Breast Implants Broken 3 times

Breast Implant Revision

I had my first breast augmentation in 2005 at 18 years old with Eurosilicone breast implants 175 cc, left implant broke in 2013. I had a revision the same year and placed Allergan Natrelle 450 cc. Left implant broke again in 2016, revision done with Allergan Natrelle 615 cc. Now, for the third time, left implant is broken. Always placed under muscle, never had injuries. Why is this happening?

Please help need a breast reduction

Breast Reduction

I’m 36 I have 3 children. I have always had larger breasts even before kids. Now they are worse! My body frame is small I’m only 5ft 2. I have severe neck back and shoulder pain. Headaches everyday. Rashes under my breast. My hands get tingly. I went for a reduction in 2008 but I got scared and didn’t go. I’m kind of glad I didn’t because I ended up having my last child in 2016. I have Medicaid .

Ashley Amalfi, MD | Rochester, NY Wednesday, March 24, 2021
