My surgeon (who published on TRAM in 2002) said he now uses DIEP most often. DIEP does not remove any muscle although it impacts muscle to "follow" the blood vessels. He claims patients do not report muscle weakness later. I am advocating for TUG and just starting to read about SGAP. Bottom line, there are many different locations to harvest the flap. Completely empathize that this is scary and overwhelming. TG there are good search engines and sites like this to help us get the most from our doctors. Good luck.
