    Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)

    Side Effects

    I blame the plastic surgeon for my pain, who let'as someone go 6 months with an infection. I had it all, capsular contraction, infection and massive scar tissue. No fake boob is worth that but congratulation to those who were successful.
