Breast implant repair, or secondary breast implant revision surgery, involves matching and repair of your body’s tissue with your breast implants so that the position, shape and texture of your breast implants are natural and beautiful.

Breast implant revision surgery is a specialized procedure that involves many of the techniques of breast reconstruction. Complications following an initial breast augmentation surgery, generally, usually arise from a lack of support or adequate tissue structure necessary for the proper position, appearance and placement of the implant.

Breast implant revision patients at the New York Group for Plastic Surgery consult with nationally recognized specialists in the use of new materials, such as Strattice and an Acellular dermal matrix such as Alloderm or Dermacell, utilized as tissue substitutes to stabilize the breast implant location with additional support and repair of your body’s tissue. At times, meshes may be used for similar purposes.

In addition to enhance contours, fat transfer from your abdomen, hips or thighs or other location, may be used to enhance the natural shape and texture of your breast implants.
