Will i need to keep getting mammograms after breast reconstruction? Is there enough of my own breast tissue left after mastectomy and breast reconstruction to make imaging worthwhile?
Yes and No : If you had a single breast complete mastectomy, no more mammogram on that side.

Any advice? What size breast implant do doctors put in when reconstructing the breast after a mastectomy?
Size to fit: Your plastic surgeon will take measurements of the chest to help determine what size implants to use.
