I have read that capsular contracture is caused by bacteria. Can bacteria anywhere in your body affect this?

Reconstructive Surgery for PCOS
Breast Reconstruction - 1 week ago2 answers
I have PCOS. My left breast never developed properly, and I have to wear a prosthetic every day to look normal. Is there any way to get help with insurance to cover reconstructive surgery to look normal? I have attempted to get this covered in the past, and my surgeon put it through as a variation of Poland Syndrome thinking that could be the issue. I was initially approved for surgery, but then my insurance denied everything when he asked for approval on specifics on what would be done.

Can I put my nipple rings back in right after surgery?
Breast Augmentation - 2 weeks ago3 answers
My PS said I can put my nipple rings in right after surgery so they will not close. I am getting my incision in the fold under the breast. I have heard some PS say to wait a period of time. I trust my PS and he has a lot of experience, but I am worried about other surgeons that say not to do this. What are your opinions?

If my BWD is 11.5-12 CM, is an implant 12.5 CM in width too big?
Breast Augmentation - 2 weeks ago2 answers
My PS recommends moderate plus for my body type. 355cc is 12 in width but I want to go one size bigger just to assure myself that I am big enough. I know there is not much difference, but everyone says they wish they went bigger. However the 385cc implant is 12.5 in width. Will this be too wide? What issues could I have with this?

What should I do about implant rippling and movement?
Breast Augmentation - 2 weeks ago6 answers
Had my augmentation on 3/27/17 - Mentor 325cc & 350cc silicone under muscle. Two weeks post-op I have rippling and can feel the implant move when I bend forward or move my arm. My surgeon said it's normal because I am so thin. The rippling I can deal with, but feeling the implant move is bothering me. I did everything I was supposed to do eg: not drive, did massage, etc. Is it normal to be able to feel the implant move, and will it get better? Is there anything I can do to minimise it? Thanks.

I am 20 years old and had breast implants put in 7 months ago. The top half of my right areola is puffy. The bottom part is flat and kind of dipped.
Breast Augmentation - 2 weeks ago3 answers
Sometimes it looks normal and other times I look down and it's like the nipple faces downwards because the bottom half of the areola is not puffy. Is this an issue? Is it due to scar tissue?

What implant replacements should I choose for more projection and fullness?
Breast Implant Replacement - 2 weeks ago4 answers
I am 45 years old. 5' 6" 124 lbs. 32 small C. Exchanging 24 yr old saline textured allergen implants-want to go bigger- 455 mod + or 470 HP sientra. My current implants are saline 300 11.9 base 4.1 projection. No drooping at all but too far apart and lost upper pole. I want more projection and fullness. If I do mod plus will different bras change the projection? Is 470 HP 5.1 projection that much different than mod plus 455 4.8? I don't know what I should choose.

Would 550cc/600cc or more be too big ?
Breast Augmentation - 1 month ago7 answers
Hello! I'm 5'4, 140lbs, and currently a size 34 A. I'm very small and slim up top and I have bigger thighs/ butt. I want big boobs and I'm scheduled for the 18 of April. I tried on 425cc but I feel I want to go bigger. I want Amber Rose boobs, like DD, but I don't want to be too big to take away from my butt. Would 550/600cc be way too big for my size, or would it look nice?

Am I picking the right size and the right implant for what I'm looking for? Is the textured implant the best choice?
Breast Augmentation - 1 month ago5 answers
I'm 34 AA, 5'5", 130lbs, 14cm wide. I am considering getting 500cc Sientra gummy bear, textured, high profile implants. I want a nice full look but not fake-looking. Will this amount of cubic centimeters be overkill? I would like to be in a full D-range. No bigger than DD, but I also want to maximize my time by not having to replace my implants due to sagging. I've been told in my pre-op consultation that I have great skin. I am 9.5 from nipple to crease on left side and 8 on right side.

What to expect after switching from 360cc Natrelle mod profile implants to 400cc HP mentor?
Breast Implant Revision - 1 month ago3 answers
I currently do not have a significant upper pole and I have very full lower volume. 360cc Inspira on left and 304 style 15 on right. I'm 5'4 and weigh 128 with pear-shaped body. Implant is too small compared to left. I want upper pole fullness and would like to also gain more symmetry. Will my implants be less wide and project more? When I lay flat, my right one descends toward armpit. Need correction. I want a more narrow looking implant with cleavage and upper pole. I don't want "big breasts."

Can fluid build up in the breast implant pocket and cause extreme tenderness in certain areas of the breast at the end of the day?
Breast Augmentation - 1 month ago6 answers
By the end of the day, I can't touch or massage the bottom part of my right breast because it is so sensitive. It feels like they may swell throughout the day and are retaining fluid because I can feel sloshing. My left breast does the same, but is not sensitive to touch at all.

My new implants are significantly different in size. What should I ask my doctor?
Breast Implant Replacement - 1 month ago3 answers
Prior to surgery I asked my doctor if I could see the type of implants he would be using. He said no. I asked him if he would have several implants available to him during surgery to assist him in choosing the correct size. He said no. He asked me what size cup I wanted. I said "C." I am two weeks post-surgery and my left breast is a "C" and my right breast is a small "B". What should I do or say?

10 days post-op BA I had right breast seroma aspirated. 2 days later, left one swelled.
Breast Augmentation - 1 month ago1 answer
Lab culture clean. No infection. Any idea how to get over this? Could seroma in both breast mean that my body is rejecting implants? Any chances to make recovery? After aspiration, breasts are swelling again. I'm on antibiotics. My implants are microtextured, 245ml, subglandular. Transaxillary approach. I don't smoke and I'm a thin, active 33 year old. Thank you!
