Implants after radiation or go flat
I am about to have UMx soon. I met with my plastic surgeon. Once my PS heard that I need radiation, he started to talk me out of implants. I have small breasts to begin with, so if I do implant, I will need to augment the other side too. My PS worries that if I have capsular contracture - then I will end up with asymmetry implants and discomfort, not to mention all the operations. According to him, my better option will be go flat or DIEP. I don't think I will do DIEP - feel it is a lot of work to reconstruct a small breast.
I need to make the decision if I put TE in with mx. My BS suggested me put TE in anyways to keep my options open in case I still want implants. My PS however said that if I put a TE in now, I wont know how "go flat" will look like. Anybody with similar experience? Or do you have suggestions on how should I make decision?
