Radiation and expanders then implants
Hello ladies! I don’t even know if this is the place i should be!
I’m trying to kind of find out some stats on something.
So here it goes
I will be having radiation on expanders that are under the muscle. My plastic surgeon said we will overfill and max out the expanders so that radiation won’t shrink that side so much.
My question is for those of you that had radiation on expanders, did you have to have extra surgery to make up for the difference in the radiated side versus non radiation side? In other words is there anyone that has expanders, went to implants after radiation and did NOT need any subsequent surgery to repair damage the radiation caused?
Thank you guys for helping me. And if you think I should put this question somewhere else let me know.
