After Internal Bra Procedure, is It Possible to Remove the Permanent Sutures with Explant?
I had a revision breast aug w/ internal bra a year ago & have decided to explant. Is it possible to remove the internal bra sutures (attached to the rib cage) at the time of explant? Even after a year, I can still feel the sutures tugging (I play volleyball, which means I feel them every time I spike - this isn't pleasant). The original PS said that if I explanted, he wanted to leave the sutures because it's more painful to remove them ("dig them out") than to just leave them. Is this true?
