About TRAM Flap Breast Reconstruction
The TRAM (Transverse Rectus Abdominus Myocutaneous) flap technique re-uses the excess skin and fatty tissue many women have in their lower abdomen to create the breasts. The advantage of this procedure is that the breasts are very soft and natural since they consist of your own natural tissues. In addition, you also get a â€˜tummy tuck!â€™
