Not Satisfied With Previous Breast Surgery? 

Breast surgery is an individualized, personal decision for every woman. These surgeries include breast augmentation, breast reduction, and mastopexy-augmentation (breast lift with augmentation). However, following a procedure, a patient may not be pleased with the outcome or have a complication arise, which motivates seeking out another surgeon for a revision. This may occur months or even years following the primary operation.

Revisionary Breast Surgery Can Correct Previous Surgeries

Occasionally, seeking the expertise of another surgeon after previous breast surgery may be necessary to address specific concerns. Reasons for seeking further assistance include:

  • Breast Asymmetry: When there's a notable imbalance in breast size, shape, or position.
  • Capsular Contracture: The development of scar tissue around the implant causing discomfort or distortion.
  • Symmastia: where implants meet in the center of the chest due to improper placement.
  • Ruptured Implant: Addressing a ruptured implant to ensure safety and aesthetic integrity.
  • Change in Implant Volume: Adjusting implant size to achieve desired proportions.
  • Implant Replacement: Revising from saline to silicone implants for improved texture and appearance.
