Dr. D, just wondering when you perform SGAP for bilateral mastectomy patients that have had implants after tissue expansion (hx radiation unilaterally), is this done all in one procedure or do you perform in 2 separate procedures? The PS I have seen says SGAP needs to be done in 2 separate operations spaced a few months apart. Such a long recovery to have to do twice. Also how many surgeries total after initial SGAP, ie revisions and such to get to end result? Thinking about work and time off and such. Thanks so much in advance for your time!
