looked flat after postop...was disappointed because i felt after all i went through you couldnt see them
dr was great, but you must realize to go bigger for radical mastectomies, because you loose half your implant in chest cavity. ive since gone bigger to 800 ccs...yes i am 6 feet tall, and 175 lbs. look thin, but am large boned. my bra size is 36 c, with 800s. yes, hard to believe. do know this, man made nipples need to be done twice, they disappear, and areolas fade to nothing. get darker than you would want . that is very painful, having the tattoos done, worse part for me. use cold frozen packs wrapped in towel, feels great. i just dont know at this point if a tram-flap would have been a better choice. every 10 years now, i have to wonder if its time for replacement, they weaken and can rupture from 10 years on, despite what you will hear. than it all starts again. money too. insurance paid most, but do they keep paying. my surgery was 2008. today my left side (cancer side) has capsular contracture. its livable , but dont know if it plateaued .they are hard, dont bounce at all and just look nice in clothes. scars are on sides and thats because of cancer, you dont have a choice of cut. but, it sure beats no breasts at all, and that really is the here for your PS. he/she wants to make you appear "normal" not picture perfect. thats not reality. good luck.
