Botched

Botched Surgical Solutions - McAllen

Revision Cosmetic Surgery is highly complex. Many patients who suffer poor plastic surgery outcomes feel embarrassed and angry. Some may even be lucky to be alive. Below are some examples of patients who have suffered poor outcomes from other surgeons here in the US and also in Mexico that I have been able to help. For anyone contemplating cosmetic surgery, we advise that patients carefully research their surgeons to ensure they are truly experts in the area of cosmetic surgery, carefully review their before and after photos, and prioritize their personal safety – your body is not an experiment.

Before & After Photos

This 57 year-old woman from the Corpus Christi, Texas area presented to my cosmetic surgery clinic to fix her botched stomach. She had undergone SmartLipo laser liposuction in Austin, Texas and she felt deformed (note wrinkled and burned tissues in pre-op images from this lipo procedure). She is 5’4” tall and weighed 153 pounds. We discussed redo VASER liposuction throughout the abdomen with a complex abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure to release the underlying scar tissue and enhance her abdominal contour. As part of the procedure, we also discussed additional VASER liposuction throughout her flanks and back. Her results are shown 4 months after her operation (note her natural appearing belly button, smooth abdominal contour, and her low-lying scar). Her weight is down to 149 pounds, and she is thrilled with her cosmetic surgery results.

This 26 year-old woman from the McAllen, Texas area presented to my plastic surgery clinic seeking help to correct her symmastia. She is 5’9” and weighs 140 pounds. She had undergone prior inframammary subpectoral breast augmentation with Allergan 375cc high profile silicone gel implants by another board-certified general plastic surgeon. Her procedure was complicated by symmastia (over-dissection medially while dissecting the implant pocket and releasing the sternal attachments of the pectoralis muscle). The pre-operative photo above shows the symmastia (sometimes called “uniboob”) with kissing implants. This patient had undergone 5 prior failed repair attempts by her 1st surgeon. She now sought definitive repair. We discussed the complexity of symmastia repair. Historically, some surgeons would remove the subpectoral implants for 3 months, and then re-operate to place new implants in the subglandular position. This patient did not wish to have her implants removed or have additional staged procedures. We successfully performed a complex, single-stage symmastia repair with internal restructuring (capsulorrhaphy) reinforced with absorbable Vicryl™ mesh. We performed this procedure minimally invasively through her small, pre-existing inframammary scar using an advanced parachute technique. A scar revision was also performed. The patient was very compliant with her post-op instructions and use of the special bra. Her successful results are shown 3 months after her surgery, and she is extremely happy with her cosmetic surgery results!
