Breast Augmentation Revision In Houston

The US FDA’s recent pronouncements regarding the safety of silicone breast implants sent waves of conversation throughout the plastic surgery community regarding the future of breast augmentation surgery.  Since the 1990’s when the FDA prohibited the sale silicone breast implants over patient safety concerns, the best minds in medical science  performed exhaustive investigations into the silicone breast implant; the amount of time, energy and money spent on this analysis has made the silicone breast implant, hands down, the most studied medical device in human history to date.  During the time when silicone breast implants were unavailable, the demand for breast augmentation surgery was filled by the saline breast implant.  However, the silicone implant feels much more like natural breast tissue than saline, and silicone is less likely to produce a rippling effect under the skin.  For some patients who have undergone breast augmentation, the FDA’s statements on the safety and efficacy of silicone have made some women seek to have their saline implants removed (i.e., explanted) and swapped for silicone.  This process is called breast augmentation revision surgery, and exchanging saline for silicone implants is merely one reason one would undergo a breast augmentation revision surgery.  Before choosing a surgeon, be sure to determine that s/he is not only experienced with breast augmentation, but also with revision procedures.  Not all plastic surgeons have extensive experience in this area, so be sure to ask how many revisions surgeries s/he performs each year, and ask to see before and after photographs of those revision surgeries.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.
