I am to undergo reconstruction due to a Mastectomy on my left breast. I am having an expander put in which apparently gets filled over a period of a couple of weeks-then implants a few weeks later. When the implant surgery is done-they will also put an implant in my natural breast to even it all up. My question is, if you've been through this. A: was it painful? and B: is the end result worth it-are the breasts even and aesthetically pleasing? I care more about whether they are going to look alright and even-simply because my surgeon did a fabulous job of the mastectomy, and my scar is minimal, I have been living with this, not exactly liking it, but being satisfied that it is not too grotesque. I am terrified after surgery my breasts will be ugly and uneven?
