When people look at me, will they know I’ve had surgery?

It depends on what type of surgery you have and how important this is to you.

Other people may notice you have had surgery if

  • You have a mastectomy without reconstruction
  • You have scars that are visible when you fully clothed
  • You have scars that are visible when you are naked

People may not notice you have had surgery if

  • You choose to have a reconstruction procedure following a mastectomy
  • Your scars are hidden when you are fully clothed
  • Your scars are hidden when you are naked
