Pain After Revision to Silicone Implant Surgery After Prophylactic Bilateral Mastectomies?
I had prophylactic bilateral mastectomies 2-22-12 w/expanders and SI (400 or 450 cc).I had exch surg 5-22-12.December 20, 2012, I had revision surgery to move the implants in and up. I have had extreme pain (stabbing) under my right breast along the crease and on the rib since this surgery six weeks ago, and my PS tells me it doesn't make sense.She made the crease by suturing the tissue to the sheath covering the rib and did not use Alloderm, and this is likely the problem.Is this a typical technique?
