5644233 tn?1371557686 Hi lovepeace53, I just read your comments. I would reconsider getting any kind of breast implant. Are you aware that silicone implants can leak ? Yes, you read this correctly. Silicone implants can burst and leak into your body and make you really sick. I'm not aware of what other kinds of implants there are. With breast augmentation ( I think that's the current term) there is always risk of an infection. They have sites now where you can watch a woman having a breast implant.
Avatar f tn My questions are, what are my chances that this could be a sign of cancer, and praying that its not, would I still be a candidate for breast augmentation surgery? Im worrying myself sick over all of this and very nervous about the results!
Avatar f tn I had breast augmentation 15 years ago and my left breast is still numb on one side. Touching it is like touching someone else, it's creepy because I can't feel it. The nipple feeling came back after awhile but not very much. I do not like for it to be touched at all. My husband has just learned to stay away from that one! I would give anything to go back to the way I was before.
Avatar f tn t heard anything for that week, I went ahead with my scheduled breast augmentation. A few days after my augmentation I get a voicemail from my doctor's office stating they were calling to schedule my mammogram. I thought this was a mistake since I had had it done already. Well after a couple of calls and playing phone tag, I finally speak with the woman and she states that I need to come back to do a compression view and possibly an ultrasound.
Avatar n tn The formation of a very thick scar tissue capsule surrounding an implant occurs in a small per cent of patients undergoing breast augmentation. This results in a very hard breast that can sometimes be painful. This can be interpreted as "rejection" of the implant, but there are many theories as to its cause. The primary recognized cause is an internal bleed immediately following the procedure. Infection is a rare complication of this surgery.
1481291 tn?1287793105 Hi, about a year ago, I had a breast augmentation with a lift. I am pregnant now and my dr said I probably wont be able to breastfeed. I was really hoping that I would be able to. Does anyone out there whos had breast surgery have any advice on breastfeeding??
Avatar f tn I had a breast augmentation in May to fix where I had breastfed my first baby. We hadn't planned on getting pregnant again but I am currently 9 weeks. I still plan on breastfeeding and am curious to what my augmentation will look like afterwards. Has anyone else previously had a breast aug and breastfed after that could fill me in on what to expect?
Avatar f tn Me!!! And I have inverted nipples. Some women, even without ever having augmentation cannot breastfeed, but the augmentation shouldn't have changed your ability. Keep in mind it's not easy. It's a great thing if you can but don't over stress if you can't, that's why there's formula.
1613743 tn?1298469227 Hi ladies, well I basically just need some opinions. I am thinking about getting breast augmentation after I have the baby my first question is : If I'm not breast feeding how long does it usually take for the production of milk to stop so that I may have the surgery? The other thing is that I am getting really bad stretch marks on my breast only because I used to be very small and I wanted to know: Does breast augmentation basically restretch your skin so that the marks look less visible?
Avatar f tn Hi. I had breast augmentation on the 1st December 09, everything ok, healed nicely until 14 days later, I started with a cold and pain in my left breast, my ribs, my back, swelling and my skin turned bright red and it was painful to breath so was advised to go to A&E as the surgeon wasnt available, where they gave me antibiotics.
581359 tn?1454006442 I have a question for any of you women that had a breast augmentation before they got pregnant... Did it affect the pregnancy at all? How big did they get, did you get stretch marks? Were you able to breastfeed? How did they look after the pregnancy or after breastfeeding? I've got two girls, breastfed them both until they were almost a year. I do wish to get pregnant again in the future. I'm trying to decide if I should get cost free breast augmentation now, or later.
Avatar n tn Hi, here's some quick background info: I had breast augmentation in Nov. 2006 (saline) and this May (18 months later) I developed a huge rash on my right breast. The rash became a bruise, then the bruise morphed into a huge fluid filled blister-type thing. It began bleeding and pussing all over. This all developed within a week. I went to my surgeon immediately after the blister showed and he cut it open.
Avatar f tn I have a breast augmentation scheduled for Tuesday. Friday I got the results from my mammogram and they detected calcifications on my left breast that were not there 2 years ago. They would like me to have a follow up mammogram in 6 months. Both my breast surgeon and GYN have talked on the phone to each other and the likelihood of this being anything other than benign is very low.
Avatar n tn I had breast augmentation at Fitzsimmons Army Hospital October 2nd or 3rd, 1980, and I need a copy of the Proof of Manufacturer mailed to me. They were Dow Corning implants, they ruptured and they had to be removed. In order to file my class action claim with Dow Corning Trust, I need the surgical implant report stating they were Dow Corning. Please advise. My sponsor was William J. Callahan, Captain, USAF, last four of SSN 8088, and my info is: Dorothy J.
Avatar f tn I recently had a Breast Augmentation surgery last April and I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with baby number two. I would like to try to breastfeed but not sure how it will go. My implants are sub-muscular and my incision was made in my areola. Has anyone else been in my situation and if so how did breastfeeding go?

Avatar n tn I got a breast augmentation almost 2 years ago. I'm 25 weeks pregnant now and am very nervous how bad it will hurt if it will hurt at all after my breast fill with milk considering there's an implant taking up so much room. Does breast feeding ruin them?
Avatar n tn Any surgeon can do it as long as they do breast surgeries i.e. breast augmentation.
Avatar n tn I went into breast augmentation surgery with one breast smaller than the other (pretty normal, I know). I was a small 34A and am 5'2 and 100 pounds. My surgeon chose 350 cc Mentor Moderate Plus gel implants for both sides and I did not question this, foolishly, prior to surgery as I figured he knew what he was doing. Now 10 days post-op my left breast is noticeably smaller than the right, just as before surgery.
Avatar m tn I had my breast operation about 7 weeks ago, with no complications and im very pleased with the outcome. My question is how long should i wait to start wearing underwire bras again??
Avatar n tn hi,I had a breast augmentation 3 weeks ago.It was done on monday august 18th.On thursday august 21 i woke up to a hard painful mass on my left chest on the upper part of it.It's right where the cleavage is.Its the size of a ping pong ball.It hasn't gotten any better.It hurts so bad that when i go to get up i cry.I went to the emergency room that saturday and they did an ultra sound and said there's a big mass but nothing contaning fluid and then kicked me out the door.
Avatar f tn I am a 38 year old woman. I was perfectly fine until I had a breast augmentation done. After two days the left side of my face started going numb and it felt as if I had pins and needles. This is now 4 years later and my symptoms have progressed so badly to the point that it feels af if my muscles are attacking me. i have these attacks where anything from my skull, chest, tummy, back will just go into spams.
Avatar f tn i want to get a breast augmentation but i am hepatitis b possible will that affect anything?
