Breast reduction/lift AFTER radiation? Any experience?

1982m Member Posts: 224

I was scheduled to have a breast reduction before cancer but breast surgeon said they cannot preform the reduction in co-ordination with my cancer treatments. I won’t get the reduction prior to radiation. I’ve already had the lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy.

I know it’s better to have oncoplastic reduction prior to radiation, but will it be possible or reasonableafter radiation? Anyone had a reduction or a lift after radiation? I’d love to hear more about the experience- good or bad.

Thank you in advance!
