Not healing five months after breast implant and lift Not healing 5 months after breast lift with implants
Thank you for your question. As others have stated you most likely have a chronic infection around the implant. Of course a consultation an in person examination is necessary for proper advice. However based on your history you most likely need the breast implant removed to allow for a period of healing and clearing of the infection. Your breast implants may well be able to be replaced after a six month waiting period

Ask a doctor
A photo and some more details would help here. For example, has the implant been visible through the incision?
I am not sure that I am getting the whole picture here, but I am suspicious that you may have an implant infection. If I am correct, the solution will be removing the implant and leaving it out until 3 months after all has healed before replacement.
A second opinion might be the best option at this point in time. All the best.
If you have had issues with the implant requiring a washout, and you are still having problems, then that is no good. Best to be seen in person. It might require that you remove the implant and what a few months before putting one back in.
Augmentation not healing
If you had to have the implant temporarily removed and everything washed out and it still is not healing, I would be concerned that you might have a chronic low-grade infection around the implant.
