56 Year Old Implants Leaking Silicone into Lymph Nodes - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have had silicone implants for 33 years, the last set I got was 14 years ago with a lift, 400 mL mentor gel high profile. My mammogram from 2014 shows silicone in my lymph nodes, Dr. never told me I discovered it on my own. I believe the silicone was making me ill had a lot of auto immune disease symptoms and problems in my joints. I have been researching for the past couple of months and I was seriously considering X planting all together. But I've gone to two PS, they have told me I will not be happy with myself that they will look terrible because of the loose skin. I am scheduled to have implants and capsules out tomorrow and have another set put in. I am wondering if I'm doing the right thing, I seriously believe they are making me ill. I'm very confuse right now and anxious. I also told him I do not want to go bigger I want to go smaller but he does not want to do a lift on me and compromise NY nipples. This will be my fifth surgery with implants in and out. Thank you for this forum I have been learning a lot about it this is the first time I'm actually sharing my situation.

56 Yr Old with Capsular Contracture

I am a 56 yr old woman that has had implants for 33 yrs. I had a lift in 2004 so I have had Mentor 400cc high profile, behind the muscle for the last 14 yrs. I recently went to Dr. Jorge Perez for a consult because I wasn't comfortable with my breasts and thought they were leaking silicone into my lymph nodes. I was immediately impressed with Dr. Perez and his entire staff. I had a lot of questions and wasn't quite sure what I wanted. Dr. Perez really listened to me and explained in detail what was happening with my implants, that had both capsulized and were not sitting correctly in my chest resulting in an undesirable look. The entire staff helped me in my decision and they were all very sweet, informative and I got the feeling they genuinely cared about my situation, the entire office acted together as a team! I knew in my heart that I could trust Dr. Perez and his staff and am so grateful to each one of them. The first step in your decision making is feeling completely comfortable with your surgeon and his team. I would recommend Dr. Jorge Perez & his staff with 100% confidence. I am thrilled with the end results, Dr. Perez went above & beyond to make me look & feel comfortable in myself mentally & physically!
