    DIEP reconstruction webcast from Beth Israel Hospital
    kayjoedwards posted:
    Great webcast with plastic surgeon and breast surgeon discussing DIEP reconstruction. Video shows bilateral mastectomy and DIEP reconstruction. There is also a shorter version with less surgery video for those who don't want to see so much.
    Really good resource for anyone considering this type of reconstruction or reconstruction in general.

    I just finished watching this. It really is so incredible!
    Plan for about an hour, but it is well worth it! "C..RN!"

    This was really great! Glad to know there is a shorter version as I know some would not be able to deal with the full version, although I found it just great! "C...RN!"

    Rachael67, I am just seeing there is a shorter version, which I have not watched, but, really, I will and the content of what I did watch was great! So, I'm sure the shorter version is great also!
