find a surgeon" tool on this website to locate various surgeons who may offer DIEPs as part of their practice. Hope this helps.

Hello, and thank you for this question. I know there are qualified surgeons that practice at the Scripps health clinic in the Department of plastic surgery. The Chairman is Dr. Salvador Pacella, and I do believe they have a specialist in microvascular surgery as well. Best Of luck.
