Can Breast Reconstruction Be Done with the Implant on Top of the Pectoral Muscle?
I am facing a right mastectomy with reconstruction. I am small busted, A cup or smaller. I am not interested in being larger at all. Can I choose to have the implant placed on top of my pectoral muscle, similar to regular augmentation? I have read about "bottoming out" but I do not want a big or heavy implant. Will my skin be able to hold this up. I am hoping I qualify for a skin sparing mastectomy. I have DCIS and will not need chemo or radiation.
