My surgeon "button-holed" my skin. The cut reopened and implants needed to be removed due to possible infection. I now need 6 wks of IV & oral antibiotics. Is this mistake within the realm of those inherent risks and possible complications covered by the waiver you sign?
Is a "Button-hole" a Normal Complication of Breast Implants?

A button hole of the skin can happen. As to why it happened, you would have to ask your surgeon because he was in the operating room when it happened.
