Exchange Surgery? Concaves After Expanders? (photo)
Have had expanded in now for 5 and1/2 months. Had a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy (BRACA 2 positive) w/o complications. My left expander healed with scarring down in the lower left medial infra mammary area and also I am more concave in the upper left area overlying the implant - my Plastic Surgeon has assured me that he can fix the concavity with grafted fat from my abdomen and that he would break up the scar/ adhesions during the permanent exchange. What happened?
