I am almost 12 weeks post op (April 15). I got 310cc low profile Sientra round smooth silicone implants. Throughout my recovery, I have experienced various air bubbles that I can feel for a week or so and eventually go away as my implants settle. However a couple of weeks ago I noticed these two bumps on my left breast and they haven't gone away like the others (yet). They feel like a button... Is it too late to be getting these air bubbles? It is very visible when I am just standing (naked). There is no pain or hardness.
I did see my PS earlier this week and he believes it is the implant. He said he hasn't seen this before and wants to monitor it. I will go back in 6 weeks. The implants do have more settling to do, so I'm hoping the bumps will work themselves out, but I wanted to know what another surgeon's thoughts may be.
Thank you so much!
Hey Kaye La I think your pocket is a little small for your implant. Don't despair though. You're submuscular (or appear to be) and your pec can help you. Try doing some planks and pushups (the opposite of what I normally recommend). It should help the pec to push the implant out and down which will ultimately increase the pocket size. If this doesn't work though you may need a simple in the operating room revision to enlarge the pocket.
As always – I would be so honored to see you at my offices in Raleigh, NC!Reply
