    Reconstruction: DIEP flap or implants

    I'm about to have a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction at the same time. My ps says I'm a good candidate for the DIEP flap procedure but I am also considering just getting implants. Can anyone share their experiences with either one? Pros and cons?
    Thanks
