Bilateral prophylactic mastectomy
You have to be more specific about the procedure you are having. A bilateral prophylactic mastectomy for what? Cancer? and you have a capuslar contracture with implants? Is the surgery for failed cosmetic procedures? What type of reconstructiona re you having. If free flaps it takes a few weeks to recover, if tissue expanders it may take a week or two. There are so many things that could be discussed.
