Minor Symmastia Revision and Implant Exchange

I had my initial breast augmentation in January...

I had my initial breast augmentation in January 2015 and got 375cc Sientra high profile silicone implants in both breasts. I had developed symmastia pretty early on due to my original surgeon over-dissecting my breast pockets.

I decided to do my revision with Dr. Maggi. We decided to completely swap out the implants to Natrelle Inspira style SRF 385cc silicone implants. There isn't much of a size difference but the dimensions are slightly larger and the implant overall is softer. We also went for a symmastia correction with internal bra.

The surgery itself took about 4 hours because it's a very complicated surgery. The healing process was more painful than my first breast augmentation, but this is normal because I have internal sutures.

Wearing a thong bra for two months is not ideal and it's hard to find clothes to cover it completely, but well worth getting my symmastia repaired and the results are perfect!

I got my first breast augmentation in January 2015 and went from a 32A to a 32DD with Sientra 375ccs high profile silicone implants. I had had an initial consultation with Dr. Maggi because I had several friends who were very happy with their augmentations from him. I liked him but the pricing was more than I could afford at the time, so I looked elsewhere. I still did my thorough research and went with a different doctor who had awesome before and after pictures and great bedside manner. Well, I got symmastia pretty early on after surgery, likely because he just over-dissected my breast pockets. I wasn't aware that I had symmastia at the time, but my breasts seemed to sit a little low and looked like big balls on my chest. This doctor only saw me once, the day after surgery and 6 months later to take after pictures, and never mentioned to me that I had developed symmastia in my 6 month follow up. This is the reason I went back to Dr. Maggi a year and a half later, and for aesthetic reasons concerning the look of my implants. He told me I had symmastia and said he could fix the overall look of them into something more natural. I trusted his opinion and decided I would not go anywhere else but Dr. Maggi to fix my implants, like I should've gone with him for my initial procedure. Dr. Maggi is extremely meticulous and highly skilled. He was able to tell me his exact plan for my revision down to the millimeter of what he would do. I felt very confident in his hands and absolutely LOVE his staff! His staff is with you the entire way, so you always know who you're dealing with, even the people who are in the surgical room. I am so incredibly satisfied with my results so far. I didn't even realize how bad my breasts looked in comparison to how much more natural looking they are now and not having to lose any ccs!
