Tethering after explant

I was a 32A at age 21, got 350cc submuscular Allergan Natrelle silicone implants. I explanted Mid Dec. After 12 years and from day one, one side has tethering and a dent below. I was told to cup on day 7 but there is no improvement whatsoever. Nipples have adhesions in bottom half near implant scar. Any suggestion? Thx you

Thank you for sharing your question. Various treatments may improve the tethering and indentation you have, with a surgical scar revision, scar release, fat grafting being possibilities. I would recommend seeing a series of surgeons in consultation to discuss your concerns, and to get the best advice possible.
