I had bilat. mastectomies in May of 07, L for cancer with lymph node involvement and R for prophylaxis. Tissue
expanders were placed at the time of surgery, but because of several complications following surgery I'm just about to
complete my chemo and start radiation. My plastic surgeon now tells me we will need to do a tram flap on the left
instead of an implant because of the radiation I need to undergo. My question - is it possible to make both breasts
very similar if doing a tram flap on one side and an implant on the other?
