Hello, I have slight tuberous breasts, nothing too serious but still reasonably bad and enough for me to want to make a change. However I practice karate multiple times a week as a 2nd Dan black belt and I was wondering if this could perhaps be dangerous for implants and what type of implants would…

Great question. And one you will probably get various answers from various plastic surgeons. Our general instructions for breast augmentation patients include: early gentle range-of-motion, 3 weeks before starting cardio or resistance workouts, and 2 months before chest impacts or direct pressure (water skiing, whitewater rafting, martial arts, amusement rides, parachute harnesses, etc.) More specifically karate practice could resume, without contact, at 3-4 weeks post-op, initially concentrating on muscles other than the pectorals. Finally, a past martial art patient did consider wear chest protectors during sparring. As far as implant type, we regularly recommend saline filled implants. All implants will leak over time, but re-operation for gel leakage is more difficult than replacing a saline implant. If you had a saline implant and sustained a serious breast impact, only sterile IV saline would be released. This should be harmless to to your body. Saline implants give excellent results and the Ideal Structure implant is designed to fell like silicone gel. These are excellent issues to discuss with your plastic surgeon during your consultation(s). Best Wishes

Without more information it is difficult to evaluate his situation and make recommendations. If he is only seeing one plastic surgeon, then consider one or more additional plastic surgery consultations. Best Wishes

You present a challenging question for plastic surgeons. Some will say that you must reach 18 years of age before having breast reduction. Others may base the timing on young women's individual maturity. Understanding and agreement of parents for legal minors is important. Stable breast size (plateau in growth) is another factor to consider. Based on your height, weight, bra size, and symptoms, you appear to have the indications for breast reduction surgery. Another important element is how much excessive breast tissue would be removed. This amount, and many other important issues would be discussed during your personal consultation and exam with the plastic surgeon. You sound like you've done your research and it is reasonable to talk with your parents and personal physician. (BTW- not all patients experience permanent numbness or inability to breast feed.) Time to make an appointment!

I had a breast augmentation and lift 10 weeks ago, had the stitches out and healed fine. I've been wearing nipple pasties with summer dresses but today when I peeled off a pastie it also peeled off a bit of the edge of my areola. You could see the pink skin, I dabbed a tissue over it and was barely…

In the situation you describe, the color will probably return over several months time. Superficial skin injury usually means pigment returns with time. Your plastic surgeon is in the best position to evaluate you, knowing the procedure he or she performed and having seen you post-op. We would certainly want to hear such questions if one of our patients had a concern.
