Am just wondering if anyone knows how long after a mastectomy you'd have to wait for a large tattoo to be done to cover the scar. Am thinking 9-12 months after treatment but wondered if anyone has had this done. TIA

    I would think you need to talk with your doctor(s) regarding a time-frame. I had a unilateral mastectomy 4+ years ago and my scar has never really been noticeable.

    I am 5 years out with no scar- I used lotion all the time and no scars!
