Explant or Exchange
- 5 years ago
I'm 40 years old, 5' 3", 115 lbs, 34B prior to surgery. Misunderstanding between my PS and myself resulted in me having 350cc high profile implants, under muscle, on 3-7-12. My breast are too big. All I wanted to achieve was a fuller top portion of my breast and to have my nipple raised a little. After a few post op consultations, my PS has agreed to exchange the implants for 200cc low profile. The diameters of the implant are the same; so there is no concern with the pocket already created. I don't know if I should go through with the exchange or just have them removed all together. I am terified that they will still be too big and then I'm stuck because a third surgery would be out of the question for at least 6 months later. The PS will only say I will see a significant change. Has anyone had 200cc, low profile implants? If so, what was the result? How about those who chose to have removal? Were you satsified with those results? Did your breast return to their original size? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
