In brief: Reconstruction?

It really depends on what kind of reconstruction you decide upon.
The double mastectomy usually involves a 1 night hospital stay if no reconstruction is utilized. However, if a reconstruction is done using flaps, then you will probably be in the hosptial a few days to make sure everything is healing properly.
