Ok for me in 2002 it was a lumpectomy without clean margins so I had to have a mastectomy. Many times with recon either flap or implant it will require a touch up. Sometimes one mastectomy with an implant or flap and the opposite side gets a lift. Mastectomy with immediate expander requires a second surgery to put in the implant.
Many reasons for two surgeries.
