I sought out a second opinion and the plastic surgeon who saw me today agrees that I should NOT have received UHP implants. I am THRILLED he is willing to do a revision. He plans to to go with a slightly wider base, and lower profile and thus, ccs. I’m nervous however because he said he is willing to do it anytime (now). He said I don’t have to wait- I am currently almost 3 months post op as of July 26th. He also said I don’t have to take 6 weeks off work (I am a nurse who works at a pediatric hospital and lifts patients anywhere from 10-40 lbs. Does this seem ok?
It does sound correct. Your pocket is in place so you won't have to take off as much time for recovery. Earliest I would do is 3 months to allow that pocket to form. But it's not an exact science--10 vs 12 vs 14 weeks. Seems like you have a good feeling and I have learned to trust that. Best of luck!
As always – I would be so honored to see you at my offices in Raleigh, NC!Reply
