Would a Heyer-Pudenz valve interfere with breast augmentation?


When I was born, I was premature, and also had hydrocephaly. I have a Heyer-Pudenz valve since then and never had it removed since it didn't present any issues afterwards.

Would this affect in having a breast augmentation?

Thanks

You will have to be examined by a board certified plastic surgeon to determine the route of the drain. If it is not involving the surgery area than you can have the procedure. Good luck. (more)
