In life, often it can be the little things that make a big difference. You don’t always need to do something in a big or flashy way in order to get noticed or effect a noticeable change.

This can also be applied to breast revision surgery.

Yes, replacing your tired or deflated saline breast implants with new, massively large and perky silicone ones may turn many heads but this may not be your intention. Maybe you just want a small difference that will provide you with some improvement but nothing fancy or outlandish.

Simply, doing some creative, prudent and skilled tweaking may just accomplish that intended goal.

The following patient is just such an example. She originally had saline implants placed in a submuscular pocket 12 years previously (done elsewhere) but due to a not very recent deflation of the left implant, decided to upgrade to silicone and go slightly larger. Her claimed bra size was a 34B but in reality, she was a 34C. A “C” cup size was her goal (photos A, C and E).

At surgery, she was found to have smooth surfaced moderate profile saline implants with a base size of 250cc filled to around 300cc on the right (the left was deflated). Pocket modifications were performed and then 340cc ultra-high profile smooth surfaced silicone breast implants were placed. Results are seen at 4 months (photos B, D and F)

Though the new implants are only 40cc larger than the ones they replaced (which is less than 3 tablespoons), the new implant configuration, silicone fill material and surgical pocket modifications led to breasts that look more natural, symmetrical, youthful and attractive – and at the “C” cup size that she was seeking.

If you are interested in pursuing breast revision surgery, such as an implant exchange or even a breast enlargement, you can contact our office to schedule your complimentary consultation.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
