Mastectomy and bilateral reconstruction

I had a mastectomy last summer. I am 40 years old and it was as a result of new tumours in the same breast. I am planning to have a risk reducing mastectomy and bilateral reconstruction in the next couple of months as a ld flap with implants.anyone had a similar experience and any tips?
