Maybe: It is best to wait to do surgery on the breasts until they have stopped growing/developing. If that is the case, then surgery can be done to lift the breasts. This is commonly done for young patients with what is called "tuberous" breasts.

Lots of options: Basically there are 2 options for breast reconstruction after tumor resection. Option #1 is to move some of the patient's own tissue from another site to the breast. This is a great option, but not for everyone, as the surgery can be long and complicated. Option #2 is to use a breast implant to replace the missing breast tissue. Best to discuss with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Many options: If the scar is fresh, you can try silicone gel, vitamin e, scar massage. If the scar is mature, the best options are scar revision or skin re-surfacing depending on the particulars of the scar.
