Breast Revision SurgeryMany times when a woman has breast revision surgery, her results are stunning and there are no complications. However, in rare cases she may experience a few complications such as capsular contracture or breast asymmetry. These changes can be quite distressing, causing worries about whether her body may appear normal again. With a procedure known as breast revision surgery, Dr. Philip Richardson can correct concerns from previous augmentation procedures so that you can once again love the shape and appearance of your breasts. Breast revision surgery in Brisbane is performed to restore confidence and repair symmetry so you can ultimately be happy with your look.

What is breast revision surgery?

Breast revision surgery is a kind of procedure that helps restore the breasts after some kind of complication with a previous surgery or implant. There are many reasons behind getting revisional breast surgery. Some of the problems may include:

  • Unsatisfactory results from an existing surgery
  • Scar tissue build-up, known as capsular contracture
  • Uneven breast shape
  • Ruptured implants

What happens during breast revision surgery?

Sometimes a breast implant can distort the nipple and surrounding skin. In this case, Dr. Richardson can restore the nipple and skin tissues. He may use skin grafts to help reshape or resize the nipple and areola. To ensure the integrity of your nipple and areolas, he will use very minute incisions that heal quickly and do not leave scarring.

If the issue is capsular contracture or breast scar tissue, he may create a small incision and remove the implant and scar tissue. After removing the implant and the tissue, he may place a new implant that does not irritate the breast. He will monitor your breasts to ensure that no future complications arise.

If your breast implants are not the correct shape or size, Dr. Richardson can assess the breasts and determine whether an implant should be replaced with a larger one or smaller one. He will examine your breasts and use 3D models to ensure that you receive the right implants.

Although rare, implants can develop a leak or brupture and need to be removed. In this case, Dr. Richardson will remove the implant and replace it with a new implant.

What happens during the consultation?

During your consultation, Dr. Richardson will examine your breasts and body to determine the cause of your discomfort or irregular breast shape. Once he has determined the problem, he will recommend options that will meet your needs.
