Gastroenterologist, Surgical 's  Response
well, let me tell you that there are two types of mainly prosthesis ( the breast implant)
1. external ( to be wear outside on your body)
2. internal ( within the skin) that needs a surgery
but i would recommend the prior..that is external for two reason
1. follow up check of recurrence of tumor is easy without any prothesis.
2. chances of prothesis tear and infection is very high then actually documented

need further help lemme knoww

If you have had mastectomy, you need to have follow up examination of the area at least once a year. hence, instead of further surgery, best thing is to use cosmetic
external device which gives fairly good cosmetic effect, is non irritating and less expensive. You can get this device in any good medical stores. Thank you

Thanks for query,
You may go for breast implant surgery.
It has no side effects after long duration some leakage of material problem may be there,but it depend upon which type of implant you are going for.
You consult cosmetic surgeon and ask for detail and cost of surgery.
ok and bye.
