Breast revision procedure
Breast revision can be performed in a variety of ways, depending on your needs and personal goals for your breasts.
Breast implant removal with replacement implants or fat transfer augmentation
The incisions will be made in the same place that the original incisions were made. Once the original implants are removed, new implants of your choosing are inserted, and the incisions are closed.
Breast implant removal with fat transfer breast augmentation
Women who would like to achieve a more natural breast augmentation that increases the breasts by a cup size or two may choose fat transfer. During this procedure, excess fat in an area with excess fat tissue is removed with gentle liposuction. The harvested fat tissue is cleansed carefully. These healthy, purified cells are then injected into your breasts to achieve breast enhancement, symmetry, and shape.
Breast implant removal by capsulectomy
Capsular contracture is the hardening of the capsule, which is the tissue that your body forms around the breast implants. If this tissue becomes infected, a capsulectomy is performed to remove it. The incision is made at the bottom of the breast, then upward to the areola. Using this incision, the implant and the capsule are separated from the surrounding tissue and removed together.
Breast implant revision with breast lift
For patients with sagging breasts, once the breast implants are removed, with the same incisions, a breast lift can be performed to shape and lift the breasts, raising them to a higher, more youthful position on the chest wall. Your nipples will be repositioned to tilt upward attractively.
