We Are Now Offering Virtual Consultations. Please Request a Consultation Online.


During this unsettling time, we wanted to reach out to our patients and reassure you of our commitment to maintaining a safe, clean environment at Noble Cosmetic Surgery because it has been our top priority. Additionally, please take note of the following:
  • As a cosmetic medicine facility, we typically do not service sick patients. Our patients elect to have procedures that are not medically necessary, so your risk of running into an ill patient is lower than that of other healthcare facilities.
  • Our surgeries and other treatments are performed in our private facilities used purely for elective treatments.
We continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and are actively following the guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) as well as our local, state and federal government agencies. Our usual guidelines include universal precautions, frequent handwashing, and frequent sanitizing of all patient areas. For the most up-to-date information, please check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website about this evolving situation, how to reduce the risk of spreading illness, travel health notices, and more.

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Currently, as the Coronavirus is thought to spread mainly from person to person, we have now adopted several enhanced safety measures to decrease the risk of exposure to you and the community which include the following:
  • Please wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use the hand sanitizers provided when you enter our offices.
  • If you feel unwell or anyone in your household may have been exposed to COVID-19 through travel or attendance at large gatherings less than two weeks ago, please call us at your earliest convenience so we can reschedule you!
  • If you need to cough or sneeze, do so into the crease of your elbow and immediately wash your hands.
  • Know the symptoms of Coronavirus: tiredness, fever, weakness, shortness of breath, and diarrhea. This virus is lower respiratory focused, so you may not have upper respiratory symptoms like a runny nose, sore throat, and congestion.
  • Take these additional preventive actions to stop the spread of germs: wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
We hope each of you will stay safe & healthy as we navigate this complex situation together.

Sincerely,
Dr. Obasi & the staff at Noble Cosmetic Surgery

Removal of Breast Implant for Capsular Contracture in Plano

Breast augmentation may be elected to increase bust size or even out asymmetrical breasts. Following surgery, women often find that their clothes fit more naturally and they get a confidence boost. Dr. Patrick Obasi of Noble Cosmetic Surgery in Plano, TX understands that women want to feel good about the way they look. He knows instances may arise that require removal of breast implants.

Removal of breast implant

Patients may choose or need to have breast implants removed for various reasons. Sometimes it is a personal choice in no longer wanting implants or desiring a different size. Other times it may be medically necessary due to capsular contracture.

WHAT IS CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE?

A breast implant is a foreign object. Each body responds differently to having a foreign object present. After the implant is placed, scar tissue forms a capsule around it. In some instances, this capsule may tighten or contract. How much or how little tightening occurs is unpredictable. It varies from patient to patient, and may not happen at all. It may occur in one or both breasts. If contracting does happen, it can cause the following problems.

  • Hardening of the breast
  • Distortion or wrinkling of the breast
  • Pain
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Displacement of the breast implant

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Surgical removal of the implant is the usual method of treatment for a capsular contracture. When possible, the surgeon uses the original incision site to remove the implant. Sometimes a larger incision is needed. Once the implant has been removed, the capsule of scar tissue is excised as well. The procedure can be completed with or without the placement of new implants or a breast lift.

If you are experiencing pain or distortion around your implant, contact Dr. Obasi for breast implant removal. Schedule your appointment by calling 214 - 617-1672.
