Irregular or disproportionate breasts after implant surgery?

Irregular or disproportionate breasts after implant surgery?

Are your breast implants hard, uneven or causing pain?  If you answered yes, you may be experiencing symptoms of a capsular contracture.  This is a hardening and constriction of the breast implant capsule that causes the breasts to become hard, distorted, misshaped or oddly positioned.

Previously the corrective action was surgery.  However, we offer a new multi-energy therapy called Aspen that can sometimes correct the contracture without surgery.

Here are some commonly asked questions:

How does Aspen work for someone with a breast implant contracture?

The Aspen System uses a controlled sound wave energy that helps to soften the capsule and the surrounding scar tissue.  After numerous treatments your breast will soften and can move into the correw position.

Does Aspen hurt?

The treatment may feel uncomfortable for your 1st – 3rd session and are quite tolerable thereafter.  You may be a bit tender after a treatment and can reduce soreness by icing or taking ibuprofen if needed.

How many treatments do I need?

A total of 8 to 10 treatments are recommended to achieve the desired results for softening.  It is suggested to have two treatments a week.  On average, the treatment is completed within 60 minutes.

Our office is located in Troy, MI and the only practice in the state that offers the Aspen Therapy. Please call (248) 524-0620 today for a complimentary consultation or for additional information.

Breast Augmentation and Breastfeeding

How soon can I get a breast augment after stopping breastfeeding

“How soon after I stop breastfeeding can I get a breast augmentation?” –  that is a question that I receive quite regularly. Typically I advise my patients to wait at least 3 to 6 months after they stop breastfeeding, this will allow for the breast tissue to settle down from lactating and the breast to reach the final post partum size. Some women can still express a small amount of milk up to 9 months after breast feeding, that is completely normal but shouldn’t affect your decision to proceed with a breast augmentation. The best option is to schedule a consultation if you are truly considering an augment or other breast surgery to evaluate your options.

Get Your Confidence Back! Solutions For Breast Surgery Recovery

Over the past 25 years, I have performed many reconstructive breast surgeries. Some on women who have undergone breast surgery and some on women who have undergone a mastectomy – all with a common goal to restore their femininity and natural appearance by reconstructing their breasts.

New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast. There are often many options to consider and discuss with your doctor to determine what is best for you. After undergoing the surgical procedure, creating the nipple/areola is the final component to making your breast reconstruction complete; our permanent areola/nipple repigmentation techniques uses cosmetically tattooed micropigmentation as a way to restore the natural beauty of your breasts. It takes into consideration breast contour, areola position and creates the illusion of nipple protrusion factoring in your own skin tone and color.

The reconstruction of the nipple/areola helps to put the finishing touches on the new breast after a long journey in reconstruction. There are a number of factors that help determine which method of breast and nipple reconstruction are right for you. All of the options would be discussed during your consultation. For most mastectomy patients, breast reconstruction dramatically improves their appearance and quality of life following surgery.
