We aimed to evaluate the cosmetic results of radiotherapy in 170 breast cancer patients after implant-based reconstruction. Cosmetic results were excellent or fair in most patients after radiotherapy. However, bolus use, lymphatic irradiation, and the volume receiving at least 110% of the prescribed dose being >1% significantly deteriorated the outcomes.
