Breast Reconstruction (Implant) - Jbro

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Invasive (Infiltrating) Ductal Carcinoma . Posted on December 11, 2013 View this journey (5 Experiences)

Originally going to have lumpectomy with radiation. Second tumor found in MRI meant mastectomy necessary. After talking to PS about reconstruction and the surgery required on the non-cancerous breast to make it "match" decided on bi-lateral mastectomy. Reduce the risk for recurrence and definite aesthetic benefits. Immediate reconstruction with tissue expanders/implants followed by nipple reconstruction surgery and finally tattoos.
