Breastlight Usage for Breast Cancer patients:
If you had a lumpectomy, you will be able to see the rest of your breast normally with Breast light but there may be a congealing area over your scar tissue. This may mean an increased supply of blood capillaries to the scar area which could look darker with Breastlight.
The same way if you had a partial removal of your breast, you can still use Breast light on the remaining tissue.
If you had your breast removed and reconstructed, you will not be able to use Breast light, as it only works on breast tissue.
A total mastectomy will remove all the breast tissue reconstruction uses grafts and skin graft tissue.
