ICP Flap (Intercostal Perforator Flap)
The intercostal perforator flap is a rotational flap composed of skin and fat that is transferred from the chest wall to the breast reconstruction site without the need for microsurgery. ICP flaps are usually smaller in volume than its cousin the TDAP flap.
Dr. Marga would be pleased to discuss with you the use of an ICP flap should your breast reconstruction plan need a small revision such as this.
ICP flaps have been used in combination with breast implants to provide more soft tissue coverage over breast implants at the level of the mastectomy incision.
