Why doesn't my surgeon have knowledge of this information?
I previously had 450cc saline replaced with 415cc cohesive gel. My surgeon said this was an equivalent size. I feel much smaller and not as full. I decided to do my own research. Natrelle states that when you exchange from saline to gel you should increase by 25cc or 7-10% by other websites.

Are there any issues I can expect during pregnancy/breastfeeding, since I am doing my surgery prior to having kids?
I expect to start trying in about a year but would like my surgery now. What complications can I expect? Will I need to re-do them again after babies? Will there be a definite sag after breastfeeding? Or will the implant help against it?

I recently replaced my saline implants of 450cc. Was the sizing incorrect?
My surgeon replaced them with gel implants at 415 cc. He said these were equivalent to a 450cc saline. I’m 6 months post op they seem smaller. There was extra tisssue so he did a small mastoplexy because I was unsatisfied. I’m not happy about the size. I’ve read that with gel implants you should increase your cc. I didn’t know this before and did not agree to a 415cc gel. I told him I didn’t want to be smaller. Was the sizing incorrect?

Why aren't my incision healing after having 4 separate surgeries, to fix the issue?
Where he took my tape off there was another, long wide black incision, with a very painful knot. There was also a strange odor coming from the incision. The last one in December had fluid pouring out. It had a yellow and green color with an oily and bloody fluid. He didn't swab it. I don't know what to do anymore. It's so frustrating and all of these surgeries are also making me feel extremely sick afterward.

Is there a surgery to repair East and West pointing nipples?
I had a saline BA 8 years ago. 350 cc and recently went in to have a consult to remove and replace to go bigger. All these years I never realized I had East and West pointing nipples until now. He said there's nothing he can do that will give me cleavage or asymmetry. I want them bigger and want cleavage but nipples have slopes in them and point outward.

My Mentor implants are too high 5 months post op. Can they still drop more?
I am 5 months post op from transaxillary BA with 400cc Mentor silicone. Overall I am satisfied, but my one concern is that my breasts still have a lot of upper pole fullness and don’t have that natural slope. Is this because I went transaxillary or possibly due to my anatomy? My surgeon says I had a smaller gap from nipple to clavicle pre op. Can they still drop more? Overall they are on the softer side and movable, not too firm.

Will my areola ever look normal again?
Breast Lift - 2 answers
Hi, I am 4 weeks post op and I still have a purplish ring around my areola. My surgeon has seen it but I didn't think to ask at the time as I thought it was perhaps pen marks. What could it be and will it fade? Also, although my nipple hardens when cold, my areola stays the same size. Will this eventually change? Many thanks.

My left breast looks very swollen, hurts, and sits high two weeks after breast augmentation. Is this normal?
I had 385 cc implants placed in each breast 2 weeks ago. My right one looks normal and feels good. However, my left breast appears very swollen and hurts. It also sits really high. They are placed over the muscle.

Will 175 cc in one and 150 cc in the other help me achieve symmetry and perkier breasts.
I'm very petite 113 lbs and 5'4" high. My frame was 10 cm breasts. BA due to change in size and symmetry over the last year. I may plan to have one more child within a year. Not going to breastfeed. Will a pregnancy have an impact on my boobs pre ba? Should I go for a bigger cc? My plastic surgeon first told me 300 cc but that was way too big. Also, I'm going under-the-muscle.

Implant is too close to midline and I have crooked cleavage (one breast reduced in implant/pocket size). Undo sutured pocket or switch implant?
Breast Reduction - 3 answers
I recently (6 month PO) had one breast reduced due to asymmetry. The left implant was reduced in size and had a pocket revision. Now that the implant has settled, the implant is too close to my midline (goes past midline with bra on) and I have crooked cleavage. Would it be better to undo the pocket revision or switch to a narrower/smaller implant (left is still larger). I worry smaller implant (as my doctor suggested to avoid undermining the pocket) will not fix the problem entirely.

Can implants help make my nipples even with each other?
I am receiving breast implants but my nipples are about a inch in height difference with each other. Is it possible for implants to help them even out since my breasts are 50cc in difference with volume? After giving birth twice my breasts are extremely asymmetrical. One is a completely different size and my nipples are about an inch in height difference. Would the use of different sized implants to make my breasts a more even volume also make my nipples more even with each other?

Why are my 700cc implants only a small C cup?
About a month and a half ago I got 700cc implants. I was a 40A cup before getting the augmentation, fairly flat chested. I'm 5'7 and 200 pounds, so I'm not a petite person. I tried on these implants pre-surgery in an unpadded bra and had such high hopes!! I'm only a big B/small C cup. I know I'm supposed to wait 3-4 months for them to settle in but I don't see how they can get much bigger than they are now. I'm so disappointed!

Is 420cc high profile nagor silicone too big for me? Should I go for 390cc high profile instead?
Hi, I am 5ft, measurements as follows: sternal notch to nipple 19cm both breasts, distance from nipple to infammary fold 5cm both breasts, Upper pole skin thickness 2cm, based width 12cm, breast height 10cm, frame 28 Inc bust circumstance 30inch. Like all woman I worry what size would look best on me. Is there really much difference between the 390cc and 420cc? I only want to do this once so I want to make the right choices.

What is the appropriate time for healing when it comes to doing pull-ups with a kip? When should be an appropriate time to start doing this exercise?
I am 10wks PO, I went under. I just recently was able to feel comfortable hanging from a bar, but I can't do any sort or kipping/pull-up motion yet without a lot of discomfort. Is this normal this far out from surgery? When can I expect to do this from a bar?

I am 4 wks post BA. My nipples appear to be sitting very low and pointing downward. Will this change as I “drop & fluff”?
I have 500cc smooth implant on left, 550cc smooth implant on right placed above the muscle. My nipples were not low-lying prior to BA, or at least not as noticeably so.
