TT and Prophylactic Mastectomy ever done??

Getting genetic testing done & I want to do a TT this coming Fall. IF the testing finds that breast cancer is a possibility in my future (5th generation of 4 generations that had breast or ovarian cancer but no BRCA gene), I'd like to get the mastectomy done when the TT was done. I mean, why be in pain twice, right?? For those who don't know, a prophylactic mastectomy is essentially when they scoop out your inner breast tissue but leave the nipple & skin (though I WOULD like a lift!) & then add an implant for reconstruction. I'm posting here because a Mommy Makeover is both breast & tummy which is basically what I'd be doing. If you think another forum might have more info please share, I just want to know if this is even a possibility.
