I Have a Breast Augmentation Mistake by Another Surgeon, Now What?

There were roughly 290,000 breast augmentation procedures performed in the United States in 2013, making it the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the country. The quality of the outcome of these procedures largely depends upon the artistry and expertise of the surgeon. Unfortunately, not all of these procedures go according to plan so some women experience problems with their breast implants after their surgery.


If you are one of the many women who are not happy with the results of your breast augmentation procedure or have suffered a breast augmentation mistake, there is no need to worry. Dr. Lakshman and the skilled staff at Pasadena Surgeons can correct whatever problem you are having and give your breasts the look that you have always wanted. Let’s take a look at some of the most common breast augmentation problems that women may experience:

Women that choose a smaller implant size typically do so to be discreet about undergoing corrective surgery. An unnatural appearance can happen if the professional does not take time to help select the best size option for the patient’s unique frame. Shape, volume, placement, and condition of existing tissue are factors that must be addressed in the first consultation.

Asymmetry, sagging, rippling, or wrinkling in appearance is not a problem that is going to correct without implant replacement. These characteristics often occur from over-inflation, displacement during insertion, or failure to diagnose a problem with elasticity. Fortunately, all of these conditions are simple to correct with a follow-up surgery.

A rupture or deflation can happen to an implant at any time following the initial procedure. A tear or hole can result from trauma to the shell that eventually causes the implant to deflate or collapse. Dr. Lakshman has the talent to perform removal of the damaged product and replacement with minimal scarring or additional complication.

A shift or displacement in the implant can happen from trauma or simply a poorly applied product. This is not only unsightly to look at, but also cause a great deal of pain in the patient. Correction can include replacement through a different incision site or a change of placement in relation to the muscle.

There is no reason to let another surgeon’s breast augmentation mistake continue to affect your health or happiness when there is a solution. If you are experiencing any breast augmentation mistakes, please Contact Dr. Lakshman’s office at Pasadena Surgeons today to schedule a consultation.
