Question from Mebert: I had GAP reconstruction five and one-half months ago and was devastated to discover that the graft was much higher up than my real breast. I feel like I have a baseball hanging off of my clavicle. Does this happen commonly, and can it be brought down? My real breast is exactly where I want it to be, I don't want it lifted, I want the graft brought down to match it.
