Radiation is a therapy that patients will receive post-lumpectomy. After the oncoplastic reconstruction of the lumpectomy defect, patients will have tattoos or stickers placed to help guide the radiation beam. Radiation therapy typically occurs 6 weeks post lumpectomy. It is important for patients to eat a high protein diet post surgery to facilitate wound healing prior to initiating radiation therapy.
