Which Breast Implants?
I was diagnosed in 2019 on right side, mastectomy was one and then implant was placed( silicon, mentor textured). After few weeks of implant placed I have some pressure and puffiness on side where implant was placed but I was told that it will go way as I heal and I took it positive and it has reduced as well. I may be over sensitive as it was foreign part.
Even after 4 years I still feel pressure, heaviness when I do long drive in car or I take long flight or spend much time in sun. But that is still bearable and I can manage.
Now this month I diagnosed on left side – luck is not in favor, what to do….:(
I met with plastic surgeon and I was suggested replace on both side silicon implant without textured. I was told that textured may cause some of side effects and life is 10 Years and again I may have to go to surgery. There are options which has more longevity like 30 to 40 years or so and i was offered to place new implant on on both side.
Here are some dillema, I have and not able to find answer in this tuff time.
1, Should I do on both side as I manageable problem with right side?
2, If I go with implant on both side which brand, type is better? As I want to avoid future surgery as I am almost over with 5 years life on right side implants.
If anybody has any suggestions please provide details or share experience. It will really help.
