      Your plastic surgeon would be the one to discuss this with. There is more than one type of reconstruction.....saline or silicone implant and DIEP flap. I am surprised this wasn’t discussed with you prior to your mastectomy. Talk with your plastic surgeon about these options. Good luck with your reconstruction.
