Performing breast implant revision requires outstanding surgical skills, a strong sense of artistry and a high level of finesse. Dr. Gardner excels in all three of these areas to treat patients' concerns with their previous breast augmentation results to give a more natural, aesthetic result.
Breast Implant Revision in Naples
Prior to breast implant revision, Dr. Paul Gardner meets with patients individually to understand their aesthetic concerns and goals for the breast implant revision procedure. Then, he develops a personalized approach to help meet their needs, which may entail implant removal or implant replacement, depending on the patient's condition. In addition, he may suggest altering the placement of the existing implant to yield more natural-looking breasts.
Dr. Gardner has expertise in treating a variety of concerns with unsatisfactory breast augmentation procedures, including bottoming out, capsular contracture, improper implant placement, implant rupture, wrinkling of the implant and unnatural appearance.
For patients who are suffering from severe medical complications or physical discomfort, Dr. Gardner often recommends the removal of their implants until their health has improved. Prioritizing health over cosmetics, Dr. Gardner strongly urges these patients to return to him for a secondary breast augmentation procedure after they have been treated for their medical complications.
Recovering from Breast Implant Revision
The recovery period for breast implant revision is dependent upon the patient's initial condition, including any breast augmentation complications that could compromise the patient's health. In most instances, patients report relief from previous complications, as well as a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, within two weeks of the procedure.
Following the procedure, Dr. Gardner will meet with patients frequently to ensure healthy recoveries. He may suggest patients wear a support garment to assist in the healing process. Committed to patient satisfaction, he and his surgical team make themselves available post-operatively to ensure patients receive the results they originally desired.
