Hi Shady, as in my PM to you, I really don't think that nipple reconstruction would interfere if you wanted to change your size - but I'm NOT SURE. It just seems logical to me that nipple reconstruction is done on/with the outter layer of the skin, wheras an implant is deeper under the breast tissue. Did you have any breast tissue left after your surgery?

Also, CC can be corrected - even on us reconstruction gals!

Ask your PS about the changing size and nipple construction.

I still think you look freeking AMAZING!
