Re: Mastectomy reconstruction

Hi Angelo!
What a decision to have to make!!!😬
I had tissue expanders followed by silocen implants 2 years ago. I had a failed implant last July and had to,have a smaller one inserted! This left me lop sided and very tight!😬 I was treated in Cyprus. Now spend more time in the UK and am on waiting list to have it all u done! I have been offered a bi lateral DIEP which I am very scared about. My other alternative is to have the implants removed- which I have been told won't last- and have a flat chest wall!
I would discuss your options with the nurse before making your final decision!
Good luck with whatever you chose!

Hi Jo,

 

i'm 3 months post surgery - LD flap and smallish implant. Everything has healed up amazingly well. Scars fading. New boob is good size and shape match for my remaining breast. Life went back to normal very quickly after the op. .happy to answer any questions you may have if it helps.

Mastectomy reconstruction

Hi all I've got my op on the 31 st October just need to decide which procedure I'm seeing the nurse Monday to see pictures and decuss more . It's between back flap with implant or back flap then later stage have lipo suction to my tummy , which she thinks would take two goes to match the other breast . I I'm thinking more to the lipo suction but wanted to see what others lady's had . Thanks very anxious and not really sleeping at the moment 😬. Jo
