Breast Revision corrects a previous breast surgery

Have you had a breast surgery like breast implants or a breast lift? If so, you likely had expectations for outstanding results. But what if the results of your breast operation are not what you hoped for? In that case, a surgery called a breast revision is likely an option for you. This type of treatment is more advanced than an initial breast surgery in most cases. That’s why it’s especially important to choose an advanced, board-certified Reconstructive Surgeon like Dr. Golshani.

Understanding a Breast Revision

A breast revision, also known as a revision mammaplasty, is a surgery where Dr. Golshani uses various techniques to correct unsatisfactory breast augmentation or breast lift results. His work can include changing the implant size or position, removing scar tissue, internal suturing, performing a breast lift, or using a different style of implant that may be a better fit for your anatomy and goals. Additionally, in some cases, Dr. Golshani may change the position of the implant from over the muscle to under it, or vice versa. The final result is a more satisfying, symmetrical breast appearance. This is not an easy operation to do well, so please choose your breast revision surgeon very carefully.

Reasons for Breast Revision

In general, someone would choose a breast revision surgery to fix one or more aspects of a previous breast surgery. Sometimes this is for esthetic reasons like asymmetry, and sometimes this is for clinical reasons like implant rupture. Reasons for a revision to breast surgery include:

  • Capsular contracture (tightening of the scar or capsule surrounding the implant resulting in an unnatural breast shape)
  • Rippling and/or visibility of the implant
  • Implant rupture, deflation or leaking
  • Infection
  • Discomfort
  • Shifting in position of one or both implants
  • Symmastia (a rare case where two breast implants connect to produce one breast)
  • Excessive firmness or wrinkling of the breast implant
  • Improper implant size
  • Asymmetry between the breasts or unanticipated breast shape
  • Asymmetric, retracted, or enlarged nipples
