Experience with bottoming out revision?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am finally booked in to have my bottomed our implants fixed, I am seeing Dr Theo Birch here on the Sunshine Coast in February.

Has anyone else had experience with bottoming out repair?

Also any info on Dr Birch? I have had a hard time finding much on him, he was very professional at my consult though and is well qualified. 

I am super nervous about it !

Oh Cornflakegirl I am sorry to hear your boobs have bottomed out. The BA journey is not always easy for some ladies. My heart goes out to you.  Keep us posted with your journey.

Thank you! I am trying to be positive about my next surgery, fingers crossed!

sorry to hear you have had these complications - Ive ehard good things about Dr Birch but I dont have any first hand experience.
I do know its not uncommon to bottom out with smooth implants - what did Dr Birch propose to repair the bottoming out

Thanks Fox, I really liked him at the consult, he was very informative and I preferred him over Dr Phil Richardson, it’s just been hard to get much feed back on him especially for revisions. 

He wants to keep the same implant but move my pocket higher and place them completely behind the muscle (he believes they are either duel plane or overs currently) and stitching the skin to my ribs. 

He said it’s unlikely it will happen again but I am still concerned.

I have asked the practice to send me some before and after a as I forgot to ask at the consult and I also want to know their revision policy.

I had surgery with Dr Birch and I hate my boobs. They are so uneven and unsymmetrical. I complained from 3 months post op that something was wrong. My right breast sits much lower and hurts all the time. I believe it has either stretched or bottomed out. I wish I’d never met him. I would not recommend him to anyone.

I can recommend Dr Layt or Dr Stradwick for revision surgery in QLD. They are both very good surgeons.

Dr Cheng would be another choice to look into

Sorry you had such a bad experience! I hope you can get them fixed.

So far mine are holding up nicely so fingers crossed
