I had both breasts removed, am I a candidate?

I recently had a bilateral mastectomy and do not want to have implants. I have heard many people can reject having an implant and I am afraid of having them rupture. Is it possible to still achieve the desired cup size even after having radiation therapy?


Yes, patients who have a prophylactic mastectomy will have their best breast reconstruction done with fat grafting and external vacuum expansion.
