Breast augmentation when performed by a trained plastic surgeon produces reliable results. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Matthew G. Stanwix in Richmond VA and Charlottesville VA is an expert in all forms of breast surgery and often receives referrals from other plastic surgeons for revisional breast surgery. His experience with difficult breast cases arise from all of the breast augmentations, lifts, reconstructions, and revisions he meticulously performed over the last eleven years. Dr. Stanwix has spoken nationally regarding breast surgery on numerous occasions, and his insight, advise, and expertise are frequently sought after.

Breast augmentation performed incorrectly can lead to devastating physical and mental compromises. Dr. Stanwix is aware of the importance for exellent results.  There are multiple reasons for this. Moreover, you should have results that match the discussion that you and your previous surgeon had. Revisional breast surgery is a more complex and intricate procedure to perform, and should be trusted only to breast surgery specialists like Dr. Stanwix. Dr. Stanwix performs replacement with implants or the cutting edge fat transfer.  For women who have had too many problems, too much pain, or just want their implants removed without losing the volume, then implant removal followed by fat transfer to the breasts may be best for you.  Fat transfer involves liposuction in one or more areas of the body and transfers that fat to the breasts.  It is minimally invasive, natural, "scarless", and lasts forever If you are unhappy with the results of your previous breast augmentation, then contact Dr. Stanwix today for a consultation.

Breast revisional surgery can take Dr. Stanwix from two to three hours to perform. He does this as an outpatient surgery so that you can go home the same day. Dr. Stanwix almost always can perform the surgery through your previous incisions. Occasionally, he may have to increase the size of the incisions, but this is worth the small extra scarring for a fabulous result.
