29 years ago I had a radical mastectomy...

29 years ago I had a radical mastectomy of the right breast and now I want to have implants and a mammoplasty of the left breast. Is it recommended at 62 years of age? What risks are there?

 Gerard Lambe

You have 2 issues. First is breast reconstruction of the right breast and second is surgery on the other side to achieve symmetry. Following mastectomy you will need skin as well as an implant to achieve a natural result. This will mean using skin and muscle from your back or from your tummy. This surgery on yuor left side is best done once this reconstruction has settled into its final shape and position. You would be best to pursue a full consultation with a reconstructive breast surgeon before moving forward. Age is not a limit only how fit you are. Best wishes

The modern breast implants do not need to be changed routinely unless there is a problem, such as capsular contracture distorting the implant or causing pain, rupture or leakage of silicone, infection.

I suffer from severe Hypertrophy...

I suffer from severe Hypertrophy of breast and have been told to have surgery through an anchor method reductive mammoplasty. Will I lose sensitivity in my nipples? If it is so, is there any other kind of intervention that would not leave me without sensitivity?

Dr. Gary Ross
Dr. Gary Ross Plastic surgeon Manchester
Sensation to the nipple can be affected although it depends on the amount of reduction and the amount the nipple needs to be lifted. It is extremely rare where the blood supply to the nipple and areola is left intact for there to be a loss of sensitivity. There is often a change but it is rare for patients undergoing breast reduction to complain of permanent sensory loss. If you need a free nipple areola graft for the reduction (in severe cases) then the amount of sensory return is unpredictable.
