I'm finally symmetrical!

This past Friday I had one more breast surgery. One size larger implant, and now they match pretty well. there was also some fat grafting to fill in radiation-damaged areas. At last, I don't look weird (in clothes, that is...but the stitches will fade over time).

1. Congratulations! My mother wore a regular bra, one cup padded. I'm glad the reconstruction is

Turning out well!

5. Thanks!

There's still quite a bit of swelling, which should go down over the next few months.
Now the only falsie I have to wear is a wig...chemo was not kind to me in the follicular department.

6. I had one more mini 'improvement.'

Doctor grafted fat above and to the sides of my implant to better match my real breast.
The thing is, he took it from my upper tummy. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!!!! My chest looks better AND I get a slightly flatter belly. I think there might be one more adjustment in my future, but daughter' wedding is coming up (June) and I need to be fitting a dress, so maybe after that.
