In brief: Not usually

The breast is a very forgiving organ with respect to post surgical changes provided that your surgeon follows a few simple rules.
The tumor does not belong in your breast, therefore you should not have a loss of normal breast tissue. Scars can be hidden around the edge of the areola or under the breast. Please address this with your surgeon before surgery.
