Home | Breast | Breast Revision

Breast revision surgery addresses concerns or complications following previous breast augmentation or reconstruction procedures. Dr. Frank Lalezar offers personalized breast revisions to correct issues like implant malposition, capsular contracture, asymmetry, or aesthetic dissatisfaction and restore your confidence.

Remove, Replace, or Correct Breast Implants

Breast revision surgery, also known as breast implant revision or breast implant removal and replacement, is a procedure aimed at addressing issues that may arise after initial breast augmentation. This may involve removing, replacing, or correcting breast implants to achieve desired aesthetic outcomes or resolve complications. Common reasons for seeking breast revision include implant rupture, capsular contracture (the hardening of scar tissue around the implant), implant malposition (implant shifting from its original placement), asymmetry, dissatisfaction with implant size or shape, or changes in personal preferences.

The Goals of Breast Revision:

  • Correcting aesthetic concerns or dissatisfaction with breast implants
  • Restoring symmetry and proportionality to the breasts
  • Addressing complications such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, or malposition
  • Upgrading breast implants after several years or a decade
  • Correcting the natural drooping of breast tissue over time
  • Downsizing or removing the breast implant for a more elegant look
  • Correcting the position of an implant that’s too low or moves to the armpit while lying down
  • Enhancing overall breast appearance and contour

Dr. Lalezar’s Surgical Technique

During breast revision surgery, Dr. Lalezar evaluates the existing implants, surrounding breast tissue, and overall anatomy to determine the most appropriate course of action. Depending on your needs and goals, the procedure may involve removing and replacing implants with different sizes or types, adjusting implant position, performing a breast lift (mastopexy) to address sagging, removing implants altogether, and/or performing breast fat grafting to optimize the shape and appearance of the breast.

Implant Removal With Lift

Implant removal with a breast lift is an option for those seeking to remove their implants while addressing issues like sagging or ptosis. This involves removing the implants and excess skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and repositioning the nipple-areola complex to a higher, more youthful position. By combining implant removal with a lift, patients can achieve firmer, more natural-looking breasts with improved contour and symmetry.

Implant Replacement With Lift

Implant replacement with a breast lift offers a comprehensive solution for individuals seeking to address both implant-related concerns and breast sagging. This involves removing the existing implants, lifting and reshaping the breast tissue to a higher position, and replacing the implants with new ones if desired. By combining implant replacement with a lift, patients can achieve improved breast contour, symmetry, and firmness.

Breast Pocket Correction

Breast pocket correction is a surgical option to address issues related to implant malposition or asymmetry. This involves adjusting the pocket where the implant sits within the breast tissue. Dr. Lalezar can reposition the pocket to correct implants that have shifted too far to the side, bottom, or toward the center of the chest. Breast pocket correction offers a solution for those experiencing concerns like bottoming out, double bubble deformity, or lateral displacement.

Breast Fat Grafting

Breast fat grafting involves transferring fat from one area of the body, typically through liposuction, and injecting it into the breasts to enhance volume and shape. This technique offers a natural alternative to implants, utilizing the patient’s own tissue for augmentation. Often used in combination with other breast revision procedures, such as implant removal or replacement, fat grafting can further refine and optimize breast contours.
