Botched Breast Implants in Washington DC
- Inexperience, lack of skill and poor judgment can lead a surgeon to have a botched result.
- Oftentimes it is very difficult to correct botched results; Dr. Rad prides himself in helping patients undo disfigurement and achieve beautiful symmetry.
- Oftentimes tissue reconstruction is needed and the *DIEP Flap Reconstruction* is Dr. Rad’s preferred method.
When there is a paucity of abdominal fat, the LSGAP “Love Handle” Flap is Dr. Rad’s preferred second method.
In unique cases, when neither the DIEP flap nor the LSGAP flap is an option, then the TDAP Flap over a Teardrop Silicone Implant can be effective.

What Patients Are Saying
“We consulted with three plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Rad for my 17 year old son’s rhinoplasty and chin implant in March 2017. From the first meeting, we felt confident that Dr. Rad is a skilled, experienced and talented surgeon who pays attention to every detail. He is also a super guy – warm, caring, attentive and welcoming. Everything went smoothly and we are extremely happy with the results. We are very pleased with the whole experience and recommend him without hesitation.“

“I am so grateful I chose Dr. Rad to perform my surgery. From the moment I walked in, I felt at ease & comfortable. The office is very clean & creative. He took time to answer all my questions, I didn’t feel rushed as I did w/ other surgeons I met. His staff was prompt to respond & very friendly. Post surgery I called over a holiday weekend w/ a question & he called me back quickly. It has been an easy recovery & trust him fully. My scars are fading quick & it’s only been 5 weeks! He’s the best!”

“Had a facelift with Dr. Rad. Not only did he do a magnificent job, but he was extraordinarily attentive and caring when I experienced an acute complication from surgery.

I have referred several people to him.”
