Hello Alyson, After waiting a year after surgery and radiotherapy I had decided on an implant but then my surgeon told me I couldn't have one as there is now no skin in which to put it, if you see what I mean. He said the radiotherapy meant that it was not possible to stretch the skin to accommodate an implant. So the only choice would be a diep flap, which I'm 'happy' to go ahead with. So I don't know if you can have a skin graft or something but it wasn't an option offered to me. Good luck with it whatever you decide on!
