If you had an S-Gap operation, please let me know if you had any complications, difficulty when sitting, pain, numbness or difficulty walking. What doctors performed the surgery and what insurance did you have? Did it cover the surgery?

    S-GAP is when a tissue transfer goes from your butt to your breast and only tissue and fat is transferred not muscle. There is some risk that the flap (tissue transfer) can fail. It is a long operation, and it is easier, I believe to take it off the stomach, because the surgeon does not have to flip you back and forth.
