I had breast implants after a double mastectomy, chemo, and radiation. I have not had any problems with them in the almost 2 years that I have had them. My left side which is the one that had radiation is not as soft and sits a little higher, but otherwise, I am happy with the results. Take care.

Has anyone had a successful breast implant after a lumpectomy and radiation? I'm considering one but am hearing alot of horror stories about infection or implant rejection...TIA

I also had breast implants after a double mastectomy in August 2014 and I have had no problems at all and am very pleased with the outcome. I did not have chemo or radiation so that might make a difference. I also had the 3D nipple tattoos and best part of it is I don't have to wear a bra. Best of luck to you. Choose the best plastic surgeon you can find and get a second opinion.
