Introduction to Breast Revision

Breast Revision is a specialized surgical procedure offered at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO aimed at correcting or revising previous breast augmentation, reduction, or reconstruction surgeries. It addresses complications, dissatisfaction with prior results, or changes in aesthetic preferences.

What is Breast Revision Surgery?

Breast revision surgery involves correcting or improving the results of a previous breast surgery, such as breast augmentation, reduction, or reconstruction. It’s performed to address various issues that may arise after initial breast surgery, such as implant-related complications (like rupture or capsular contracture), dissatisfaction with the appearance, asymmetry, changes in breast shape or size over time, or to replace implants due to aging or personal preferences. The procedure can involve removing or replacing implants, adjusting breast tissue, addressing scar tissue (capsule), or performing additional surgeries to achieve the desired outcome or correct any concerns from the initial surgery. The goal of breast revision is to enhance the appearance, restore symmetry, or resolve any issues to meet the patient’s aesthetic and functional goals.

How Does Breast Revision Work?

Breast revision surgery involves a meticulous process to address concerns or improve outcomes from previous breast procedures. Beginning with a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Samir Hasan evaluates the patient’s specific concerns and develops a personalized surgical plan. During the procedure, typically under anesthesia, precise incisions are made along prior surgical scars. Dr. Samir Hasan then adjusts or replaces implants, reshapes breast tissue, or addresses scar tissue as needed to correct asymmetry, revise size or shape, or resolve complications like capsular contracture. The incisions are carefully closed, and post-operative instructions are provided for optimal recovery. Follow-up appointments allow Dr. Samir Hasan to monitor healing progress and ensure the desired outcome, aiming to achieve enhanced breast aesthetics and address any issues from previous surgeries.
