Breast Reconstruction by Tram Flap – Case 15

Breast Reconstruction by Tram Flap – Case 15

The psychology of breast cancer, mastectomy surgery and immediate reconstruction cannot be over emphasized. This case shows a patient who had obviously been wearing a bikini prior to her post op photos (bottom row). For a patient to be able to wear a bikini after bilateral mastectomy and TRAM flap reconstruction shows the power of reconstruction and its ability to restore a sense of pride, wholeness and well being.
