Single Mastectomy – Direct to implant 5.5 – Empowered Mastectomy

I had a single mastectomy in February of 2020. I live in Ireland and getting a double mastectomy would only really happen if you had a genetic mutation, which I don’t. I ended up having the other side done 1.5 years later though.

My mum died from breast cancer and I felt like I wanted to get the other side done. My surgeon agreed to it, but COVID delayed getting it done.

I had my second single mastectomy on the other side in the Summer of 2021.
