Breast Revision

Breast revision is typically performed to remove or replace an existing breast implant. This procedure is for patients who are dissatisfied with a previous breast augmentation procedure, whether as a result of complications or the implant size and/or type not providing the appearance they desire.

Correction for Capsular Contracture

Capsular contracture develops when the natural scar tissue capsule thickens and constricts breast implants after breast augmentation. This can cause discomfort and an unsatisfactory breast appearance. Capsular contracture can be treated by breast revision techniques that generally include removing the scar tissue capsule and replacing the implants.

Correction for Bottoming Out

Bottoming out is a breast augmentation complication that occurs when one or both breast implants slips below the inframammary line, resulting in an unsatisfactory breast appearance. Breast revision techniques that include placing a mesh scaffold for support may be used to correct this condition.

Correction for Tubular Breasts

Tubular breast deformity occurs when the breast tissue develops irregularly during puberty, and it causes one or both breasts to be misshapen (often cone-shaped). A more natural and attractive breast shape can be achieved by altering the lower pole breast tissue to allow it to expand.
