Axillary Node Clearance by Surgery or Radiotherapy?

After a positive SNB I have been advised to have ANC before final radiotherapy. However, I probably have the choice of it being done by surgery or radiotherapy. I have an implant so already have a risk of getting a capsular contracture. Anyone know if more radiotherapy would increase the risk of that?
