Corrective Breast Surgery

Breast Augmentation Revision

If you have had a previous breast implant surgery and desire a change in size, a corrective breast surgery, or revision augmentation is necessary. Additionally, a revision is the only way to correct problems associated with rippling, implant rupture or excess scar formation (capsular contracture). Revision breast surgery attempts to restore breasts back to being soft and symmetrical.

Revision surgery usually consists of either removing the scar tissue that inevitably forms around an implant, called a capsulectomy, or releasing the scar tissue, called a capsulotomy. These two procedures attempt to recreate the pocket or space where the implant sits, thereby restoring a more natural feel and appearance. In some cases, a revision can be performed through your previous scars, but often additional incisions are necessary, particularly if excess skin is to be removed at the same time. Depending on how long your implants have been in place, it may be advisable to replace them with a new set of implants.
