Had expanders put in during mastectomy. Nice to wake up and not be completely flat chested. Went in weekly for injections of saline to expand and to stretch the skin and muscle. Not a pleasant experience at all. Very tight and uncomfortable

Went as Expected: Agree
Minimal Recovery: Agree
Minimal Side Effects: Agree
