Learn about Revisional Breast Augmentation
Revisional breast augmentation surgery can be a relief to women who were frustrated, disappointed, or saddened by the results of their initial breast enlargement procedure. Contact Dr. Straka today to find out how your past breast enlargement surgery can be revisited with revisional breast augmentation.
Over 300,000 breast augmentation surgeries are performed every year, and according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it has over an 85 percent satisfaction rate. According to those statistics, breast revision surgery is not that common, but it’s also not as rare as we hope. There are plenty of reasons you may be unhappy with the results of your breast augmentation, which could range from personal disappointment in the look of your breasts to a medical issue arising from surgery. Ultimately, you should discuss with your surgeon or seek a consultation for a second opinion with a new surgeon if you are in anyway unhappy with your breast augmentation.
While you shouldn’t self-diagnose your breast augmentation problems, having a better understanding of why you may feel dissatisfied with your results can help you better communicate with your surgeon during your breast revision consultation.
Selecting your implant size can be complicated, and unfortunately, the wrong size may be chosen during your initial breast augmentation surgery. If you feel your breasts are still too small or now too large following your surgery, you may need revision surgery to place implants that are ideal for you. In some cases, we may change the positioning of the implants to improve the shape of the breasts, which can alter the overall look of the breasts.
Capsular contracture is a medical issue that can develop after breast augmentation surgery. A scar tissue capsule naturally forms around the breast implants during recovery. Capsular contracture occurs when the capsule begins to tighten around the implant. It can cause a hard, distorted breast appearance and sometimes it can be painful. The capsule may be released or removed to relieve the pain and to help improve the appearance of the breasts.
Implant malposition is more likely to occur slowly over time, but it can be immediately noticeable after breast augmentation surgery. Implants tend to shift their position because of a poorly constructed pocket. You may find your implants have shifted laterally into the armpits, medially toward the middle of the chest, or down below the inframammary line. Breast revision surgery can help with most types of malposition.
