Stroke Survivor under 35yrs old

February 2017 I suffered a stroke from a vertebral artery dissection at the age of 28; trauma to my neck from attempted strangulation. Stroke effected my whole right side from neck down, lost ability to walk , write, etc. I am fully functioning and regained all my physical abilities. I am hypertensive since age 15 (hereditary) & medicated for it . Is a under muscle boob job too risky?

Procedure: Breast Augmentation
Type: Question

If you made a complete recovery and are now fully functioning having regained all of your physical abilities I can't see why you could not have the surgery whether the implant is placed above or below the muscle.

Your previous and stroke will have no effect on doing a breast augmentation. You will need to be seen to discuss with you what you want with an enhancement. The position of the implant below the muscle has only slightly different risk than above, but not because of your previous illness.
