Mastectomy or Lumpectomy and Breast Implants for ADH?
I have ADH and thinking of getting a Nipple Sparing Mastectomy (NSM), but my doctor wants to do a Lattisimus Dorsi Flap (LDF) with tissue expanders and then have a second surgery for silicone breast implants. I have breast implants that are over the muscle right now and my lesion is right against my chest wall. I don't know if I should do a lumpectomy and new breast implants, or NSM with Alloderm instead of the LDF because I really don't want my back muscle removed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
