Reconstruction questions


I’m under the care of a Manchester hospital and I’m going to be having a double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction as. I need to decide I think between implants or abdominal diep flap. 

Could anyone with experience of breast surgery at this hospital please DM me with information about surgeons please?  I understand if I go for the latter option it would be a plastic surgeon rather that a surgeon from the breast unit.

Thanks in advance. 

Hi Poppyfields,

Thanks for posting on the Forum.

I just wanted to let you know that I’ve taken the exact name of the hospital out of your post because we tend not to recommend sharing identifiable details about treatment locations on an open platform. I’ve left it as ‘Manchester’ so you may still get someone at the same hospital replying. 

Take care, 

Becca at Breast Cancer Care.
