This week, James E. Craigie, MD, of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your question.
Question: I had a tram flap done back in 2012. Didn’t like the results so I didn’t go back to get it finished. I was to receive a breast reduction on my left breast because I was heavy. My left breast is still larger than my right. Can it be re-fixed to how I want so that I can be happy with my body?
Answer: Thanks for your question. Yes you can still have a procedure to adjust your other breast. There is a good chance that adjusting your “heavy” breast will improve the match or symmetry between the two and improve your overall result.
It is also possible that your TRAM breast could be adjusted so that the result is better. If you never went back to have it revised then there is a good chance that improvements could be made. If you would like more information then let me know I can have someone from my office contact you for more information.
