Depending on whether you need a bilateral or unilateral operation, mastectomy surgery can take one to three hours. Being an invasive operation, the mastectomy recovery process can be uncomfortable and lengthy. When weighing up your choices, make sure you research what’s involved and the mastectomy risks involved with each type of procedure.
