Breast Revision Monmouth County

Breast Revision Surgery in Monmouth County, Jersey Shore, and West Long Branch, NJ

More than 2 million American women have received breast implants. While the majority of these are highly satisfied with the results of their augmentation surgery, some patients feel that something more can be done to improve the outcome of the initial procedure. These feelings of dissatisfaction may be caused by the size, shape, or placement of the implant, or complications resulting from the augmentation procedure. Other patients need to have a breast revision due to safety concerns, or in order to replace their implants after a certain duration of time. Dr. Rahul Vemula has helped countless New Jersey women gain satisfaction and improve their confidence level with revision breast surgery. This procedure is typically similar to a breast augmentation surgery, but with slight modifications based on the reason for revision.

Reasons for a Breast Revision

Different augmentation patients have different reasons for needing a revision procedure. Some of the more common reasons include:

Capsular Contracture
Infrequently, the capsule around a breast implant can harden. When this occurs, it is called capsular contracture. This causes distortion of implant appearance, discomfort, and even pain. Dr. Vemula offers capsulectomy, a revision procedure that focuses on removing the capsule in order to treat this complication. There are several theories as to the cause of capsular contracture.  Dr. Vemula takes great care to minimize the risk of capsular contracture during the initial augmentation or revision surgery.

Breast implants from the augmentation procedure may ride too high, too low, or too lateral on the chest wall. When this happens, most patients will need revision surgery to correct the malposition. Depending on the extent of displacement, Dr. Vemula may offer surgical revision to attain a balanced and well-proportioned look.

Implant Deflation
Saline implants may rupture and leak, leading to a deflated breast appearance. Although this does not cause a health concern, the patient’s breasts will have asymmetry and an unaesthetic appearance.  The revision procedure, in this case, maybe as simple as replacing the deflated implant. Depending on the manufacturer of the implant; if still under warranty, the cost of the implant may be covered by the manufacturer. The patient, however is still responsible for covering the cost of anesthesia, operating room and surgeon fees.

Change in Breast Size
Many women feel that they need larger or smaller breasts after the initial augmentation treatment. This is usually due to changes in personal preferences as well as changing societal norms. In this case, Dr. Vemula will take the patient through a selection process to understand their desired size then perform an implant replacement procedure.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Rahul Vemula at V Plastic Surgery, the surgeon will listen to your concerns and let you know whether revision surgery is for you. In some cases, nonsurgical options may be available to give the patient the desired outcome.
