Breast implant revision; searching for a doctor in Florida?

Breast revision after multiple capsular contractors.
This is a problem I have a lot of experience treating. My practice is primarily breast reconstruction and cosmetic breast surgery. Strattice, Belladerm, and other acellular dermal matrices can help tremendously when dealing with recurrent capsular contractures. Feel free to call my office for a consultation.
Ending Capsular Contracture In Breast Augmentation Revision
There are many factors that play into capsular contracture. I commonly see patients with multiple revisions that have seen doctors that place Stratice as a solution. They end up in my office when the strait causes further problems such as skin adhesions and further fibrosis. I do not recommend placing Stratice in the breast at all. Although a physical exam is necessary to give definitive advice, I would probably handle your case with fat grafting to restore soft tissue and counter some of the fibrosis you have suffered and placing a new implant in a Cold-Subfascial Plane. The subfascial plane has the lowest incidence of capsular contracture and combined with fat grafting (which happens to contain activated stem cells) I have had great success. This works well on women with Strattice complications as well. I would definitely recommend avoiding further foreign bodies in your breast like Stratice. I hope this helps!
All the best,
