Capsular contracture is one of the key reasons why some breast implant surgeries may fail at any point of time. This condition can be addressed with breast revision surgery, which is usually a more complex procedure as compared to the primary breast augmentation. Only an experienced and highly qualified cosmetic surgeon should ideally perform a breast revision procedure.
Dr. Eugene Kim is a double board certified plastic surgeon providing advanced cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, including breast revision. Along with his experienced team, Dr. Kim is committed to achieving outstanding results and total patient satisfaction in every procedure. He receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities.
As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Kim believes in customizing the surgical procedure to suit the individual needs of a patient. Particularly in a case of capsular contracture, where breast revision surgery must be performed, it is important to evaluate the patient’s breast anatomy, her personal aesthetic goals, and her general health condition.
Based on these parameters, the surgeon may help the patient make appropriate choices of new breast implants and their placement position. Dr. Kim will devise a customized surgical plan based on these inputs in order to achieve results that are closest possible to the patient’s unique aesthetic needs and aspirations.
Emphasis on Educating the Patient
Dr. Eugene Kim focuses on patient education as the most important part of the initial consultation process. For a complex procedure such as breast revision surgery following capsular contracture, it is important that the patient should know all the pros and cons of different treatment options. If the patient is fully aware of all aspects, she would be in a much better position to make informed choices.
Dr. Kim will listen attentively to the patient’s concerns during such consultation process, and spend as much time as necessary to ensure that she understands what to expect before, during and after the procedure. Patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby areas, who seek a reputed plastic surgeon for capsular contracture surgery may consult with Dr. Kim.
