Breast Reconstruction: Q&AAsk a Question
Is a 32A to a 32C/D Unreasonable for a Bilateral Mastectomy Patient?
I am 5'3, 98 pounds, large 32A. Finishing chemo in 1mo and am debating radiation vs. bilateral mast. I have had a consult with a PS who highly discouraged going from a 32A to a large 32C (which I would like, why not). He said at max he would recommend 400cc's which would bring me to a large B. Going to a large 32C would bring more complications? Im concerned about rippling bc i'm thin. The PS also said silicone implants, in his hands, had higher rates of cap. contracture. thoughts? Thank you!
