I had my breast implant surgery last july 2011.It didn't go well.Right incision got infected,had to removed the implant 3 weeks after.I was on antibiotic for 2 months. I kept cleaning my suture area with hydrogen peroxide alone and triple antibiotic for 2 months. On september the incision area opened a circular tiny tunnel for weeks.Went to a doctor,then just used an iodoform gauze.There was no swelling or too much drainage.Is it okay and safe to hav an implant surgery again?
Breast Re-augmentation after Previous Exposure?
I'm sorry to hear about the complication you have experience.
Yes, at some point you should be able to have your breast re-augmented. Exactly how many months you will have to wait will depend on many factors including how aggressive an infection ( if any) you experienced ( for example, what cultures/bacteria grew) and will come down to your surgeon's judgment/experience. In other words, ultimately a judgment call will be necessary to determine the best timing for breast we augmentation.
Best wishes for a successful outcome.
After breast implant infection and full treatment. You need to wait a minimum of 6 month before attempting to reinsert a new implant.
