An attorney friend of mine called today because a person called his office and wanted to sue a Plastic Surgeon who used different sized implants for her augmentation.
Using different sized gel implants or inflating saline implants to different volumes is very common and not malpractice.
When I do a Louisville, KY breast augmentation , I would estimate that I use different volumes about 75% of the time. A lot of people are surprised to hear this but it shouldn’t come as too big of shock. Our right side and our left sides are different. One arm is longer, one foot bigger etc… and the same holds true for a woman’s breasts. To compensate for this we use different sized and shaped implants.
This isn’t malpractice, it’s a neccessity.
