Reconstruction using implant vs own tissue

I was diagnosed with high grade DCIS 4 days ago. I have been advised to have a mastectomy as there is a 6cm area that needs to be removed, and I only have small breasts. I am discussing options with my surgeon in 2 days time and was hoping to get some feedback from others on what has worked well for them. Would be very grateful for any advice to help me make this decision xx


Sorry to hear your diagnosis and proposed treatment.

I’ve had the initial meeting with Surgeons (Breast and Plastic). It was very informative. They have listened to me, and assessed my body. I am due to see them again shortly to agree the best option. 

Perhaps after your meeting you’ll have questions on reconstruction that others will be able to share their experiences?

Good luck with your meeting.

Best wishes, Karen
