The most common problem with breast augmentation is capsular contracture.
This occurs if the scar or capsule around the implant begins to tighten. This squeezing of the soft implant can cause the breast to feel hard. Capsular contracture sometimes requires either removal or "scoring" of the scar tissue, or perhaps removal or replacement of the implant. Since breast augmentation is one of the most popular operations performed, many women may experience this complication. Dr. Calvert customizes your operation for you based on your specific needs and desires.
One of the most important decisions more and more women are making every day is to have breast augmentation, a procedure to enhance the size of your breasts by using breast implants. Advances in breast implant technology and surgical techniques are making breast augmentation a popular option among women of all ages that desire a change in the way they look. The decision to undergo breast augmentation may result in a more flattering and better proportioned figure, more clothing options, and may enhance your confidence and self-esteem.
Many women have questions about placement of the implant under the muscle or over the muscle, as well as what type of approach should be used to place the implant. These questions are best answered in an individual consultation with Dr. Calvert.
"I strive to produce an enhanced, natural look by balancing the capabilities of the surgical techniques with the woman's desires. Since each woman is unique, each operation must be tailored to produce the best possible outcome for each patient." - Dr. Jay Calvert
