If you’ve found yourself dealing with complications after a breast augmentation procedure, you could be experiencing breast implant illness. This term refers to a number of different symptoms that can appear post-surgically, and Dr. Hovsepian is prepared to offer you a solution.
Correcting Implant Complications
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the world, and a big part of the reason for this is its reliability. The vast majority of patients who undergo breast augmentation are able to enjoy their results for years, if not decades to come. Some patients, however, can experience complications as a result of their breast augmentation procedure. These complications can take a variety of forms, but the general term to describe them is breast implant illness. This term doesn’t describe any single issue, but rather serves as a blanket term for a general set of complications that can sometimes arise. Raffi Hovsepian, M.D., is adept at isolating the cause of breast implant illness and is confident that he can offer you a solution that restores your quality of life.
How Do I Know I’m Dealing with Breast Implant Illness?
Given that this is a general term that doesn’t refer to a specific issue, but rather describes a collection of problems that can potentially arise, Dr. Hovsepian will meet with you personally to learn about your issues and get to the heart of your complications. Once he’s done this, he’ll be able to develop a treatment plan that enables him to correct the issues, so you can resume living your life to the fullest.
Some of the most common issues that indicate breast implant illness often include:
- Chest pain
- Hair loss
- Chronic pain
- Sleep disruption
- Neurological issues
Getting to the Heart of the Issue
During your consultation, Dr. Hovsepian will work closely with you to learn about the issues that brought you to him, as no two patients are the same. This means that no two treatment plans are ever identical. Dr. Raffi Hovsepian will talk you through your issues and collaborate with you on the development of your bespoke treatment plan.
En Bloc Removal
Breast implant removal is one of the possible ways to address breast implant illness. In some cases where capsular contracture is present, Dr. Hovsepian will utilize a technique known as the “en bloc” removal, which removes both the implant and the hardened tissue capsule that surrounds it.
In some cases, replacing your implants can be an effective way to address the issue. While there has been no definitive link shown between one type of implant and breast implant illness symptoms, it can still be possible to address the problem by switching over from one implant type to another.
