With time, even the best augmentation mammoplasty may be affected by eventual tissue sag or formation of capsular contracture (scar tissue) that requires further surgery. Because of our surgeons’ extensive experience with augmentation mammoplasty, our surgeons are frequently asked to correct problems that have occurred with previous breast surgeries.

Revision surgery may be requested because of dissatisfaction with the original surgery results, including appearance, size or problems in how the implants feel.

Our surgeons will take the time to understand the issues – including gathering information about the placement of the implant above or below the muscle, the type of implant, the date of the previous surgery and any significant events that may have lead up to the current problems.

Problems can be caused by trauma, infection or pregnancy – or other circumstances. We will carefully review your goals and expectations in order to arrive at a realistic treatment plan that also considers the results of a physical examination.

Revisional surgery is a specialized area of augmentation surgery and may require techniques or procedures not typically a part of the original augmentation, such as use of drains, massage techniques, prolonged breast fold support, or the use of oral medications. These may be necessary in order to reduce undesired scar formations.
