Turned 40 and Wanted a Natural Augmentation

I had been considering breast implants for several...

I had been considering breast implants for several years and when I turned 40..I just decided yes. I had a dillema regarding the size I am 5' 1" and 105 and wanted a natural appearance. I was torn between 270 and 300 ml implants. On the day of surgery I decided 300.

From the moment after surgery I knew they were to big for my frame. Then I find out the doctor filled the implants to 300ml to decrease rippling. So I still have rippling on both sides and the muscle pocket of the left is torn. So this has been a terrible experience. The doctor did not tell me he was going to overfill the 300ml implants so otherwize I would have gone with the smaller milliliter implant.

What should I do? I need to pay for another surgery. The doctor covers the cost of the muscle repair but not anesthia. But I want to get smaller implants instead and I'm sure that will be a whole other cost.

The doctor did not inform me that he would be overfilling the implants.

I had saline implants only 4 years ago and now one has deflated. I have to gothrough the whole process all over again plus more expense. If I would have known this I would have never had the implants. I currently have 400 cc saline implants and liked the way they look but considering 450cc is this a wise choice. I just feel since I have to go through the pain and process all over again I might as well get them bigger??? Depressed in WA state...

I'm sorry you had to go through this. You say you wanted 300 cc, but then he filled to 300cc. Is there a typo maybe?

I'm wondering if you've since had a revision...

sounds like the doctor overfilled the 300cc they often do this with saline implants
