The plastic surgeon I went to has done 150-200 of these procedures. He was also a professor at USC teaching plastic surgery. Does that sound like a good amount of procedures to be REALLY experienced? My insurance approved the first procedure, which is to clamp a vessel in the abdomin so that the other side of the vessel will enlarge, allowing better reattachment at the time of the actually Tram flap procedure. I haven't scheduled anything yet, though.
