About William P. Adams Jr., MD

Introduction
Choosing a plastic surgeon can be a confusing task, but the most important thing to consider before making your decision, is if your doctor has undergone the elite training that is required for being a recognized plastic surgeon; not just a surgeon that performs cosmetic procedures. Specialized training prepares the surgeon to perform distinct cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures all over the body. This elite standard can be identified by Board Certification from The American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Adams is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, accredited by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This means he has undergone the rigorous additional, comprehensive surgical training required by the Board, and passed both extensive final written and oral examinations. Furthermore, certification requires continuous self-assessment and developmental standards that must be met.

There are many classifications of board certification, but only the American Board of Plastic Surgery differentiates true plastic surgeons. As a patient, it is imperative to confirm your doctor has this precise certification.

Professional Background

Dr. Adams spent his first 10 years in practice in the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center before transitioning to full time private practice, in order to devote more time to his clinical practice and developments. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center, in addition to the Director of the Aesthetic Fellowship Program.

He earned his undergraduate degree with honors from Princeton University. He then attended Vanderbilt University Medical School, where he graduated in the top 10% of his class and received the prestigious award for Best Graduating Clinician. He completed both his general surgery and plastic surgery residency in the nationally renowned resident training program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. Additionally, he completed his fellowship in plastic surgery at UT Southwestern.

Dr. Adams is a national and global authority on breast implant surgery and implant-related issues. He developed new irrigations for use in clinical breast implant surgery that makes breast enlargement and breast reconstruction safer and drastically minimizes exposure to bacteria. Dr. Adams is currently doing active research on Capsular Contracture, Implants, advancements in surgical techniques, Breast Implant Associated ALCL (BIA-ALCL), and Breast Implant Illness (BII).

He has published numerous papers, articles, and scholarly textbooks; and presented a number of plastic surgery lectures on the international level. He is on the breast editorial board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and The Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the premier journals of plastic surgery.

My wife has long had Baker III capsular contracture around her Allergan 468 textured implants (18 yrs post-op). Won't the CC tend to mask the effusion/swelling and/or firmness that seem to be the most prevalent early symptoms of BI-ALCL? If so, might this set of circumstances uniquely make…

One of the main risks factors for BIA-ALCL is textured implants. A relatively small number of the case had had capsular contracture. There have been two known cases of capsular contracture as the only presenting issue/symptom. The pathogenic process for Capsular contracture and BIA-ALCL may have some similarities mediated by chronic inflammation, but the end host response appears to be different - fibrotic (CC) vs. transformative (BIA-ALCL).
