I had diep on one breast about a year ago and had my other breast lifted 3 months ago. How long did you all wait before you had a mammo on the lifted breast?

I didn't have your experience, but I would think you need to ask your ps that question. It would definitely need to be fully healed, otherwise you wouldn't be able to stand it being squished during the mammo. Also... you wouldn't want to do any damage... mammos are pretty rough on a normal breast, let alone one that has an incision.

I had a mammo last month on my lift side, the lift was done end of November, so it was about 6 months. I never asked the ps about it, it was fully healed by then.

Had a lift/augment in November and had a mammogram in April. I did OK it with my PS first. Best wishes!
