Pocket of fluid or I'm not sure on right breast augmentation. (photos)
5 months ago
I had a second BA done by the same PS because my left saline implant had deflated, I also had capsular contracture. He put in silicone this time and also repositioned my right areola. Since the surgery (a little over a year ago) I have an area under the repositioned areola that is squishy, purplish in color and hasn't improved? What is this?. I also think the scarring on the repositioned areola is terrible. It's not circular, should this be improved as well or are my expectations too much?

Thank you for asking about your breast augmentation and nipple repositioning.
- The squishy, purple area looks like a large vein near the surface of the skin.
- It looks as though the nipple incision healed poorly -
- An office revision is reasonable but depending on how you heal, may end up looking much the same.
- The areola is smaller than the other side and will not look match it.
