TRAM Flap Surgery
TRAM flap surgery is a surgical reconstruction technique of the breast in which tissue from the lower abdominal wall is grafted onto the chest. The procedure’s name comes from “Transverse Rectus Abdominis Muscle.” A small portion is removed along with fat, skin and blood vessels.
The flap can either remain attached to its original blood supply or be connected to the new site using advanced microsurgical techniques that Dr. Feledy is uniquely trained for.
‘There is no question my mind that Dr. Feledy is probably one of the best surgeons doing breast reconstruction today. I had seen multiple doctors and surgeons and he is the one I truly trusted with my situation.’ – K.M.*
