Could I have done something wrong in the healing process?

Q:

It is now 5 weeks after my surgery and I am still sore and feels raw inside. Is this common to still be very sore? I am back at work now and still having to get help and lay down a lot between my job as a hairstylist and house work, etc. Could I have done something wrong in the healing process? I had ruptured implants from previous implants of 25 years ago, and he said they had a lot of cleaning up to do to get the silicone out.

A:

Sandy,

 

 Removal of old silicone breast implants can be a rather extensive procedure to perform and recover from. Be patient and I am sure that you will get better with time. Please address your concerns with your surgeon as well. Best,
