You and your surgeon's decision to use implants of that size and profile means that you and your surgeon are in agreement that your results are prone to a 25% risk of complications
You and your surgeon's decision to use implants of that size and profile means that you and your surgeon are in agreement that your results are prone to a 25% risk of complications that will lead to a reoperation within three years of your surgery. Did you know that? Were you not told that by your doctor? The very problems you are worried about, dropout and malposition, are much more likely with your choice of implants, along with capsular contracture, double bubble, and unpredictable tissue thinning.
With a 29 inch ribcage circumference and a bwd of 12 cm, you are best suited with an intermediate profile 325 cc implant. Sound too small? Like other women, the implants needed to produce your desired appearance puts you at high risk for problems, both early and late term. You should know this so you can make better decisions. So many patients ask questions after their surgery, wondering why it doesn't look right. Most want to know what went wrong. You have a chance to prevent these problems by making better choices. Best of luck.
