I am getting ready to have bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction with DIEP flap procedure. I was diagnosed with DCIS in my left breast and have elected to remove the right breast to have peace of mind and to avoid ever being in this terrible place of dealing with this ever again.
I have wanted to lose weight for a number of years and have recently lost 25 lbs only to find out that now I need it for my DIEP flap to reconstruct my breasts. I am currently a C cup and would love to be the same or even a little larger if possible. Anyone know how much tissue is needed to do the reconstruction? Anyone else gone through this? Thanks so much for any info or thoughts you might be able to share.
