Breast Implant Exchange to Silicone & Breast Lift

I am 5’9” with a long torso. When I was 22 years old, with AAA or basically nonexistent breasts, I had a Breast Augmentation with 350cc saline implants on top of the muscle. The implants gave me a full C cup. I was thrilled and it was the best decision I have ever made.

Fast forward 28 years and two children later, my breasts had fallen and my long torso looked very flat on top. After meeting with 6 different surgeons, I was told that I had two options. One was to replace the original implants with larger implants. The second, and more costly and riskier was to replace the implants and have a breast lift.

I dropped the idea altogether as the cost didn’t seem worth it when I could just wear a heavily padded bra that pushed my breasts back to their original position.

Fast forward another couple of years and I wanted to revisit the idea. Although my implants didn’t show any deterioration, I felt like I didn’t want to get any older and HAVE to replace them. I found Dr P through an email from one of the offices I had researched for another procedure.

I met with Dr P and he suggested that I have the implants replaced and a breast lift. I explained my hesitation regarding the healing time and additional cost for the breast lift. He understood and agreed that he could just do the replacement but wanted me to understand that the outcome may not be as desirable.

After a few more visits I felt so comfortable that I agreed to allow Dr P to make the final decision on the operating table. He agreed to start with just the implant revision and determine if that was sufficient. If not, I gave him permission to perform the breast lift too.

In the end he performed the breast lift in addition to replacing my implants and I am nothing but thrilled all over again!! My breasts look amazing – better than I ever thought they could! I now have 650cc Silicone implants and I love them. I realize now that the cost was so worth it. Dr P did an incredible and immaculate job! In summary, I would recommend Dr P to anyone for any area of his specialty. He’s an enthusiastic doctor who is a perfectionist, and quite particular about his work – traits you definitely want in your plastic surgeon. In addition, he is very attentive and has a great bedside manner. Finally, and maybe most importantly, he is proactive – he will listen to what you want and then let you know how he can make it happen. His team is also wonderful and so supportive!
