Bad Pec Implants–Muscle Damage?

Bad Pec Implants–Muscle Damage?

Postby plasticality » Sat Jun 14, 2008 1:01 pm

:cry: Several years ago I had very large pec implants installed & placed just under my collarbone, recutangular in shape. They were not carved to my anatomy. They resulted in cleavage & looked like they were inserted upside down. My nipples were below the implants and looked caved in. So the Dr. inserted smaller implants in the area below the large implants to fill in that area.

The large implant on the right side has shifted down about 1", and the smaller one below it is riding on top of it. The pec muscle is stretched downward and is separating in several spots, about 1/2" gaps.

If I have the implants removed, will the muscles bounce back or will they need repair? Also the skin is really stretched, and will need to be cut & reshaped to rtighten it up, also nipples repositioned.

I don't trust the Dr. who did this to me, but if I can ever scrape up the $1000 for a revision it would be a miracle. Do you know of any way I could find someone who would do it pro bono? We are in dire financial straits right now.

If you have any information relevant to my predicament, please help. My immediate concern is what will happen if I wait much longer, resulting in permanent damage to the muscles.

What do you mean by BRO BONO also who was the Dr that did the op? A revision im sure will cost alot more then a grand. Removal of skin and prepositioning of the nipple will mean you with to put put under which that alone will cost close to a grand.

Pro bono is when a surgeon donates his surgical skills. The surgeon doesn't charge for revisions, just the the surgical facility fee. The surgeon is in Milwaukee, WI–not a pec implant expert & I hesitate to mention his name. He has proper board certification, but was obviously not well versed in the procedure.
