Ask the Doctor-Can I Still Have Natural Reconstruction After Implants?

This week, James E. Craigie, MD, of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your question.

Question: I had a double mastectomy and final saline implants on February 26 2016. Dr has to redo because breasts aren’t symmetrical. I have felt lousy since surgery.

After reading a forum of women experiencing side effects with implants rash fatigue, pain in shoulders arms and back.

I was wondering if I can still have natural breast reconstruction after having implants. Please let me know at your earliest convenience. Thank you

Answer: We have done natural reconstruction on hundreds of women who started with implants, so don’t despair.The easiest way to proceed would be for us to call you and discuss your situation in more detail, if you wish.
