Breast reduction

I think my breast implants causing my blood pressure to go up. I got my boobs done in 2009 and 7 years later I only gained like 10 lbs and now my blood pressure is elevated. Im currently on bp meds. I did have size C cups prior and went back and got a double d. I’m only 125 lbs and no none in my family takes bo meds. Should I get them out or is it the size for my small frame? Is this a factor?

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. Most likely factors other than your implants are at play for your high blood pressure as you would have developed it immediately after your breast augmentation rather than 7 years later. Most patients with high blood pressure develop it idiopathically - for no specific reason, largely their genetic makeup. Hope this helps.

It is unlikely that your implants are causing your hypertension. You should discuss this with your pcp to be sure your blood pressure is under good control and if there is any underlying cause for it.
