I'm sorry but once again your questions are ones that need to be addressed by a Plastic Surgeon; specifically the one that you have selected to do your reconstruction. You may even need to consult more than one Plastic Surgeon in order to decide which type of reconstruction will be best for you. If you are planning reconstruction I suggest that you make an appointment to discuss all the options available to you. Regards ...
I had my exchange in March, and interestingly enough...I have never flexed in front of the mirror to see what my implants look like. I bet I do now!
I am thin, and my chest doesn't have a lot of fat on/around it, and my implants ripple a lot. I am having another surgery in the fall, for fat graphing, to help with the ripping, and to give me more "cleavage".
Overall, I am happy with my results, although, I know they will never look natural.
Your plastic surgeon will help you make the best decision for you.
Ok, I flexed...yes it does looks weird! Just wanted to let you know. It doesn't really bother me, and would have no idea how it would be avoided.
Hi AnnRaiz, I don't think it will end up with some breast deformity. I prefer breast implants to be placed under the muscle. I have very little breast tissue and have heard that people with no breast tissue or little breast tissue will get better results if the implants are placed under the muscle. And I will most probably be getting implants within couple of months. I have already talked to a surgeon Dr. Robert Backstein of Steeles Avenue Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Toronto, but haven't confirmed of getting the surgery. I will be having a meeting with him next week. So I will definitely ask this to him and will let you know regarding the implants placed under the muscle.
I just wanted to add, my implants are under my muscle. I still have abnormalities. I am thin, I don't know if that plays into it or not?. I have noticable rippling. I am having fat graphing in September, which I am hoping will help with that.
I was told that the reconstruction process may take a few steps.
