This 30-year-old Chesapeake Virginia patient underwent breast augmentation with gel implants in another city five years ago. She is disappointed that her implants never settled to a more natural level. We discussed performing a capsulotomy procedure which is lowering the implants by opening the pocket. Reviewing her records, I found she had a type of gel implant that had a much higher rupture rate, in fact twice as high as other brands. I explained that although her implants were only five years old, with such a high rupture rate at 10 years it would be beneficial to exchange them for a longer lasting, more reliable gel implant. She exchanged her implants with capsulotomies which means lowering the implants by opening the pocket below. She is very happy with her soft, symmetric, and more natural result.

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.
