Breast problems after radiation
I do no have all the info. to give an informed answer, however, it is very common to have scar tissue or capsular contracture form around a breast implant that is placed in a radiated area. Sometimes fat injections may improve the dent or a flap procedure may be needed in more severe cases. Discuss you problems with an experienced breast reconstructive surgeon.
