It really depends on what type of surgery you are looking for, see a local board certified surgeon to discuss all the risks and possible complications that are unique to your anatomy and situation

Breast surgery after breast reconstruction

There are absolutely special care concerns when considering breast surgery following breast reconstruction for breast cancer. These relate to the tissues remaining, the condition of the tissue (thickness), history of radiation, co-morbid diseases, scars, residual muscle, etc.
