Complications with implants: Should I have them redone?

Missy27 Missy27
I got implants in a few years ago and have had one side redone because of complications twice. The other side deflated and I need to decide if I should do it again or just take them out. I definitely needed the addition after having my kids, but am so unsure what to do.

If it was me, I'd just take them out. Seem they've been more trouble than they are worth, not to mention ending up costing more over time.

But that's really something you need to decide on your own after speaking to your doctor and partner.

As a man, I can only suggest so much but personally, I would recommend looking into a breast lift instead of an implant. - C

Sounds troublesome. I sure hope that you won't suffer any health complications from having your breasts re-done. If there's health risks, I would take them out.

Thanks everyone. I had a lift with it the first time...just lost so much tissue after lots of nursing that implants too were the best option. I have pain in the one that has been redone twice because its built a lot of scar tissue. Other than that it's very miserable been two very different cup sizes. Nothing looks right and I am so limited in what I can wear. I would consider doing it again, smaller just because I know I don't have much tissue and because I know how bad things were before doing anything. It's just the expensive, time and the fear that I will be dealing with the same issues again that is holding me back. It happen over a year ago but I am starting to get very frustrated with it.

Implants have to be replaced/redone every ten years, so it's something you're going to go through no matter what. Perhaps a better option is to find a doctor who specializes in breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. You might have better success that way. (It's an educated guess, I have no idea what truly makes one plastic surgeon better than another.)
