BRCA2 reconstruction - TUG flap?

Hi everyone

I’ve decided to have a preventative double mastectomy with reconstruction, which I assumed would be with implants as I don’t have too much spare stuff hanging around.

Saw one of the consultants yesterday to say yes, let’s go ahead, and he suggested I’m suitable for a TUG flap.

I’ve been doing a bit of research but patient stories for this type of construction are a bit think on the ground, can anyone share their experience, either here or privately?

thanks in advance
