small boobs for me

My friend M came with me to meet with Dr. D. Long wait, but he was very nice. I could do the fancy surgery where they take the extra skin and fat from your lower belly and turn it into breast, but not at this hospital and not until July. and it’s a 16-18 hour surgery. So thank you, but no thank you. (I came so close to getting a flat tummy!)
Instead we will do the traditional full mastectomy with 2 stage reconstruction. I will get tissue-extenders put in during the mastectomy, and they will get slowly filled (I think he said weekly) until the skin stretches to the right size. Then you go back to have those removes and standard saline implants put in. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have breast implants.
