Dr. Miner was my surgeon for breast augmentation around 1988 or 1989. My right breast had some hardening/encapsulating a year or so later. There was actually a chordlike tissue pulling the encapsulated sac upward/outward. The left side of the natural pocket for the dow implant started creating a hole (implants on top ofmuscle) just under or near the breast line/fold. I'm hoping to find out what I can do at this point to correctt the right side. I'm hoping that a fatty pocket atop my right collarbone is fat and not silicone somehow. I also have a fatty-like substance in the right bicep area. I do not massage the implants as the right side is just too hard and fear tearing the left side pocket more. Hope that helps and is not too confusing. May I please know the cost, I am currently unemployed but worry if I donot do something about this right side it will just continue tightening up, it is painful during my menstrual cycle. Thanks, Jean
Answer from Dr. Glynn Bolitho
Thank you for contacting our office. Have you had an MRI to confirm rupture of your implants or try to identify the areas that you think may be fat deposits?
It sounds like we would need to see you in the office for a consultation. It would be difficult to give you advice otherwise, other than maybe getting an MRI.
If you would like to schedule a consultation I would be happy to help you.
