26 Years Old, Implant Removal After Getting Capsular Contracture Twice - Dallas, TX

Dr. Teotia is a phenomenal plastic surgeon who saved my body from a disagreeing bag of plastic, and gave me back my sense of sexuality.

As women we all want to feel sexy, although that term is relative, in this particular case I THOUGHT having larger breasts would enhance my self confidence. But that simple assumption in of itself is exactly what was wrong with my state of mind at the time of my first procedure. I digress...

In 2014, I had small,moderate profile gummy implants put in behind the muscle by a doctor in Houston named Dr. Basu. (Not the nicest or warmest doctor in the world, but I just figured that was normal for a plastic surgeon) At first, I was pleased with the outcome, but 6 months later I developed capsular contracture on my right breast. I went back to Houston to have it fixed, except this time Dr. Basu did not take any steps to reassure capsular contracture did not happen again. He did not make a new pocket, he did not replace the smooth implant with a textured implant, and he did not put me on any of the preventative medications. Predictably so, I developed it again 9 months later on the same breast. Having a hard, lopsided breast for the second time was far from ideal, and in my opinion, completely unacceptable. And considering Capsular contracture only happens to about 10-15% of patients, I was at my whits end when it happened to me twice. I began to abhor my own breasts because of how they felt and looked, which literally robbed me of my self confidence. Naturally, that's when I decided I needed to completely remove them. There were so many terrifying conundrums that attributed my choice to impede this process as long as possible. But finally after concluding that I didn't really have a choice, I knew finding the best doctor was imperative, and that's when I found Dr. Teotia. I was a complete mess and deeply discouraged of any positive outcome from removing my implants, but when I sat down with Dr. Teotia, I knew she was going to be the surgeon I was going to use. She explained to me that I was a good candidate for the removal of breast implants after considering my age, the length of time I had them for, their size, and not having had any children. She discussed openly with me her plans, her expectations, and her concerns, and after she assessed my issue, she gave me a step by step breakdown of what she proposed to do the day of surgery. Removing your breast implants is a scary procedure, simply because there is never a guarantee and every body and breast is different, but I felt confident in her warm, encouraging words. I knew she had the experience with implant removal, and after about 20 minutes of detailed conversation, I scheduled my appointment.

I am now 5 weeks post op and could not feel BETTER! I simply cannot emphasize enough how GOOD I feel. I was so afraid that my breasts were going to look like deflated balloons, but boy let me tell you, I LOVE the way my natural breasts look, and feels. My right breast needed a little more work, so that side is going to take a bit longer to heal and "fluff", but I have no complaints. My scars are also disappearing very quickly. I have the deepest gratitude for Dr. Teotia not only for the way she handled and analyzed my problem, but for her self confidence in her own practice. I feel MORE confident now, than I did before I had my implants put in. I actually want to wear low cut shirts and show off my natural breasts, sex is ecstasy again (sorry if that's tmi, but that was a huge factor), I can sleep like a child once more, and I look better in clothes! From her deeply needed encouraging words and reassurance, to her incredible skillfulness in the surgery room, I cannot recommend this surgeon to enough people, she's amazing. Thank you Thank you Thank you Dr. Teotia for allowing me to feel alive again!
