Tissue Expanders As "Bookmarks" for Autologous Delayed Reconstruction?
DCIS right breast and looking at mastectomy with a tissue expander placement for delayed autologous (IGAP or TUG) 4 months after mastectomy. Is this common? Will it also be placed under the muscle? Won't that stretch out the muscle and create problems with the autologous reconstruction? Am VERY worried ... Oh, and adamantly opposed to implants.
