I'm 46 years old and going through perimenopause. I have irregular periods and water retention. My breasts always feel swollen; not soreā€”just enlarged. Is this due to water retention and lack of progesterone? Besides using progesterone cream, is there a natural way to help with this breast enlargement?

I have had a mastectomy and want to have reconstructive breast surgery soon. I've heard about a new procedure called the DIEP flap and want to know if it would be a good option for me.
