Revision Breast Augmentation Surgery

breast augmentation revisionMany breast augmentation patients turn to Dr. Ary Krau for his expertise in revision breast surgery. Often, they are unhappy with the results of their initial breast enhancement procedure, which was performed by another, less experienced cosmetic surgeon. They trust Dr. Krau because he understands the complexity of revision breast surgery. If you are pursuing revision breast augmentation surgery, here are a few things you need to know.

Common Reasons Revision Breast Augmentation Is Needed

There are a plethora of reasons that revision breast augmentation surgery could be needed. One is that breast implants are not intended to last a lifetime and often need to be switched out after about 10 years. Here are some of the common reasons that patients pursue revision breast enhancement surgery:

  • They dislike the results of their initial procedure performed by another plastic surgeon (e.g., the implant size is too big; the results are asymmetrical).
  • They have decided they would like bigger or smaller implants.
  • The patient would like to upgrade to silicone implants, from saline ones.
  • They have decided to remove the implants completely.
  • The patient has suffered from a medical complication, such as capsular contracture (scar tissue forming around the implant, causing the breasts to feel hard) or an implant rupture.
  • The patient has suffered from another type of complication, such as symmastia (i.e., the breasts appear to be joined in the middle) or “double-bubble” deformity (when the implant drops below the natural breast crease, making it appear as though one implant is on top of the other).

Revision breast augmentation is often a more complex procedure than the initial surgery, due to the degree of scar tissue that has likely formed in the treatment area, as well as the need to correct any visible aesthetic concerns. That is why it is crucial to choose a highly experienced board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Krau to perform your revision procedure.
