He continues to offer a corrective service to many patients, however he does not offer such revisional surgery for at least two years following the initial operation. This allows time for the tissues to settle and any unresolved issues between the patient and the original surgeon to be clarified.
Beyond complications from the initial operation, breast implants can develop problems over time. These problems include capsular contracture, breast implant rupture, a very rare white blood cell malignancy called ALCL and a more recently recognised condition known as Breast Implant Illness. Each of these conditions (detailed below) need to be treated differently after full radiological and clinical assessment. Finally, as patients age, their body shape changes and what was right for them ten or twenty years earlier may not be right for them now. Breast implants are never life-long and therefore many patients request revisional breast surgery to improve the look of their breasts to a more age-appropriate shape and size.
