Would you recommend doing both sides - to achieve symmetry - if I go with a TRAM Flap? I don't particularly want to mess with a good thing on the one side that worked, but I don't want them to look so different that I continue not to want to look in the mirror. So can a TRAM flap achieve a result that looks similar to an implant on the other side? (BTW, this was elective as I am BRCA 1. I don't regret it, but I was certainly too cavalier about it as it has been a poor result and I have never been as self-conscious as I am today about my breasts).

If you are happy with the one side, then only have the encapsulated side operated upon. Please remember that no 2 breasts are identical without clothing. You may want to try a submuscular saline implant before a Tram flap but you should discuss the options with your surgeon.
