Q&A: REVISIONARY BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY CONCERNS

"Over a year ago I got a breast augmentation,32 a/b & got submus silicone 400cc. The right side bottomed out in 1 month. Waited 7 months then I went in for 4-6 external tacking stitches. He only ended up doing 3. Didn’t work. He said he didn’t go as aggressive and we should do more stitches one last time. We did. it’s still droopy and now he says we have to remove nip & implant do internal stitches, then put back implant. Should I give up on having even boobs, find a new doctor, do the surgery?"

 

DR. POUSTI: I am sorry to hear about the problems you have experienced after breast augmentation surgery. It is challenging, given your history, to provide you with specific advice online. My best suggestion, given your concerns and reservations, is to seek second opinion consultations with a few board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience helping patients with revisionary breast surgery.
