TT after mini-TT with float
Choices now are full TT or reverse TT. Each has pros and cons.
The con for a reverse TT is the scar under the breasts and crossing the midline, and this can be hard to hide in a swimsuit. The other is that if there is still some laxity below the navel, this will not be addressed.
The con for a full TT is that the natural blood supply to the navel is gone, and there is a chance that an incision around the navel will jeopardize its vascular supply.
An inperson discussion with a plastic surgeon will help sort out the options.
All the best.
