My implants are 25 years old. The right breast is causing pain below the implant. I think it has dropped. Any suggestions?

Breast pain from 25 year old implants
Breast implant pain
You may have what is called capsular contracture where the scar tissue around the implant has tightened. That would not be surprising in implants that are 25 years old. But with any breast pain, you must look into other options as well. I encourage you to see your primary care physician or gynecologist for an exam and potentially a mammogram. You can also schedule an appointment with a plastic surgeon in your area for an evaluation. Best wishes.
