What are your thoughts on the current FDA reviews of breast implants? All these contradictory statements have me confused.
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I watched part of the FDA events over the past two days, and there were so many women speaking out against breast implants. I have been happy and healthy with mine for years, but now they make it sound like I have a ticking time bomb in my chest. Where did all this come from? Is there any evidence to support the statements that implants will cause health issues? My surgeon says there is nothing to connect implants to any of these claims. I want to know the real science behind this.

I have a desk job. Can I go back to work on Tuesday if I have my breast augmentation on a Saturday?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I have a desk job that doesn't require too much bending and lifting. How soon can I go back to work after BA? I don't want to use my vacation days. If I have them done on Saturday can I go back to work on Tuesday?

I’m 3 weeks post-breast augmentation and have noticed my incision is leaking. Should I be worried?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I had a breast augmentation 3 weeks ago. I was sitting down, sneezed, and felt wetness coming from my crease incision. It’s not the whole incision, just a little piece. Should I be worried? It’s not a lot, maybe a drop before it dried out. I'm still worried.

The surgeon who is going to do my breast augmentation never discussed implant volume and only recommended silicone under the muscle. What to do?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I had a consultation 1 week ago. He was kind and knowledgeable, but I felt extremely rushed. He's done beautiful work on two of my friends—their recovery was quick and without complications. I paid $1000 down for the $6200 surgery and have it scheduled for January 14. Looking back, my surgeon never had me try on sizers and didn't discuss profile. I told him I wanted a full C/small D, but he never suggested a cc volume. He said my only option was silicone under the muscle. What should I do?

How is it possible that my cohesive silicone implant that’s 2.5 yrs old ruptured?
Breast Augmentation -2 answers
I have cohesive silicone gel implants by Mentor that were placed ~2.5 years ago. I had to get an MRI & mammogram done for breast cancer screening, which is when they found that my right implant is ruptured. I’ve noticed the right was smaller than usual lately but thought it was normal asymmetry. I recall no trauma of any sort and I am very careful with my implants. How could this rupture happen in relatively new implants? Is it possible the mammogram ruptured my implant or made it worse?

Would 575-650cc Mentor silicone smooth round implants give me a natural-looking DD?
Breast Augmentation -1 answer
I’m 5’10, 169 lbs board back. I think BWD is 14.5, so I'm like a B. Lost boob size from working out. Perky, no sag though. I’m wanting a DD full cleavage and side boob, but don’t want them resting up too high. I want a natural hang. Don’t want to look like a fake barbie.

Will my breast pocket stretch over time? I was very clear with my surgeon about wanting a natural slope. I don't have this.
Breast Augmentation -3 answers
He told me there was no noticeable difference between rounds and anatomical. I'm coming up on my one-year post-op and I'm really not happy. There's a very abnormal shape to them. I'm quite sad about it. I consider myself an age gracefully/hippie kind of person and this was a huge decision. I breastfed all 3 of my babies and that definitely took a toll on my body. Will the pocket stretch with gravity? Is there an actual difference between the look of anatomical and rounds?

One breast implant is noticeably bigger than the other. What should I do?
Breast Augmentation -2 answers
I am 4 months post-op of a breast aug with silicone implants. My left breast was smaller than the right to begin with. My PS did a 500cc implant on the left and 425 on the right. Now my left breast is noticeably bigger than the right. I know I am not fully healed, but as my implants settle, the size difference between the two implants is more apparent. How can this be corrected? Also, my PS had me do a “rice test” to get an idea of how big I want to go. Am I liable for the size difference?

Is 430cc's enough to get to a 34D cup with a narrow chest?
Breast Augmentation -2 answers
I am a 34B now, after breastfeeding of two kids. I am expecting 34D cup after breast augmentation surgery. My doctor suggests I choose 430cc ultra high profile but said it can be more than I am expecting. I am 4'17", 114lb.

What are some options for encouraging my breast implants to settle?
Breast Augmentation -5 answers
I am 2 months post-breast augmentation. One of my implants isn’t settling into the pocket. My doctor doesn’t believe in massages or the band. What are some options to correct this? Also, at what point is it safe to have the correction done to help the implant drop? 3, 4 or 6 months? I just hate how they look; it’s so uneven. I’ve been severely depressed about how I look. Please help. My doc isn’t as sympathetic towards my concern.

How do I know if I have implant displacement?
Breast Augmentation -3 answers
Since surgery, my right breast has done really well—it’s dropped and fluffed. My left, however, is still struggling and is showing no signs of dropping. The only progress thus far is the swelling is gone and no more pain. The implant itself is still sitting where my surgeon put it. My skin has stretched at the bottom but it’s empty. I am embarrassed about how I look. I’ve expressed this concern to my doc be he just says watch and wait but gives no explanation for the problem.

Do I have a capsular contracture after my hematoma?
Breast Augmentation -3 answers
I'm 2 weeks post-op. My PS confirmed I had a "slight" hematoma in my right breast at 4 days po. That breast has hard lumpy nuggets in it and the whole breast is very firm. It is nothing like my left. It rides high but isn't larger in appearance. My PS gave me the option to have a full blown surgery to drain it, remove the implant and put the same implant back under general anesthesia. Or, wait and see. I opted to wait. Now I think I made a mistake. I don't know what my options are or what to do.

Will my breasts look bigger after dropping and fluffing? I'm scared that they will get smaller because I love the size they are now.
Breast Augmentation -2 answers
I had 410cc high profile silicone implants placed under the muscle 1 week and 4 days ago. I am 6,2m in length and weight is 51kg. I was a small A-cup before. I really would love to be at least a D-cup. Will my breast get smaller than they are now?

Can lack of cleavage be fixed with a second breast augmentation without changing implant size?
Breast Augmentation -5 answers
I had breast augmentation on January 16. I had no complications. I like the size and how they feel. However, I don't have cleavage. My breasts are too far apart, so that makes me feel embarrassed and sad. I cannot wear certain kinds of clothes because the separation looks awful. I was totally flat and had no cleavage before the surgery, so I'm OK with the size, just not the cleavage. Is there a way to fix this problem without increasing the size of the implant? How would my surgeon do this?

Is it possible to rupture your breast implants with side sleeping?
Breast Augmentation -3 answers
I had my breast augmentation on January 16th. So far I haven't had any complications. However, I would like to know if there is a risk of rupture with side sleeping. I haven't found any information about it and it scares me that the pressure can make the implants rupture.

How will my current implants affect my CC decision for new augmentation?
Breast Augmentation -3 answers
I’m getting a second breast augmentation. My first augmentation brought me up from no breast tissue to 225 cc's. When considering how big I should go this time, does having breast implants now make a difference? Now that I already have a B cup, will that effect my cc's for the next surgery?
