Answer Snippet
What is the hard lump in my right breast after breast reduction/uplift? Will it go?
Hard lump after breast reduction
Aug 31, 2014
The most likely cause of what you are describing is fat necrosis or dead fat cells from lack of a good blood supply to the area. Small areas of fat necrosis may eventually “melt” but larger areas will likely have a residual lump that can be surgically removed.Other causes of the lump may be a cyst, or even breast cancer, though highly unlikely, which need to be excised.
Can I remove saline implants that are 12 years old?
Removing 12 year old saline implants

Even though this seems like a simple question, there are many issues to address. The simple answer is “yes”. All implants, regardless of age can be removed. If there is a hard capsule that formed around the implants, it may also need to be removed. Also, removal of the implants may require a breast lift procedure to avoid a droopy or deflated look.Saline implants can often be removed under local anesthesia in an office setting but it wouldn’t be possible to also remove a hardened scar tissue…
Can you help me determine if a breast augmentation versus a lift would work well for me?
Valerie J. Ablaza, MD

The best way to assess your need for a breast lift is to look at your nipple position when your arms are at your side. Breast augmentation alone can elevate nipple position 1-1.5 cm. The decision to have a lift with an augmentation is also dependent on your ultimate goal for implant positioning. Without a lift, the implant position will be lower.
