I am a 22 year old female and I had breast augmentation surgery about 3 and a half years ago. I have had no problems and have been very happy with my surgery and end results.
Prior to surgery I had naturally bigger breast 34 full B, smaller C and received 250cc implants. Recently I changed my diet and began exercising daily, causing me to loose about 10 pounds now weighing 105 pounds at 5'3''.
However, along with the weight loss I have noticed that my right breast implant has what I think I could call a ripple, directly beneath the nipple. If you press it, you can actually feel it 'pop' in and back out with out pressure. I also have noticed that sometimes with a spots bra on and a thin t-shirt that after exercising and becoming cold, you can see a subtle arch shaped line where the ripple is (a little to the side of my actually nipple). And It does cause me some discomfort when I am cold and my nipple becomes hard. However all the time it makes me have an uncomfortable feeling as I know this is not normal.
I know I need to make an appointment with my plastic surgeon and am going to this week but with the holidays coming up, I know that I most likely won't be able to get in for about another week. My question is, what is this? why did this happen and do you think I will have to have correction surgery? and if so, do you think the doctor would charge full price or have a correction price?My question is, what is this? why did this happen and do you think I will have to have correction surgery? and if so, do you think the doctor would charge full price or have a correction price?
