Surgery Type: Breast Implant Revision
Incision: Prior incision used
After Photos Taken At: 12 months
Description: 38 year old female, 5′ 4″, 120 lbs. Patient presented with 3 year old prior breast augmentation surgery. She had desired a full B cup. Prior breast augmentation performed elsewhere resulted in a full C to a small D cup. Original implants were firm and unnatural looking, having been overfilled and placed in the subglandular position (on top of muscle). Dr. Burnett exchanged her original implants for smaller ones that were filled appropriately and placed the implants under the muscle. She is now happy with size, shape and softness.

If you have implants that were placed either cosmetically or for reconstruction and you are not happy with them, Dr. Burnett may be able to improve your results. As a woman and an artist, she has an innate sense of natural beauty and can in many cases help to design a better contour.

Whether you want to change your implants, or have them removed altogether and work with your natural breast tissue, it is important to communicate openly and honestly about your expectations. The various options unique to your situation will be discussed extensively with you.

Procedures for revision, removal or implant replacement or exchange are usually much easier to recover from than your original breast implant procedure. Whatever your situation, don’t feel like you are “stuck” with your past procedure. Improvement may be possible!
