Pedicled flaps


The term pedicled flap describes a technique whereby skin, and sometimes muscle and fat, can be transferred from one site to another.  This transferred tissue may be used to reconstruct a breast or cover a difficult wound.  Your plastic surgeon can advise you regarding the appropriate technique for you, as well as the risks and complications.
