I have had two failed reconstructions and am at my last resort. I am in excellent health and ready to feel whole again so I can move on with my life.

So, if you are a doctor who can help me get this done, I am eager to hear from you. Thank you!

I am very bothered that you are having issues getting reconstructed.  I don't know where is NC you are but please look for breast reconstruction surgeons who perform DIEP flap reconstruction and they definitely will be able to manage this situation for you.

A latissimus flap that will replace the missing soft tissue can easily hide a small implant and look great. An opposite lift can provide balance as well if needed. Most patients can go home in 1-2 days from the hospital and receive office followup for  2-3 weeks. This is needed to minimize healing problems
