Implant Exposure Question

Unread post by Malmal » Mon Feb 26, 2007 2:53 am

Has anyone on this board had their implant become exposed and then had to have another one put in? If so, did the new one stay covered or did you have problems with it down the line becoming exposed again. I've got my third and I'm hoping it won't happen again. The first one I had for about 8 years before it became exposed. The second one, I had for about 4 years before it became exposed. This one is on year No. 2.

I have had a plastic implant expose straight away and be replaced with a coral one which exposed after about 3 years and that was just replaced. This time they did a dermo fat graft, taking tissue from my hip. They decided that I can't take foreign bits and pieces so went with my own tissue instead. In between times I had various ops to try to cover the implants but none of them worked for long.
