Case Study: BREAST RECONSTRUCTION BY TRAM FLAP

Breast Reconstruction by Tram Flap – Case 22

In TRAM flap surgery, the abdominal skin and fat (together with the rectus muscle for blood supply) is used to reconstruct the breast after mastectomy. Skin incisions usually adhere to oncologic principles which often dictate skin around and including biopsy sites and nipple and areola are removed along with all the breast tissue.

From Top to bottom: Post op demonstrate how TRAM flap can make a breast nearly a mirror image to the existing unaffected breast.

An outstanding aesthetic outcome in total breast reconstruction.
