Do I Have to Have Another Surgery to Remove Necrotic Skin or Will my Body Heal Itself?
Four weeks ago I underwent a skin sparing mastectomy with tissue expanders. Four weeks later following my surgeon filled the expanders up 300 ml, then performed one fill of 300ml . The next day the left breast had blistered. 65 percent of the breast has turned black. My MD advises that surgery is necessary to remove the necrotic skin and remove the expander. Do I have to have this surgery? Did my surgeon overfill the expander with 300cc of saline? My tram flap is scheduled for May 17.
