Options for Breast Reconstruction After an Infection?
I had a bilateral mastectomy done, and I had breast implants placed in both breast. I had expanders put in, and had radiation along with a boost.
This past January, the implants where put in. Then in April of this year, right breast got an infection. The infection tore a large whole in my breast, so my plastic surgeon removed the implant in my left breast. I don't have much skin there because it was removed.
My reconstructive surgeon suggested that I get a TUG Flap. I am very concerned about this having this procedure done because I know that it is not performed much and is new. Do you have any suggestions?
