In April 08, I finally had the silicone jel emplants, when I had this surgery, my
opened up over the nipple area. It was in the process of healing, and scabbed over. My plastic surgeon sent me back to work, knowing I had a very strenuous job, repetitive motion, lifting, etc. She did not put me on any restrictions. The second day of work, the area opened up, you could actually see the emplant. She knew all along this was not healing. She had to remove the emplant in May.
