Breast Augmentation and Lift - I had a breast lift with implants and galaflex mesh December 2021. One side failed, the mesh is palpable under that breast, and I’m sure it goes without saying but that side sits quite lower. Can it be repaired using the same mesh before my body absorbs it? I hope it is obvious why I am not asking the surgeon that did the surgery. Thank you for your time.



While it may be reasonable to want to use the same mesh if it hasn't absorbed, the concern is that if it fails again, did it fail because the mesh absorbed soon after the 2nd repair or was there a technical failure. Also, if the mesh didn't work the first time, you may want to consider using a different type of mesh or dermis. These are reasonable questions to ask your surgeon or new surgeon in person. This is potentially a complex problem with several potential solutions. Most importantly, you need to see a doctor that specializes in secondary breast augmentation or revision breast augmentation procedures.
