If a saline implant gets ruptured during replacement surgery, could this cause infection with new saline implant?
Compression Garment

Just curious. Still trying to make sense of the last five years of my life with an infected implant. I have had them removed, finally!! They look just awful. I look like the president of the le leche league. It's been just over 2 weeks and I'm still pretty sore. The surgical tape is very irritating to my skin. My nurse told me to take it off. I have a rash and my sports bras rest on my incisions. I hate to be a wuss but, this has been a very difficult recovery. Not looking forward to doing the lift procedure that he didn't do when he removed my implants. He mentioned being able to do it without being put to sleep. Is this possible? Sounds crazy to me. I'm obviously a weenie.
