Revision Breast Surgery

Revision Breast Surgery

On occasion, even careful planning and excellent surgical technique can produce disappointing surgical results or unmet expectations following breast enhancement surgery procedures such as breast reduction or breast augmentation. Revision surgery may help women who are disappointed with their results immediately after breast surgery as well as those who have seen unwelcome changes in their outcome over time.

If your breast enhancement results fell short of your goals, you can achieve the shape you wanted all along by choosing Dr. John T. Nguyen. Dr. Nguyen performs advanced breast enhancement procedures such as secondary breast augmentation and reconstruction.

Challenges and Solutions

Here you’ll find visual examples of common complications that may result from a breast augmentation.

Bottoming Out & Stretch Deformity

Lengthened nipple-to-fold distance due to skin stretching, resulting in the breast pocket that is lower than desired.

Inferior and Lateral Fold Malpositions

The inframammary fold or lateral fold is compromised, causing the breast pocket to migrate inferiorly or laterally.

Symmastia

Medial malposition due to weak tissue resulting in breasts too close together or even touching.
