Women could choose to have saline or silicone implants, use her own tissue flap, or a combination of the two.

The TRAM flap is the process of taking tissue and muscle from the abdominal area, and reconnecting it to form a breast shape. While the TRAM flap does offer women the opportunity to resume a natural look and feel, it does have drawbacks.
