FDA identifies high-risk groups. The new checklist from the FDA identifies groups of patients who are at a higher risk for developing BII after surgery. This includes breast cancer patients who have had or plan to have chemotherapy or radiation. Additionally, patients with diabetes or lupus are also at a higher risk of developing BII. The FDA warns that patients with active infections and women who are pregnant or are nursing should not undergo breast implant surgery. Smokers are also advised not to undergo surgery.

During your consultation regarding breast implant illness Chelmsford plastic surgeon Dr. David Lee will review your medical history and develop a surgical plan with your specific needs in mind to give you results that feel and look good.
You can only look your best if you feel your best
Many patients report alleviation of symptoms following breast implant removal. While this treatment is not a guarantee that symptoms will go away, it is the most common treatment for persistent BII symptoms. PURE Cosmetic Center offers different procedures to help you feel better while preserving the look you want, even after the implants are removed.
During this procedure, Dr. Lee removes your implant and scar tissue together, preventing any leakage from the implants into the body.
Fat Grafting is quickly becoming an alternative for many who still want to maintain volume after the implants are gone. This combination surgery uses liposuction to remove fat from a donor location on your body, processes the fat, and uses it to replace the volume lost from the implant removal. Fat Grafting cannot replace the entire volume of the implant, but it can create beautiful, symmetrical breasts with more volume than en bloc capsulectomy alone.
After removing the breast implant, Dr. Lee will reshape the breast tissue and skin with a breast lift. This procedure will give you a lifted look, ensuring that your breasts are symmetrical and in a more youthful position. This can be helpful to correct sagging or ptotic breasts where the nipples are pointed towards the ground.
The main reasons for getting breast implants are usually to increase volume and prevent sagging. Using a combination of both a breast lift and fat grafting, Dr. Lee can add shape, firmness, and size to your breasts. While implants typically have to be replaced every 10-15 years, this combination procedure uses your body’s own natural tissues and will be less likely to require revisional surgeries over the long term.
Dr. Lee is a strong believer that you can only look your best when you feel your best.
