Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery in the nation. Unfortunately, complications can develop, and patients are not always satisfied with the outcome of this surgery.

Our esteemed breast surgeons at Arizona Aesthetic Associates perform expert breast revision surgery in Scottsdale to correct problems with previous breast augmentation surgery.

Why Do Women Have Breast Revision Surgery?

Breast revision may be performed to correct complications that developed after breast augmentation surgery. Women may also choose to have breast revision because they are dissatisfied with the look their initial surgery achieved, whether in size, projection, or shape.

Revision surgery may be required when implants leak or rupture or when the pocket loosens up too much. Aging, weight loss, and pregnancy can also affect the way a breast augmentation looks and breast revision may be helpful in these cases.

Our board-certified breast surgeons at Arizona Aesthetic Associates proudly provide the smoothest and most aesthetically pleasing breast revision Scottsdale and Phoenix have to offer.*

Complications That May Require Breast Revision Surgery

Our plastic surgeons have extensive training and experience in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures for Phoenix breast revision and reconstruction patients. We perform breast revision surgery to treat or correct breast augmentation complications and to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals.

Problems we address in breast revision surgery include:

  • Capsular contracture: This is the most common complication with breast implant surgery. It occurs when the scar tissue capsule constricts around the implant, causing distortion and hardness of the breast.
  • Implant malposition: This complication arises when an implant slips out of its proper position. Double bubble is a malposition complication in which the implant shifts downward into the breast crease, causing a double bubble appearance.
  • Rippling or wrinkling: Breast revision may be required to correct implant rippling or wrinkling, typically visible along the sides of the breast. This issue is more common among thinner patients or women who have small breasts and thin skin.
  • Implant rupture: Implant rupture or leak could occur at any time. One advantage of saline implants is that a rupture or leak becomes apparent almost immediately, and the implant is replaced. Regardless, sometimes a silicone implant rupture feels different and therefore an implant revision is needed.
  • Incorrect implant sizing: This can be a cause of patient dissatisfaction with breast augmentation results. Women may have breast revision surgery to replace implants that are too large or too small with a size that suits the patient’s anatomy and achieves balance, harmony, and a natural look.

How Is Breast Revision Surgery Performed?

The goal of breast implant revision surgery is to replace existing breast implants with new implants or to modify the breast implant pocket appropriately. The procedure involves doing a variety of surgical treatments to improve the condition or appearance of the breasts.

After anesthesia is administered the surgeon will perform the procedure using one of several possible incision techniques, depending on the type of breast procedures being performed.

Breast revision surgical techniques include:

  • Inframammary: Placed horizontally in the crease under the breast
  • Peri-areolar: A circular incision all or part way around the areola
  • Vertical or lollipop: An incision technique involving a circular incision around the areola and a vertical incision running from the areola to the breast crease.

The surgical technique used in breast revision surgery depends on the issues being addressed in the procedure. When revision is complete, incisions are closed with internal sutures.

The results of a breast revision in Phoenix are visible when post-surgical swelling subsides, typically within several weeks.
