Immediate Implant Only Reconstruction

Hi, I think this is probably the type I will be having but just wanted to hear other people’s experience of this please. I’m having a bilateral mastectomy. I’d also like to know what size you were before and after if thats ok?

Many thanks

Hi,

I had a bilateral mastectomy as a risk reducing measure on August 4th. Before had I was a 34D and I’m now pretty much the same but wear a variety of different sizes depending on the shop (DD or E…always bigger).

I had tissue expanders and when these settle I will be having the permanent implants. I dont know if your situation is the same but my surgeons were very keen on me going back to what I was before.

There is a risk that your muscle wont stretch to bigger than you were… but it is possible. I don’t know if this helps!
