Feeling cold after implant-based breast reconstruction
It's not uncommon to feel cold after implant-based breast reconstruction. The implants can act as a heat sink, and on the chest this can be particularly noticeable. The anatomic "gummy bear" implants may cause this phenomenon more than the round silicone type. Speak with your surgeon about what you're experiencing.
Best of luck,
