Submitted by Q-A from clee on Fri, 05/13/2011 - 14:51

I had a breast augmentation 21 days ago and my surgeon now says that my breast tissue is falling over my implants and the correction is a breast lift.As this problem is due to my original surgeon not providing the proper treatment,I am beginning a search for a new surgeon for the revision.

I am willing to travel on the eastern coast of the US or between Montreal and Toronto in Canada for the most experienced surgeon.I need an idea of cost and experience with this kind of deformity that you have.

A: I am sorry you have had this poor experience.

I am sorry you have had this poor experience. In Montreal we have wonderful Plastic Surgeons. Perhaps you should start your search for a reputable plastic surgeon by way of plastic surgery societies in Quebec, Canada, and US.

Q: Muscle Detached from Sternum From Breast Augmentation - Will It Get Worse over Time?

Submitted by Q-A from clee on Fri, 05/13/2011 - 12:26

Muscle detached from sternum (right side) from ba -Implant slightly bottomed out medially & inferiorly -I have saline (325 filled to 390) - Starting to notice rippling in my right cleavage where my muscle got separated.

I'm thin and worried that the 'exposed' implant in my right cleavage is going to show more rippling with time. Should I wait & see how bad it gets or should I get a revision now? Is it harder to fix if it gets worse? Results are fantastic but worried.


A: Enjoy your results

Your results are good. At present, it is not really a good idea to address relatively minor concerns.

Q: My right breast never dropped and now my PS is telling me that he has to re-operate

Submitted by Q-A from clee on Thu, 05/12/2011 - 08:14

BA performed 1 month ago. The next day my bandages were removed, and my right breast was significantly higher than my left. The doctor assured me that it would drop after the muscle relaxed. I'm 5 weeks PO and it's in same exact place. Stitches were removed 10 days PO and he showed me on how to do my daily massaging, which I did religiously. I also wore the strap 24/7. I had a checkup last Friday & he says that he has to re-operate. I don't think that he made the pocket big enough. Opinions welcomed!

A: It can be a challenge to make a diagnosis by photo

You did a great job posting photos demonstrating the asymmetry following your surgery. Unfortunately, there are many potential causes for this problem. The incomplete list of problems include acute fluid collection (seroma, hematoma), asymmetry before surgery, technical aspects such as inadequate pocket dissection, malrotation of shaped implants, etc... Your definitive diagnosis will necessitate at least one other examination by an experienced plastic surgeon. Within my stated partial list of problems, only the acute collection of fluid necessitates early semi-urgent attention. Otherwise you will have the luxury of time to clarify the cause and decide on the best treatment plan for your situation. So do not rush into a plan of action. Best of luck.
