PM with Breast implants

I had breast reconstruction surgery and have subpectoral implants.  I now need a PM.  Is there anyone that has fone thru this and can tell me about their experience?


good luck

I have not been through that, however my pacer is an unusual placement (submammary) and was done by a plastic surgeon.  I would highly recommend going that route. EP's know the heart, plastic surgeons know how to make things look and feel good. It took the stress off everyone. It was the easiest job of the day for the plastic surgeon and my ep could concentrate on what he does best. And I ended up with a super comfortable, nearly invisible pacer placement.
