Breast Surgery Revision
There are many potential breast implant complications that could require breast augmentation revision, from correcting capsular contracture to simply wanting to update your look.
Aesthetics: Breasts are one of the defining characteristics of the female form, and issues like ripples or wrinkles on the implant surface can detract from the overall aesthetics of your breast augmentation. Dr. Halls can make the necessary adjustments to help your implants look and feel as natural as possible.
Asymmetrical Breast Revision: Age and the natural healing process can affect one breast differently than the other. Breast implant revision surgery can restore a more balanced look to your appearance.
Biopsy or Breast Surgery Defects: Irregular contours or indentations left behind after biopsy or breast surgery defects can be corrected and minimized through breast revision surgery.
Breast Reconstruction Revision: Skilled in the most advanced reconstructive techniques, Dr. Halls can enhance the results of a former breast or nipple reconstruction.
Breast Scar Revision: A scar that didn’t heal as anticipated or that feels too prominent can be improved through scar revision surgery.
Capsular Contracture Revision: The development of scar tissue is a normal part of the healing process, but sometimes scar tissue growth can be excessive. Breast surgery revision can correct capsular contracture, often in combination with breast implant replacement, for a soft, full look and feel again.
Implant Position: Ensuring a natural placement on the chest wall is essential for the best breast augmentation results, so even a slight alteration in implant position over time can affect your figure. Implants can shift toward the chest midline.
Synmastia/Symmastia, migrate toward the underarms (lateral displacement), or “bottom out” by sitting lower on the chest than is ideal. Dr. Halls can repair the existing implant pocket to return implants to a more appropriate placement.
Implant Size: Regrets over size are one of the most common reasons that women pursue breast implant revision. Whether you want implants that are larger, smaller or prefer to remove them entirely, Dr. Halls can help you choose the new look that’s right for you.
