Hi everyone.......just wondering if anyone has gone through this procedure. Radiation has caused the breast tissue to harden and it has caused the flap to die. I had conserving surgery done. I'm having the lippofill surgery in June and then another surgery 6mths later.
If anyone has had this procedure done, were you happy with it?

    Hi Ange161
    I had lipo done on my radiated side and found it fantastic. I’ve not been able to have any reconstruction but had a large dip between 2 of my ribs. I was really self conscious about it as it was always obvious especially if I was wearing dresses or t.shirts. The lipo not only filled the dip nicely but it also soften the scarring of the whole area and has built it up a little. I’m planning to have more in the coming months just to even out some other problem areas. I had no real,pain to speak of and was not out of action for more than a couple of days. I hope you have a similar outcome with your procedure and please feel free to message me if you would like to ask any other questions.
    Good Luck

    Thank you Polly Rose for your feed back. I feel a bit better about the procedure now. I'm having the fat taken from my abdomen and my Dr said I will be very bruised. The radiation sure does knock the tissue around. I am having a lot of discomfort in the breast with the hardening of the I feel better with you saying that your scarring. Thank you again  :) <3
