Refine Your Surgical Results

Revision procedures are surgical interventions to refine or correct previous cosmetic surgeries, ensuring optimal results and satisfaction. These procedures are tailored to address specific concerns that may have arisen post-operatively or to improve upon the outcomes of initial surgeries. Common revision procedures include adjustments to tummy tucks, breast augmentations, implant exchange, and breast reductions, each addressing unique aesthetic and functional considerations.

Examples of Revision Procedures

Tummy Tuck Revisions

Tummy tuck revisions are secondary surgical procedures aimed at refining or correcting the results of a previous abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck. They are needed for various reasons, including dissatisfaction with the initial outcome, changes in body weight or shape, or complications such as asymmetry, excess skin, or scarring.

A tummy tuck revision may involve techniques like liposuction to further sculpt the abdomen, tightening of the abdominal muscles, removal of excess skin, or revision of the original incisions to minimize scarring. The specific approach will depend on your needs and goals, and our surgeons will discuss the options and expected outcomes during the consultation.

Breast Reduction Revisions

Breast reduction revisions involve secondary procedures aimed at refining or adjusting the results of a previous breast reduction. These revisions may be necessary for several reasons, including dissatisfaction with the initial outcome, changes in breast size or shape over time, or complications such as asymmetry, inadequate tissue removal, or undesirable scarring.

A breast reduction revision may involve removing additional breast tissue, adjusting the position of the nipple-areola complex, or revising the original incisions to improve symmetry and minimize scarring. Our surgeons may also use liposuction or tissue rearrangement techniques to help you achieve the desired breast shape and contour.

Breast Augmentation Revisions/Implant Exchange

Breast augmentation revisions involve the replacement or adjustment of breast implants to address various concerns or achieve desired changes in breast size, shape, or appearance. These may be necessary due to complications like capsular contracture, implant malposition, implant rupture, or changes in your aesthetic preferences. Additionally, some individuals may seek implant exchange to switch from saline to silicone implants or vice versa or to adjust the size or profile of their implants for a more proportionate or natural-looking result.

A breast augmentation revision or implant exchange may involve removing the existing implants, addressing any complications, and selecting new implants that better meet your aesthetic goals. The surgery may also include adjustments to the breast pocket or surrounding tissue to optimize implant placement and improve overall breast shape and size.
