Problems with Implants

Post by loulimar on 23rd October 2011, 3:04 pm

Hi,
I had implants about 5 years ago - after breastfeeding 5 children I just wanted my boobs to be put back to normal.
I told my surgeon that I didn't want big boobs, I just wanted them a similar size to what they were but he told me that I'd have to have quite big ones to 'fill them out' - obviously I had to go with his advice but I've always been uncomfortable with the size change - they just made me look fat.
I would however have been able to cope with it better if they had been a nice shape but although they are round from the front profile - they are completely a strange shape from the side - they sort of come out high, then go completely flat on the front as if I'm squashed up against a pane of glass.
I went back to see him twice in the beginning. The first time he told me to massage, massage massage because I had capsular contraction - the second time he just said the breasts were quite soft now but sometimes you can improve breasts 100%, sometimes you can't and sent me away.
I've been really unhappy since, and now as a single mum, paying for surgery again is out of the question.
What would you do in my shoes?

Sounds like you are a bit stuck hun. Your aftercare will have run out with your surgeon so you can't go back to complain. Sounds like you have a low profile implant and you are unhappy with the projection. The only thing you can do is try to get the money together to change the implants.

I agree honey.

I have the same issue with one of my boobs, looks completely flat from the side and I also feel they are uncomfortable. Hoping to get them redone with smaller implants but will need a full lift now to accommodate this.

Try not to get too fed up with them, it's hard because it's a huge part of our femininity.

do you know what your aftercare plan was? most "say" between 5-10 yrs for cc, rupture now etc...

when you say "they sort of come out high, then go completely flat on the front as if I'm squashed up against a pane of glass" Does your own breast tissue falls below the implant and were they placed under your muscle?

Hmm does sound like you may have needed a lift as well as the implant and sounds like he just put in a big implant instead hun. I would check your aftercare policy as Kinky says cc is usually covered for 5-10 years and he has diagnosed that already so you may be able to get them on that. Good luck xx

Hi hun, i have exactly the same problem with my left breast. from my areola under my nipple to the bottom of my breast looks like (from the side) ive walked into a wall.

My surgeon has said that its because i dont have enough tissue or fat covering the implant. He has suggested that i have a thick filler (perlane) injected into the area but it ony lasts upto 6months & ive got to pay over £400.

I have thought to myself recently that maybe i should of had extra projection on that side. When we 1st discussed what implants i should have, he 1st was gonna use a different size in my smaller breast but in the end he used same size & evened them up via the uplift i also had.

Obviously i understand that he couldnt be 100% certain what the outcome was gonna be, i do feel very unhappy as i feel now that one of my breasts looks deformed :-(

sounds to me like you had unders, yes?

I think you needed an uplift and hes fobbing you off. It sounds like what I had except my surgeon put it right for me, no question
