Hello all. I had my tissue expanders taken out on Thursday, and the implants went in. The whole day was odd. Before I got to the surgery center, the surgeon's nurse called me. Apparently the implant that I chose was not available. I had to go in early to choose another type or delay the surgery to the end of August.
I went in and looked at what the doctor thought would be best, and we went with that style. When I came out of surgery, I discovered that my breasts were uneven. My plastic surgeon didn't anticipate that my right area where I had the first mastectomy was cut deep against the chest wall. I still don't understand how he didn't know that! The right implant set in deeper than the left implant. Now they are uneven. My right implant is at least a cup size smaller and flatter.
I am so disappointed. My friend was told that in 6 months it should even itself out. If not, they can add filler or correct it with yet another surgery.
Has this happened to anyone. Help please. :(
