Testimonial for Breast Augmentation

Words cannot begin to express how happy I am with the results of my surgery and what a wonderful surgeon you are. What you were able to do is simply amazing! I never dreamed that the difference would be this dramatic! My entire experience with you and your staff was also terrific. I also want to thank you for spending so much time with me during my consultations and before and after the surgery.

“It is obvious how much you care about your patients and what you do.

“You have changed my life in such a positive way. I simply cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you’ve done.”

Corrective Secondary Breast Augmentation Reasons

Women may need revisional or corrective breast augmentation surgery due to:

  • Discomfort with implants – over time you may become uncomfortable with your implants and want them removed, downsized or replaced with a different type of breast implant such as silicone-gel which may have a more natural feel.
  • Malposition – over time implants can shift, one may sit higher or lower than the other, or they may become too high, too low, too close, or too far apart. These revisions require precise recreation of the implant pocket to a more optimal position. Occasionally an implant replacement is required, but in some cases the same implant can be used..
  • Gravity, Stretching or Unevenness – breast implants that are placed in front of the muscle can minimize scars (because the implant fills up the empty saggy breast envelope and obviates the need for a lift)however, the breast implants can fall or stretch the breast tissue downward over time, and render the implants visible and palpable. This can happen with sub muscular implants as well, if a large implant is used on a thin small breasted patient.
  • Rupture – although rarely, breast implants can rupture and need to be replaced.
  • Capsular Contracture – in the rare case that a tightening of the natural capsule your body forms around the implant occurs, the capsule may need to be loosened or removed to provide a more pliable pocket in which the implant can be positioned.

Through revisional breast augmentation surgery, you can improve on the shape, symmetry and position of your existing breast implants.

FAQs for Revisional and Corrective Breast Augmentation

Every breast augmentation patient needs to accept the remote possibility of needing a revision at some point in her life after the initial augmentation. Issues that tend to increase this risk are implant placement above the muscle, very large volume implants (because they are heavy), and under filling of saline implants. However, there are factors that are beyond the surgeon’s control and are unpredictable, such as unusually stretchy tissue or asymmetric chest walls that make symmetric breast augmentation impossible. Equally unpredictable are the effects of gravity, pregnancies, weight gain/loss and breastfeeding.

Dr. Pautler is dedicated to being objective, reassuring, professional and sympathetic to a patient’s disappointment and frustration with her previous cosmetic surgery experience. Dr. Pautler takes the time to educate each patient on all procedures and answer any questions she may have.

    Amazing Person

    "Dr. Paulter is an amazing person. I wanted to have a breast augmentation but was nervous. She took the time to fully explain everything to me. I never felt as if a question was stupid or not worth her time. I quickly realized that I had found the right doctor. My surgery went very well, thanks to the expert hands of Dr. Paulter. The first few days of my recovery were as expected. Then I noticed that my incisions were becoming increasingly itchy. On a Saturday morning, I called the number Dr. Paulter had given me. A little while later, she met me in her office. I was having a rare allergic reaction to the adhesive. She was able to treat me and told me to come into the office on Monday. I was very grateful for this weekend visit with her. Much to my surprise, I got a phone call the next day, from Dr. Paulter. It was a Sunday! She was calling to see how I was feeling. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. I wish more doctors were as caring and as compassionate as her.”

    She is absolutely amazing!

    "I recently went to Dr. Pautler to have my first breast augmentation back in May 2017. Dr. Pautler is such an amazing women and surgeon. From the moment I walked into her office for my consultation to my last follow up appointment, every one in her office was so welcoming, professional, and made my experience so much better. She took a lot of time with me during our initial consultation to discuss all of my options. She was so honest with me from the get go and I instantly felt comfortable putting my personal appearance into her hands. I never once felt that she tried to pressure me into doing anything that I was not comfortable with. Her bedside manner is absolutely amazing...and I am a nurse who works on a post surgical unit and frequently see how surgeons do not always have the best bedside manner. The staff in her office are so friendly and remember you when you come in for all of your appointments...and that meant a lot to me that I was not just another patient. During my pre-op and post op stages at the hospital, all of the staff had great things to say about her. They often refer to her as "amazing", which made me feel so good! I am now completely healed from the surgery, and I could not be happier with my results. She made me feel so much better about my physical appearance and I have so much more confidence now thanks to her!”

    Excellent surgeon and friendly, professional staff.

    "Worth the long drive. The local surgeons close to me have 2 hour long office waits, incompetent staff, change pricing and hospital locations at zero hour, and don't explain everything well. Dr. Pautler came recommended to me and I'm glad she was.”

    Arm liposuction - I can wear every dress I'd always wanted to

    "A lifetime of being thin and in shape and still... fat arms. At age 44 I was approaching 1,000 barre classes (yay!) and I told myself, if I still hate my arms after 1,000 barre classes, I will get the arm lipo. I had received quotes for the procedure twice before but chickened out - also my husband and even plastic surgeon has said 'you're thin and in great shape. You don't need it'”

    Absolutely the BEST Experience

    "I was on the fence with going through a Breast Augmentation for a few years. There were obvious reasons on why I wanted one, but I knew that going through with this surgery would need to be done at the best time with the best doctor. After visiting a few doctors that I was uncomfortable with, someone I knew personally suggested trying her doctor, Dr. Pautler. I immediately called the office...”
