Unilateral mastectomy and reduction
Hi - I’m newly diagnosed and after meeting with my surgical oncologist, I had pretty much decided on a unilateral mastectomy with implant and with a reduction on my left side. I met with the plastic surgeon yesterday and he explained that I would need to go the expander route, but he also said the reduction on the other breast wouldn’t take place until 4-6 months later when the implant was placed.
I’m really upset with the prospect of having two breasts that are very different sizes for that time. I’m currently a DDD and would like to go to C, which the PS agreed with.
Has anyone of a similar size gone through this gap and would be able to talk to me about their experience?
