Finding a skilled plastic surgeon whom you trust is a difficult process, and if you have had a negative experience with a breast augmentation surgery, the last thing you may want to do is return to that same provider to have your breast augmentation surgery repaired. Dr. Yates sees patients from around the world in his Layton, UT offices who are in need of breast implant repair.
What Can Go Wrong with Breast Implants?
While every surgery carries risk, one of the most common reasons women come to Davis County for revision breast augmentation surgery is due to misplacement or misalignment of the implants. If the implants are not properly placed during the initial surgery, it can result in asymmetry of the breasts, misshapen breasts, or misalignment of the nipple. Revision surgery is required to correct one or both breasts to achieve the desired look.
Another problem that can occur that can cause the breast implant to be uncomfortably firm is capsular contracture. Capsular contracture is most often the result of less than sterile conditions in the operating room in which bacteria is introduced to the implant pocket and results in an infection and inflammation that damages the implant capsule.
It’s Not Your Fault If Something Went Wrong with Your Breast Implant
Some patients avoid seeking follow up treatment when something goes wrong because they do not want to return to the original surgeon, and they don’t know where to turn. They feel guilty for the money spent in getting the cosmetic procedure performed and regret that it will cost more to correct it.
