Double flat notes
I was first diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine scan, I had stage one ductal carcinoma and DCIS. I had a left mastectomy and was offered reconstruction, but I declined, I then went on to have the right breast removed, as a prophylactic surgery. I knew from day one that I didn’t want reconstruction and wanted to remain flat. Being a professional saxophonist I found it actually helped having no breasts in terms of holding the sax more comfortably, plus keeping fit is easier too without breasts!
As a musician I am performing and in the public eye; I’ve always been confident in having no breasts. I don’t wear prosthesis or try and cover up in any way. I know being flat isn’t for everyone but for me it was the perfect option.
