In brief: Rarely

Breast cancer surgeons have learned a lot from our plastic surgery colleagues and now try to apply many of the same principles that they follow with breast surgery so that we can, first and foremost, remove what we need to, but do so with minimal aesthetic changes.
Of course, the size of the tumor relative to the breast and it's location will have an effect, but most patients have minimal changes.

In brief: If large

If the lump is large, the breast can heal with a dimple.
It is not always the case however especially when the lump removed is small and the breast tissue that remains is large. :).
