The pro side the double mastectomy was done to prevent me from getting breast cancer. The con side was it was a long recovery and the appearance of the surgery did not turn out as anticipated.A little over a year ago I had a tummy tuck after the tissue was used for breast reconstruction after a double mastectomy. The top part of the abdomin started bulging, it also gets very hard and is unconfortable. I thought it was just a part of the healing process but it seems to be getting worse as time goes on. Is there anything the plastic surgeon can do to fix this? I just need to be an informed patient as I will be seeing him soon. thank you for your response
