I had augmentation, under muscle, Mentor, with lift, 430 cc about 3 years ago. September 2011 I woke up with 70% of my right breast bruised. It was the weekend so I went to the emergency room where the doctor called my plastic surgeon. I was told that the bruising/severe pain was caused from a capsular tear after seeing my surgeon. Now 6 months later I am still experiencing discomfort and more so burning throughout my breast and nipple. Again, only one breast and 3 years post surgery, no injury.
I Had Augmentation & Lift 3 Years Ago. Experienced Capsular Tear, And Still Have Discomfort. What To Do?
