I got my 1st set of iplants in 1999 and I have needed to have a revision since i had a car wreck in august 2011. The seatbelt caused the capsule around my left breast to rupture. I had 425cc saline filled to 475cc and changed to 800cc hp silicone. The revision wasnt as bad as the original surgery but i am having some pain.
You look amazing for two days PO!

I'm goin on Aug 13 th for my revision, 500cc silicone right now and goin to 800cc silicone and keeping the same pocket which is above the muscle. Do they feel heavy, they did when I got to hold them in the PS office?

Normal?

Today is the first day I've done hair and makeup and the whole dang thing. Had to go to senior daughters summer cheer luncheon. Feel better but by the end of the day I felt like I had run a marathon.
Some insurance companies will cover all or at least part of surgury when you are involved in a wreck etc. If you have insurance it is definitely worth checking with them.

That happened to me too. I was worried and kept thinking all kinds of crazy things. But it really takes about 2-3 months for them to drop and then you can get sized and buy new bras.

Yeah. Im just wearing genie vras now. Because of my size and fear of sagging im wearing a xl and then a lg on top. Just for my peace of mind!!!

infection

Went to dr this morning. I got small hole on incision line on the outside of my right breast Friday. They told me antibiotic cream and guaze 2x daily. That's fine. Then on Saturday night my left breast started swelling and hurting. By Sunday mid afternoon i was in serious pain and running a 102.5 temp. Called dr and he called in levaquin and pain pills. Went and saw him this morning. He looked at the right breast at the hole. Betadined it, stuck the qtip in hole and sqeezed out any goo. Then finally numbed me and put 2 stitches in it. Its good and no sign of infection. Then He sqeezed the hell out of my boob that was already hurting so bad.Prescribed bactrim and if no improvement by morning he has to explant it.

infection

Forgot to say he added bactrim today too.
Oh my gosh!!!! They look stunning!!! I'm so jealous they look like the perfect size! You must be in love already. Are they under? They look like they're dropping so fast!

Thanx for the compliment. They r under and have dropped but i may have to have left one explanted tomorrow depending on how i respond to the antibiotics.

think we saved the boobie!!!!!!

I had to go to the dr every day this past week. By tuesday i was responding a little to the antibiotics and i wanted to at least give the levaquin 3 days to work or not. I went to dr Wednesday still red but less still swollen but less but very painful. My temp.was hanging in at about 101. Went Thursday redness and swelling have lessened fever around 100. Went friday all signs of redness are gone, alot of the swelling is gone and fever is 99!!!! He prescribed 1 more week of levaquin and hopefull all will be good. He did tell me yesterday that on Monday he really didn't think we were going to be able to save the implant. He told me that if i hadnt called him on sunday and started my antibiotics on sunday night it would have been so bad by monday morning that it would have had to come out for sure. Guess its good to be paranoid every once in a while.
Oh thank God you made it thru! Good for you for getting right on those antibiotics, so glad everything worked out :) It must have been a horrible week for you thinking they may have to take it out! Take care of yerself...XXXXXX

My infection finally cleared up but all is not well. My left boob was the one with the infection and now its alot firmer and sits higher than my right. I am massaging but i dont know if it will help. My dr told me that anytime there is an infection that there will be some capsular contraction, we just dont know to what degree;( thinkin i should have had it taken out and waited 6 months and had a new one put in.
Oh crap sorry to hear this, that's what I'm worried about too is the cc and now I can't even take the accolate because of the rash! The infected breast of mine already sits lower though and was always softer than the other one but it's swelling back up again. Did you read the girls comment on my page? She said she had to see an infectious specialist to finally clear hers up after 2 months! When will it end?! For you and me :( sorry yer still dealing, sure don't give me much hope! I'm taking 800mg of bit E, someone's PS on here had said it can soften them, worth a try. Good luck honey, I'll send a prayer yer way...XXXX
