Abstract

Aim of the study: Postmastectomy reconstructive surgery for cosmetic satisfaction of patients is rapidly increasing. Postoperative complications such as infection, capsular contracture, implant loss are more common in patients who receive adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) than those who do not. Satisfaction levels in patients is still a controversial issue. Therefore, we wanted to investigate our patient population for the effects of RT and planned a study evaluating the satisfaction rates of our patients who received implants.
