A Restoring Reversal

Tag Archives: testimonials

For some, the reason for a decision to have cosmetic surgery is driven by the need to repair a past procedure. One example of this type of surgery is breast implant removal, which can become necessary due to faulty implant materials, a poorly executed procedure, or the changing preferences of the patient.

You may have heard or read about the unfortunate Poly Implant Prothèses (PIP) implant scare. These implants, made in France and used by 300,000 women around the world, have been found to be faulty and prone to bursting. Dr. Robert Colgrove is well prepared and qualified to assist women who are concerned about their PIP implants, as well as any other breast implant removal issue.

If you decide to have your implants removed, Dr. Colgrove will work with you to decide the best course of action for you. If your implants are ruptured, or if you have capsular contracture or capsular calcifications, you may also need to have the implant capsule removed through a surgery called capsulectomy.

Most breast implant removal surgeries take an hour or two under general anesthesia. However, most patients also need internal breastwork done. Dr. Colgrove uses an innovative technique to put the breast tissue back where it belongs. This is critical to having a full, high breast after implant removal.

Finally, depending on the amount of loose skin you have after the removal, you may also need a breast lift. The scar from mastopexy varies from patient to patient, depending on the degree of excess skin. Scarring will be kept to a minimum.

Recently, a patient of Dr. Colgrove shared her experience with breast implant removal at Vinings Surgery Center:

“In 2005 I had my first breast augmentation in my country, they got encapsulated, they hurt so much and they were very hard…no normal look. On 2009 I went back to my country to visit another doctor who advised me to do an ultrasound because I had PIP brand, they found out that the silicone immigrate and it was under my armpit (axilla). I was terrified because that brand was using an industrial silicone so it was urgent for me to replace them but I could not do it there. I wait because I did not have the money but my health was in dangerous. So after 2 years I decided to visit Dr. Robert Colgrove who explained procedure in detail and helped me to understand all the process; the nurses did a completion of the documents and provide all the information necessary what to do before and after surgery; they were so nice and compassionate; I was very nervous and terrified for what was going to happen. Almost 2 years since the surgery I feel great and my breasts look natural and perfect.”

I recently had a breast augmentation and liposuction by Dr. Colgrove. I was really nervous about the procedure, but Dr. Colgrove and his staff did an excellent job of making me feel at ease with the entire experience. After seeing my results, a couple of my friends have scheduled consultations to meet with Dr. Colgrove. I am very happy with my results and I highly recommend Dr. Colgrove to anyone seeking plastic surgery.

After an informed consultation, I received a series of lazer sublative treatments for my skin. All three procedures were administered with exceptional skill and care. I was impressed by the thoughtful instructions on how to get the best results from this procedure. The week following my 3rd sublative, I received injections from Dr. Colgrove, and he is wonderful! Once again, I was very well informed on how to receive the best possible results. Not rushed, but made to feel special. I’m thrilled with my results and would gladly recommend this practice to my dearest friend. Thank you Dr. Colgrove and staff!

I love Dr Colgrove and the staff at Vinings Surgery Center. Everyone there was warm and friendly throughout every step of the surgical process. I am so happy with my results, and I would feel comfortable sending all my friends and family there.

We love to hear happy words like these recent messages from our patients:

“THANK YOU! I had breast augmentation performed by Dr. Colgrove over 10 years ago. I just wanted to say that even after 10 years I am still receiving compliments and I am VERY happy with the lasting results of my procedure. I had a mammogram on Monday and the technician did not read my file letting her know that I had implants. She took one image and then asked if I had implants. She, as a mammogram technician, could not tell that I had implants and stated that my surgeon did an EXCEPTIONAL job. Thanks again!”

“I had a tummy tuck with Dr. Colgrove after having three children. I could not be happier with my results. My stretch marks are even gone! The staff was courteous, informative, and patient with all of my questions. Their office is clean and comfortable. It is not like going to the hospital for your surgery. I listened to what Dr. Colgrove told me to do before and after and got amazing results. I have little to no scarring and a flat tummy! Dr. Colgrove or his nurses were always available and returned my calls promptly with advice for me about any questions or concerns I had before and after surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Colgrove and have done so with many of my friends. In fact, if I have any other surgery, I will being going back to him. He’s the best!!!”
