My shoulder is hurting, and the burning in my back is unreal at times. (Left upper part of my back), The doctor that did the surgery is no longer in pratice. Should I just have them removed ! ? Help Please advise !

High Implants
Hi. Great question. It sounds like you may have what is called a Capsular Contracture of the implant. Also your implants are more than likely the old Silicone implants. You may have a rupture of the implant. In either case your implants would need to be removed. Depending on the findings during surgery you may be able to replace the implants with new ones at the same time. I would advise you to schedule a consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area. Best of luck.
