Breast Revision Orange County

Breast revision surgery is a very common procedure performed by Dr. Farbod Esmailian. Breast revisional surgery is also called redo breast surgery or secondary breast surgery. This includes correcting complications from previous breast surgery or correcting the natural changes that occur to the breast over time secondary to aging, pregnancy and breast feeding.

Some of the reasons that one would seek the services of Dr. Esmailian for breast redo 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. 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. 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.

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. Revisional 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.

As breast procedure surgery has increased over the years so has the revision rates. Dr. Esmailian is proud to have a very low revision rate, secondary to his precise and meticulous surgical technique. Given that revisional surgery is always a more difficult surgery, you should be very cautious as to who you choose to perform the procedure. Dr. Esmailian can assist you and individualize a surgical plan and provide you with the most optimal and natural result possible.
