My husband and i had a long chat about this. i was all for natural - ie a back or tummy, but I also like simple ie one wound for the mastectomy and the implant - less invasive as others have said. In a real spin - especially as I was told that implants only last 10-20 years. My husband wanted it all simple too - one wound in.
In the end have gone for the implant - and am pleased. The operation is complicated enough and emotions are all over the place. A friend has had an LD, but did not have "enough" muscle so has had an implant too.
I think so long as the decision is yours - with the help of your consultant then you will be happier. Nothing is as it was - that is what i am having to come to terms with
Hiya, I've also had strattice and so far so good...didn't want LD cos it'd have affected yet another part of my body besides my arm and my chest. I really empathise with your wish to be as 'natural' as possible though. These choices aren't easy are they? P x
