This week, James E. Craigie, MD, of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your question.
Question: I had a double mastectomy in 2008 and now wish I had had implants…is it too late?
Answer: Yes, you can have breast reconstruction 8 years after your mastectomies. I have patients who have waited 22 years. Also its up to you and your plastic surgeon which technique is best for you. That includes implants. Thank you for you question!
