I still have expanders and drains after bilateral mastectomy 5 weeks ago. Right now I have a complication with the non-cancerous breast that appears consistent with soft tissue infection. Look at your state law. Tennessee state law does not cover reconstruction after lumpectomy, but definitely covers lift/reduction of unaffected breast for symmetry. I have not heard of the within 2 bra size being considered symmetry. My oncologist is male, my reconstruction plastic surgeon is female, and I think we are all of the same page. I would get another opinion if at all possible.
