Saline Breast Implants Valves Palpable below Areola?

Thank you for the question.

What you're describing is most consistent with the valves associated with saline breast implants. Check with your plastic surgeon to be sure.

Best wishes.

Lump underneath nipples after augmentation

Do you have saline implants?  If you do, then it is most likely that you are feeling the port for fluid insertion.

The lump may be the fill valve..

If you have saline implants, you may be feeling the fill valve. At any rate, check with your surgeon at your next visit. Good Luck!
