Over five million women in this country have undergone breast augmentation surgery. Unfortunately, not all these surgeries go smoothly. Whether the original surgery was performed incorrectly, the outcome was poor, or subsequent aging or pregnancy affected the results, revision breast surgery is a solution.

Before & After

Complications That May Require Revision Breast Surgery

Capsular contracture

As possibly the most common complication, capsular contracture occurs when the scar tissue surrounding the implant tightens and hardens. This creates a visible deformity, as well as physical discomfort for the patient. 

Implant malposition

When the implant slips from its proper position, it presents an aesthetic issue. An example of implant malposition is the so-called “double bubble” deformity, in which the implant drops below its intended pocket. This creates a double bubble appearance.

Rippling

In some cases, particularly when patients have thin skin, the skin is unevenly distributed along the surface of the implant, resulting in visible rippling. This rippling is typically visible along the sides of the breast.

Implant rupture

As manmade products that do have an eventual expiration, implants can fail. With saline implants, this rupture is evident almost immediately. With silicone implants, it is detectable eventually, but generally poses no health risk. Patients with silicone implants should undergo annual mammograms to verify the status of their implants.

Incorrect implant size

This may be the result of a poor decision, or it may be the result of physical discomfort. In some cases, women may have placed implants that are too large, resulting in aesthetic and comfort-related issues. In other cases, women may simply be dissatisfied with their original size and wish for larger breasts. 

Ranch & Coast surgeons have extensive experience in both cosmetic and reconstructive breast procedures, enabling them to aptly correct a previous breast surgery with a subpar result. All told, the doctors at our facility can help patients correct virtually any complication following primary breast surgery.

The Good News

These are the most common and treatable conditions for revision breast surgery in San Diego. The vast majority of these are fixable and will leave little trace of a previously poor procedure. Many techniques are used in combination to fix breast augmentation, such as capsulorrhaphy, capsulotomy, capsulectomy, repositioning of implant sub-muscularly, use of ADM’s (Acellular Dermal Matrix), and mastopexy. In addition, shape and size discrepancies and areolar asymmetries can be addressed.
