Why would I Need a Breast Implant Revision?
Reasons to correct your breast implants
Patients consult with the New York Group for Plastic Surgery to correct:
- Misaligned implants, i.e., incorrectly positioned breast implants that are too low, too far to the side or center, or otherwise misplaced.
- Wrinkled or rippled implants.
- Unusual scar tissue around one or both implants due to capsular contracture.
- Stretched tissues around one or both implants.
- Ptosis or sagging breast implants and tissues.
- Symmastia or “Uni-breast.”
- Implant rupture.
- Correction of radiation problems.
Breast Implant Repair
Breast implant repair, or secondary breast implant revision surgery, involves matching and repairing your body’s tissues with your breast implants to ensure the optimal position, shape, and texture of your breast implants.
Breast implant revision surgery is a specialized procedure that involves many of the techniques of breast reconstruction. Complications following an initial breast augmentation surgery usually arise from a lack of support or inadequate tissue structure for the proper implant position and appearance.
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 Acellular dermal matrix (such as Alloderm or Dermacell), utilized as tissue substitutes to stabilize the breast implant location with the additional support and repair of your body’s tissue. At times, meshes may be used for similar purposes.
In addition to enhanced contours, fat transfer from your abdomen, hips, thighs, or other locations, might be used to enhance the natural shape and texture of your breast implants. Our surgeons perform the best breast revision New York City has to offer.
