Breast Implant Revisions

Breast implant revisions are arguably some of the most complex, technically challenging aesthetic surgeries. A revision mastopexy (breast lift revision) may be necessary to address issues with symmetry, correct surgical scars, or obtain overall aesthetic improvements. In the case of implant malpositions or stretch deformities—which occur when the breast tissue cannot support the weight of the implant—the resolution may be a breast implant pocket adjustment, scaffolding, tissue reinforcement, or any combination of these advanced techniques. And in numerous procedures, new implants and/or fat grafting may be employed to correct deformities and previously botched procedures, add volume, improve overall appearance.

Issues and conditions resulting from Breast Implant Surgery can vary greatly—after all, the body is responding to the introduction of foreign bodies—and the techniques to resolve these issues depends on a multitude of factors, including your age, the severity of your specific condition(s), surgical history, and desired outcome. However, one thing is clear: Breast revisions of all varieties must be performed by an experienced, highly skilled breast surgeon.
