What is the waiting time between surgery?
5 months ago
I had a breast surgery in mid May 2016 and the doctor put in the wrong implants requested. How soon can I go back and request he redoes the surgery with the correct implants? 3-6mths? or can it be soon when I am 100% not happy with the implant and positioning of the implant.

Most surgeons suggest waiting between 3 and 6 months to give your tissue time to heal and all the swelling subside. I would suggest discussing all your concerns with your doctor.
