  • I thought the Dr. would respond to the picture? Do you have to wait for anyone to answer?

  • twiggy  I'm out of town...sorry for the delay.

    I can't be certain as it looks like you've had a lift or a reduction previously and I obviously can't examine you online but you definitely have asymmetry and it's significant.  It COULD be capsular contracture, it could be something else too, almost looks like you don't have an implant on the other side.  I saw you have gels so rupture wouldn't cause deflation.  Can you provide any more background for me?

     

    I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!

      Dr Michelle Roughton Thank you, Dr. for your reply! I had my old implants removed after 36 years. Never had any problems with them. They were silicone implants placed on top of the muscle. They had ruptured and I wanted them out but with new implants. My PS was able to do the entire surgery together. He thought it was best to do a lift which would put them back onto my chest. I wanted 600cc implants because of the length of my chest. I would have nice fullness but the PS  used 425cc silicone implants under the muscle. He didn't think after having breast tissue removed the nipple repositioned that he would not be able to fit 600cc implants. Needless to say, I am not very happy with the way my breasts look. I know I will need revision surgery which I was not expecting. I would like to go bigger but I don't think my PS will give me what I?? Do I get a refund?? :)

    • twiggy This is super helpful.  Here's my best guess (without examining you).  Your implant that's lower flipped back into the over the muscle plane and the implant that's higher is still under the muscle, giving you totally different looks.  Refunds are very different from revisions and you should have a really frank discussion with the surgeon.  Mention that you're dissatisfied and ask what can be done.  This is where the relationship between you and your surgeon is really important.  No one has or expects you to have unlimited money and time.  It's ok to admit that.  I wasn't expecting to have to undergo more surgery and respectfully I would ask that you waive your fee.  Your surgeon should NOT be satisfied with these results either.  If you don't think (A) you agree with his plan (B) don't trust him or (C) don't care for his revision pricing you should DEFINITELY look elsewhere.  Here's the rub though, the new surgeon will likely be more expensive as they are unlikely to offer any discount...not their work, etc.  You're always welcome to come see me for another opinion or if you like, let us know where you live and we can try and recommend other good surgeons in the area. Best of luck to you!
