I had a BMX with Goldilocks Reconstruction in 2016. The results look absolutely terrible. I lost a lot of skin to necrosis, so the scarring is pretty bad. Parts of my chest feel like the skin is adhered to the chest wall. Other parts are soft, folded, and moveable.
I plan to have DIEP recon in the future ,but I have been by two Plastic Surgeons that delayed DIEP doesn't look good. Of course, these surgeons do not prefer to do DIEPs at all. So, now I'm not sure what to think.
It's been a year. Can DIEP be done now, or even a year from now? And could I expect to have a decent result?
