Planned radiation following mastectomy for treatment

There remains the question of immediate reconstruction (at the same time of the mastectomy, and at the same surgery) versus delayed reconstruction (breast reconstruction performed after the mastectomy, which can be weeks to months following the initial mastecotmy)… This is an important discussion, as there are different viewpoints regarding the approaches… and a personal decision that is important to understand fully – initial tissue expander placement followed by subsequent staged “final” reconstruction versus no reconstruction and so on… be sure to ask what the differences may be, what the incisions may look like after reconstruction, and what their opinion is regarding implant reconstruction in the setting of radiation….
