Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
My implant ruptured about five weeks ago. Will my breast tissue start to shrink? Or does it take time
Timing on removal of a ruptured implant.
May 2, 2020
A ruptured silicone or sailing implant will not change the size of your native breast. That being said, if you have a saline implant that is ruptured, you will notice a decrease in the size of your breast as the saline is absorbed by your body.  If you have a ruptured silicone implant then you will probably not notice any change in the size of your breast.   The silicone will stay within the capsule, which is the thin layer of scar tissue that surrounds any breast implant, whether sali...
Do I need a lift as well as a nipple reduction?
Lift? Nipple Reduction?
May 2, 2020
Good question  I think you are a great candidate for a breast augmentation.  Your nipple areola complex (the nipple itself plus the surrounding darker colored skin) is a little bit enlarged for the size of your breast right now.  The Nipple Areola Complex (NAC) diameter can be reduced relatively easily, but it will “cost you” a scar all the way around the NAC.   I think this needs to be decided once you have settled on your desired implant size.  Good luck on your journey.
650cc or 700cc? Silicone HP unders. I'm hoping for a rounded "fake" appearance that gives me upper po
Fake look
Feb 10, 2019
I think you can rest assured that your breasts will look plenary “fake”! And the difference between 650 and 700 is negligible. Also don’t forget that “the bigger they are...the harder they fall”!  
Why do my 480cc UHP implants seem small?
Don’t panic!
Feb 10, 2019
It is way too early to panic about size. You actually chose pretty large implants for your frame! It does not look like your body would have been able to handle much larger anyway. Please sit tight and let the surgical swelling go down, allow your skin to stretch, and thenimplants to “settle”. The pec muscle is very swollen now and distorts the result. I always tell my patients that your breasts will look like “two weird headlights” for a while. Be patient. 
I want to get my breast implants removed
Implant removal
Apr 21, 2018
From the photo provided it looks like you would benefit from implant removal or maybe downsizing your implants. Very large implants can be very uncomfortable. I recommend consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in implant removal and discuss your options. 
How soon can a cosmetologist return to work after a BA?
How long off work for a BA?
Apr 21, 2018
Dear Jeanette. Thank you for your question. I am a Board certified plastic surgeon and i went back to work 4 days after my breast augmentation. I had it done on a Thursday afternoon after i saw patientsbin the morning and was back to work on Monday. I worked a full week operating and seeing patients. I was sore and tried to schedule cases that were not particularly physically demanding, but i was easily able to work and take good care of people. My breasts just felt like they did when i...
I hate my breast aug results and need advice. What can I do to fix them? Please help!
What’s wrong with my implants?
Apr 21, 2018
I am sorry to hear you are unhappy with your breast implants. Based on your concerns and the photos provided, you probably need a smaller implant and a lift in order to achieve the “rounder” and prettier breast that you are looking for. You did not state the size of the implants but it looks like they are probably overfilled saline implants. They are sitting in reasonable position relative to your breast fold but you have a fair amount of your own breast that is hanging over the front of th...
Will going from 500cc to a 750 have less chance of problems with bigger implants since I'm only going
The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
Apr 16, 2018
If you are sure you want larger breasts you have to weigh out the risks and benefits of a larger implant. You look like you are pretty young and your skin did well with pregnancies, however, a 750cc implant is quite a bit larger! The largest implant available is 800cc. I would recommend caution. 
Will Medicare pay for breast implant removal if ruptured?
Insurance for implant removal
Apr 16, 2018
Generally speaking insurance will not cover removal of implants that were placed for cosmetic purposes. Depending on the situation is MAY be possible to remove a ruptured saline implant under local anesthesia in an office setting, but it is not likely that a ruptured silicone implant can be safely or effectively removed in an office setting. 
Can compression or sports bras help with skin retraction, etc. after saline implant deflation?
what type of bra to wear after deflation of saline implants
Dec 29, 2017
I usually recommend wearing a snug fitting compression or sports bra after deflation.  I dont really think it has any real bearing on how well or how much the skin retracgts.  I think that has more to do with actual properties of your breast tissue and skin.  I would wear something comfortable and let your breasts "re-accomadate" for 2-3 months.  I have seen surprising changes occur.   
Breast feeding mom wants Breast Augmentation, what's the wait time before going to a consultation?
when is a good time for consultation for BA if you are still nursing?
Dec 29, 2017
I honestly think you could go in for a consultation when you are starting to wean your child.  It doesnt make sense to see a plastic surgeon when you are exclusively breastfeeding, but at some point you will have an endpoint in mind.  An experienced breast surgeon will be able to get a pretty good idea of what your needs will be even if you are still nursing some.  I would recommend waiting a minimum of three, and ideally 6 months after finishing breast feeding before proceeding with au...
I am trying to avoid a breast lift, would bigger implants fix this gap? I already have 325cc. (photos
Will a bigger implant make me happy?
Jul 28, 2017
Bigger implants will give you similar shapes larger and heavier (and therefore saggier in the long run) breasts. I am not sure what "gap" you are talking about. Your current implants appear to be in perfect position relative to the breast fold and the nipple areola. A bigger and wider implant will close the space between your breasts but so will a nice, well fitted push-up bra. Bigger is not always better. If your breasts are the size you would like them to be I would not recommend a bigger...
How soon can I replace my brand new implants? I am over a week post op, and I already want to replace
How soon can implants be removed after BA?
Jul 28, 2017
I am sorry to hear that you are not happy with your breast augmentation. The short answer is "don't panic" and allow the swelling to go down before you make a rash decision. You may well decide that you don't want the present implants but one week is simply not indicative of how your breasts will look in a couple weeks or a couple months. If you are 100% sure you don't want implants at all then technically they can be removed any time. If however you think you may elect to have a smaller ...
Is it safe & normal for a doctor to put back the same implant 3 months after it was removed? If so, h
Replacing a "used" implant
Jul 28, 2017
This is definately not common practice. I am sure that it would void your warranty. Perhaps you misunderstood your surgeon and he/she meant that the plan would be to put back in the same brand and size implant, not the exact same implant. I recommend clarifying this before secondary surgery. Your complication is fortunately unusual but removal of the implant and waiting 3-6 months was the right thing to do  sorry about your situation and good luck. 
Breast implant revision and capsular contracture?
Do you wait till after kids to do mommy makeover?
Jul 28, 2017
I guess it really depends how much the left capsular contracture bothers you now. The short answer is to wait til you are done with childbearing because that takes away one big risk factor for recurrence of your capsular contracture. You have been "twice bit" so I think there is a pretty high probability of recurrence if you have a revision now and then have more kids. All that being said if you are in pain or the cap con is very deforming it may be worth it to proceed with revision and ...
