Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Flap Reconstruction

Flap Reconstruction

Flap surgery involves moving healthy, live tissue from one location of the body to another - often to areas that have lost skin, fat, muscle movement, and/or skeletal support.  

Flap surgery for Breast reconstruction involves taking a section of tissue from one area of your body and moving it to your chest to create a new breast mound.

A common technique is the TRAM (transverse rectus abdominous muscle) flap. A TRAM flap involves removing an area of fat, skin, and muscle from the abdomen and stitching it in place to the mastectomy wound.
