Just a back story, I had my 1st breast aug. in 2003. In 2014 I got staph infection and resulted in a ruptured implant on the left. So I got a new implant. However, after this healing process my breasts were not symmetrical what so ever. I was highly I satisfied. & my right breast became capsulated. I went back to my surgeon and he said there was nothing he could do to fix the left breast (which I was the most unhappy with) he said he could lower the right which would leave me with two saggy breasts. *in my option* I wanted them to look more fake. Anyways, this year I went with a new surgeon which did an AMAZING job! I love them so far. I got my surgery on 12/11/15, I had a breast revision with a lift. The incision was through the nipple. I have two drains, one per breast. (To get them out they said the drain output needs to be less than 30ml for two consecutive days) They are uncomfortable, my left one has been in the 30's but my right one is still around 45-50ml. How can I get it to stop draining so much? Is there something I can not do or do. They told me to make sure my bra is tight and that should help slow it. But nothing changed /:
Las Vegas Plastic Surgeon

Let me start of by saying, Dr. Reynolds is the most amazing doctor out there! I’ll say it again… If I could give him 10 stars I would, no doubt about it! I was so fearful about having another surgery, and the day I met Dr. Reynolds I felt so comfortable, I had so much trust and confidence in him already. I had breast revision surgery in December 2015 with Dr. Reynolds and I couldn't have wished for better results. When I turned 21 years old, I had my primary breast augmentation done in January of 2013 by another surgeon here in Las Vegas. In April of 2014, I found out I had Staph infection in one of my breasts. (It was horrifying) I couldn't believe what was happening. Needless to say I had surgery with my 1st surgeon and he replaced the implant and removed the infected tissue. 6 months later, my breast had fallen down (it was saggy)... My breasts were no longer symmetrical, I was so sad because being 22 years old and I couldn't feel comfortable wearing a bikini or even a " going out" top. I went back to that 1st surgeon and he told me there was no way he could fix the breast that had staph infection. He told me, "I could lower your right breast for $800." I felt helpless, I felt like I was stuck with those horrible breasts forever! Then I saw one of my friends from middle school and she told me she went to Dr. Reynolds, she told me how amazing he was. So I thought, what the heck let's give it a shot and see what he says... I went to my consultation with Dr. Reynolds and he changed my perspective on plastic/cosmetic surgery. He made me feel like I was the only patient he had, he spent so much time with me and LISTENED to my goals. He gave me 3 options, he even told me the most effective vs the cost effective. (I appreciated him taking into concern my finances.) He truly made the whole experience about me. I had my breast revision surgery in December 2015, and that was the best decision I ever made. That surgery truly changed my life, I feel much happier and more confident. Thanks to Dr. Reynolds and his amazing team! From the moment, I walked in the door the staff made me feel like family. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family. If I decide to have another procedure, I will absolutely be going to Dr. Reynolds.
