    Dimples from implants?

    Did or does anyone notice a dimple or dent that just appears one day? I don't feel anything though. Drs say I don't need a mammogram due to bilateral Mastectomy. So haven't had one since before that in 2015. Should I be concerned about them?

      I am not sure if we are talking about the same thing, but I have what I call hollow spots. I have it above my implants and one what would be on the cleavage side of one implant. My plastic surgeon suggested that I have a fat transfer to fill in the areas. It did help, but then they came back when I lost weight. I have decided not to do it again. I would suggest that you go see your plastic surgeon to see what he or she has to say. Good luck. Take care.

      I have an indentation in the back of my neck where a large Node went down.

      I would call the doctor's office and leave that as a question for somebody to call you back with his/her reply.

      I would call your plastic surgeon. Mine told me 3 years after receiving my implants, I will need an MRI to make sure they're not leaking. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

      Yes, I have a dimple which has gotten larger. The plastic surgeon is concerned, says it is a fold in the implant, and she is concerned about the skin thinning at that place since it is now bulging out a bit, making possible infection if it opens. She now sees me every six months instead of once a year. She does not want to replace it if not necessary. So go see your surgeon!
