Has anyone had a bilateral mastectomy with tram flap? I am considering this as a preventive option

    Hi dawn, I had a bilateral mastectomy last April . I had good natural looking results from my ps . The only down fall is that you stomach feels very tight and it does loosen in time . I did tram flap because I rather use my own tissue than put a foreign object in my body . Hope this helps.

    DIEP flap does the same thing but doesn't take any of the ab muscle.
