What Is

Breast Revision Surgery ?

Women undergo procedures like Breast augmentation through implants, breast reduction and even breast lifts. Sometimes, these surgeries give rise to complications or even undesirable results. 

The main aim of a Breast Revision surgery is changing and improving the appearance of the breast which was previously altered with implants or reduced. It also includes altering and updating the implant material. 

At times, women might want to change the implant material or even increase the implant size. In other cases, the implants may be wrongly placed which affects the symmetry and overall appearance of the breasts making them look displeasing.

Breast revision surgery at Vanity Cosmetic Clinic safely and effectively paves the way for correcting any and all issues that might have arisen due to the above procedures.

Why Do

Women Opt For Breast Revision Surgery ?

Unlike other surgeries, breast revision surgery does not have one common method which can be used on all patients. Breast revision surgery is customized and altered according to the needs and requirements of the patient for the best possible outcome. Since their needs are different their reasons for opting to undergo Breast Revision Surgery are also different.

Following are the reasons why women may opt for Breast Revision Surgery:

  • Change In Size Of Implants: In certain cases, the implant size does not match the patient’s need. In these cases the patient wants to either size up their implant or size down a notch; a breast revision surgery is performed in such a situation by making an incision at the previous breast augmentation scar. After the removal of the previous implant, the new implant or desired size is placed
  • Capsular Contracture: Sometimes, the edges of the implants are clearly visible. This affects the overall appearance making the breasts look unattractive and unnatural. Breast Revision surgery is then performed by opening the previous incision. The implants are either repositioned in a natural way or completely removed according to the patient’s wishes.
  • Implant Malposition: In certain situations, the implants are either placed too far apart or too close together. This gives an asymmetrical appearance to the breasts. This can also be corrected by opening the incision and re-positioning the implants optimally by manipulating the scar tissue and the implant pocket.
  • Implant Removal: If the skin has stretched or if the patient is having health concerns due to large implants, these can be removed. A breast lift can be performed after the removal of implants to ensure the breasts remain firm and anatomically higher in position.
  • Elevation Of Nipple And Areola Position: The position of the nipple can be raised at an attractive height and the size of areolas can also be changed. Incisions can be made around the areola, excising the excess skin and positioning them properly.

It is absolutely necessary to have a consultation with Dr Santosh Bhatia first in order to analyse the condition of the breasts and then going for the breast revision process that best suits your situation.
