Breast Implant Revision due to pain

I had a breast augmentation in 2014. The implants weren’t a good size, nor did the profile look good. In fact, they were too wide and flat ( like pancakes). I had to have them removed because of discomfort and dissatisfaction overall. My implants were round and textured and I had severe pain, especially when I wasn’t wearing a bra. I was unable to lean forward, as the left breast felt rippled near the cleavage line and I had major regrets of ever having breast augmentation surgery.

Dr. Knoll was open and honest with me. She said, she may not be able to take away all of the pain, however she could create a better look for me based on what I wanted, and she would try her best to give me great results ( she was confident and her work reflects her skill)! I wanted a high profile, larger overall implant size and I was praying to be pain free once healed. I started out 400cc moderate and my revision is 500cc high profile. They do not look fake- they look great, and best of all, she adjusted the left side to match my right side (very even now) and I have 0 pain after healing. I have waited over six months to provide a review and I cannot tell you how awesome my surgeon is!

I can say with great confidence that a revision surgery is much faster healing and much less painful than the initial submuscular implants being placed. I honestly had pretty intense pain for about three weeks the first time I had breast augmentation surgery!

Dr. Knoll is pretty amazing. She is highly skilled and she has a wonderful personality! Prior to surgery, she took the time to answer all the questions I had, and she assured me that the surgery would go very well – and it did! She is trained in both the United States (Yale) and in Germany– I actually saw her for botox and the breast augmentation – great results each time. Dr. Knoll’s bedside manner is awesome, she is sweet, funny, and has the ability to put your fears at ease the day of surgery- it’s clear that the people she performs surgery with have a high level of respect for her! I was her first patient in the morning and she told me, she would check on me in recovery, which she did; she stopped by two times before proceeding to the next patient. At follow up appointments she was awesome and I really am pleased with the results from our first visit through now, 6 months post-op. Dr. Knoll speaks English and German. I don’t speak German and I didn’t feel lost while communication with her. I love her and I would do this all over again- you’re in good hands with her.
