Breast Revision Surgery in Orange County
Breast revision surgery is a very common procedure performed by Dr. Farbod Esmailian. Breast revision surgery is also referred to as corrective breast surgery or secondary breast surgery. A breast revision includes correcting complications from a previous breast surgery or correcting the natural changes that occur to the breast over time secondary to aging, pregnancy and breast feeding.
Reasons to Have a Breast Revision Surgery
Some of the reasons that one would seek the services of Dr. Esmailian for breast revision surgery would be in case of implant deflation, implant malposition, implant hardening (capsular contracture), going smaller, going larger, needing another lift, or in cases of implant rippling. Implant deflation is not a common occurrence but needs to be addressed in a timely manner, as the sooner the surgery is performed after the deflation, the less work is needed to be performed.
Breast Revision Surgery for Implant Malposition Correction
Implant malposition is when the breast implant is not seated appropriately. This can be when the implant has drifted laterally, falling off the chest, or in cases when the two breasts have come so close together forming one breast, called symmastia. In either case a capsulorrhaphy (re-suturing the capsule) needs to be performed.
Correcting Implant Hardening with Breast Revision Surgery
Implant hardening, referred to as capsular contracture is when there is excess scar tissue forming around the implant which can cause pain, distortion of the breast and problems with mammography readings. Dr. Esmailian would remove the excess scar tissue, capsulectomy, or open up the scar tissue called capsulotomy.
Breast Revision Surgery to Correct Rippling
Dr. Esmailian has had very promising results with patients that have had the unfortunate experience of multiple occurrences. Implant rippling is a more common issue with saline implants and implants that are placed in front of the muscle. Breast revision surgery would remove and replace the saline implants with silicone and in cases of subglandular implants, they can be moved to a subpectoral (behind the muscle) position to improve the rippling.
