This 36-year-old woman from Virginia Beach had 400cc saline breast implants for well over 10 years.  She came for a consultation to discuss her desire for larger implants.  We had a very thorough discussion about the types of implants available and what would give her the look she desired.  Because she was very thin, I explained that a larger saline implant may cause visible rippling especially on the side of her breasts.  The likelihood of this could be decreased by placing gel implants.  However, she was very happy with her saline implants, she just wanted them larger.  Placing implants over 400cc requires careful planning and discussion.  To give her the best result, I felt that we would also need to create more space for the larger implants by opening the pocket that her existing implants filled.  This procedure, called a capsulotomy, gives the larger implants more room and a softer feel.  To avoid increasing the width of her breast, I was careful to avoid opening the pocket to the side, and we chose a high profile 610cc implant.  These photos were taken 4 months after her procedure and she is very happy with not only her new size, but the shape as well.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
