DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction
I had a bilateral mastectomy last September. At that time, I was planning to have implants inserted after I healed. But then I developed an infection in one breast, and my tissue expanders had to be removed. Unfortunately, the infection destroyed some of the fat tissue, and so some of my breast skin is now very thin. As a result, it is not clear if implants would work well.
Given all this, I am now looking into flap surgery using my own tissue to reconstruct my breasts. I am very interested in connecting with women who have been through this procedure. I am also wondering if anyone knows about the best centers/surgeons to get this surgery done. Thank you!
