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.

Agree

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
