I had a lumpectomy followed by a bi lateral mastectomy a week later. I chose to remove the other one as a preventative. I thought about not having a reconstruction. I stayed flat for 6 months and liked it more than I thought I would. I ended up choosing DIEP flap. The best part of it was the tummy tuck. I was a double D before and I'm a C now (feels really big after being flat). A big part of me wished I had stayed flat. No bra nice, but clothes fall to the chest unless your stomach is completely flat. If anything ever comes back I will most likely remove everything and leave it flat. Best of luck to you!
