Implant vs Flap Breast Reconstruction. Having a Hard Time Deciding; Any Advice?
I am having a bi-lateral mastectomy soon and researching reconstruction. I've seen 2 doctors: one who performs direct 1-step implants w/alloderm; the other performs flap operations and recommends a combo hip flap w/implant. I'd like to increase in size by about a cup (from small b to small c). I am 5'6" and approx 125 lbs. I'm having a hard time deciding, as the implants look good at first, but seem to have potential future issues. The flap looks decent but recovery is harsh/lengthy. Any advice?
