I am really sorry to hear what happened to your mother.I would advise that she definitely seek
medical attention.There could have been
implant rupture or it could possibly be a hematoma which is bleeding that would
need to be evacuated.There may also be
injuries to her body that are not evident, so seeking medical attention after a
car accident is always advisable.I hope
I am sorry to hear that your mother was in a car accident; even with
the advent of seat belts and air bags, car accidents are still very scary.I would recommend that your mother seek
medical attention immediately, especially given her age and medical
concerns.The implant may have ruptured,
or she could have a hematoma that requires evacuation.There could also be other internal injuries
that are not immediately obvious.My
best wishes to her and you.
Thank you for your question. A person of her age with multiple health complications as your mentioned should seek medical attention after a collision regardless, in order to rule out any injuries which might not be apparent immediately. Her primary care physician will be able to order imaging tests to determine if her implant has been compromised. She could certainly book a consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon as well to discuss removal/replacement if necessary.
All the best
I appreciate your question.
Yes, I would certainly recommend she see a board certified plastic surgeon to rule out implant rupture or a her primary care doctor for a examination.
The best way to assess and give
true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified
plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
Sorry to hear about your mother's car accident. She should definitely seek medical care since she is having problems. The bruising of her chest and the large lump on her breast may indicate a ruptured breast implant. An ultra sound or a MRI of the breast would help identify problems with her breast implants. Best wishes to your mother.
Sorry to hear about your mom's accident and hope she is other fine (altho I'm sure sore). In all likelihood these implants were already ruptured and contained within the capsule. I would recommend she see a plastic surgeon and probably have him/her order an MRI scan to evaluated the implants. Obviously her overall health comes before any implant surgery. Wishing her well, Dr. Schuster in Boca Raton
Thank you for your question.
So sorry your mom was in a car accident & hope she has a quick recovery. I would certainly recommend she see a plastic surgeon or a visit to her family physician for a examination. Best of luck.
Yes… I would definitely have your mom looked at by a plastic surgeon. If there is concern for implant rupture, they should be removed, at a minimum.
It is imperative
that you seek the advice of a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American
Board of Plastic Surgery and has extensive experience in breast augmentation.
I wish you the best.
Thank you for your question and I hope your mother is doing better. As the car accident seems to have been fairly violent - your mother having developed a "seatbelt sign" and change to the appearance of her breast - best to be evaluated as a trauma patient in her local ER. This can rule out significant injuries while also allowing for examination of her implant integrity. Hope this helps.
