I had an augmentation in 1987, taking my breast size from an A cup to a full B cup. After children and weight gain, I am currently a C cup, and I'm scheduled for a bilateral prophylactic mastectomy with Dr. Sullivan in February. I consulted with a surgeon in NJ, indicating that I'd like to spare skin and nipples. She indicated that she could spare both, but any type of lift was impossible, because of my prior surgery.
My reconstruction options were to use back muscles or a undergo a diep that would yield A-sized breasts. My dissatisfaction led me to you.
What kind of restrictions does prior augmentation with implants present to reconstructive surgeons?
Thanks for your time,
