Breast Revision

For women who already have undergone breast implant surgery and are dissatisfied with their results, breast revision surgery can be performed.  Breast revision surgery can be performed to correct unsatisfactory previously performed breast surgery (by other plastic surgeons). Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas Senderoff, MD, FACS, has extensive experience in revising and correcting such cases. 

There are a number of reasons why a woman may seek to have breast revision surgery. 

Breast implant hardening or capsular contracture is one main reason why women may seek correction or breast revision surgery.

Breast implant revision surgery is a procedure which usually involves the removal and replacement of a breast implant to correct complications that may have occurred during or after breast augmentation or breast reconstruction surgery. Your breast implant revision will be performed by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas M.  Senderoff, MD, FACS, to correct unsatisfactory results from prior surgery.

Reasons for Breast Implants Revision

  • Capsular contracture:  a tightening of the scar or capsule surrounding the implant. The scar, or capsule, can be removed or incised to produce a better and more natural breast shape.
  • Implant rupture/deflation/leakage
  • Infection
  • Discomfort
  • Shifting/Malposition: the breast implant may migrate and create a lopsided look.
  • Synmastia:  the two breast implants rub up against one another, over the top of the breastbone and come together to produce one breast
  • Wrinkling/Rippling of the implant
  • Incorrect breast implant size
  • Unanticipated shape
  • Asymmetry

Breast Reconstruction due to a Mastectomy

Reconstruction of the breast after a mastectomy due to cancer or other disease is easy possible with today's surgical procedures. The procedure is often covered by many insurance companies and legislation is currently before Congress to enact mandatory coverage. Using the newest medical techniques, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas Senderoff, MD, FACS, is able to create a breast that is similar in form and appearance to that of the natural breast. A complimentary consultation with him will provide you with information on the many available options for post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.

Reconstruction of a breast that has been removed due to cancer or other disease is one of the most rewarding surgical procedures available today. New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for Board Certified Plastic Suregon, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS, to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast. Frequently, reconstruction is possible immediately following breast removal (mastectomy), so the patient wakes up with a breast mound already in place, having been spared the experience of seeing herself with no breast at all.

Most mastectomy patients are medically appropriate for breast reconstruction, many at the same time that the breast is removed.

Overall, there are many reasons women may want or need implant revision or replacement, and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas M. Senderoff, MD, FACS, ill go over your individual situation in detail to try and help you achieve the result you desire.
