Breast Revision
in Scottsdale, AZ

At Natural Results Plastic Surgery, we provide advanced breast revision surgery for women who want to achieve their desired aesthetic results. Over time, changes such as implant displacement, capsular contracture, or dissatisfaction with the initial results may occur after a breast lift or augmentation. However, with advancements in cosmetic surgery, it’s now possible to effectively address these concerns and improve the overall appearance of a patient’s breasts.

Our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Carlos Mata and Dr. Martin Benjamin are experts in breast revision procedures. Using advanced techniques, they can assist patients in achieving their ideal breast size and shape. We aim to provide natural-looking outcomes that enhance self-assurance and help women feel fantastic again.

What Is a Breast
Revision Surgery?

A breast revision is a surgical procedure performed to fix or enhance the results 
of a previous breast augmentation, lift, or reduction. Our surgeons address problems like capsular contracture, implant malposition, implant shape or size dissatisfaction, or asymmetry. The end goal is an enhanced appearance and more natural-looking breasts. Dr. Mata and Dr. Benjamin offer a range of breast revision procedures to suit each patient. These include implant removal or replacement, implant repositioning, scar tissue removal, and breast tissue reshaping. Incisions might be made around the areola (the pigmented area surrounding the nipple), below the breast in its natural crease line, or within or near any previous scars. 
All of them aim to make subsequent scarring as minimal as possible.
A breast revision surgery can bring about significant changes in both the size and shape of a patient’s breasts. What is more, it is designed to preserve their sensitivity and, if applicable, breastfeeding ability.

Types of Breast Revision

At Natural Results Plastic Surgery, we understand that every patient has unique needs and goals when it comes to breast revision. That’s why we offer a variety of techniques to help address different concerns. The most popular breast revision is breast implant revision, but here are some examples:

Breast Implants Removal

Breast implant removal is a surgery that removes breast implants for women who no longer want them or have concerns about their health. Our surgeons use existing scars as a guide when removing silicone or saline breast implants and manipulating breast tissue for a more natural look. This solution works well if a patient wants to return to her original size. Alternatively, a breast implant revision surgery helps fix problems such as ruptured implants or capsular contractures.
The breast implants replacement aka breast implant exchange is a procedure aimed to remove old breast implants and replace them with new ones. Women may choose to have this surgery because they want to change the size or type of their implants from saline breast implants to silicone implants or because they have had complications from the original surgery. Our experts adjust (or reconstruct) the breast pocket to accommodate the new implant so that it looks good and sits where it should.
Dr. Mata and Dr. Benjamin perform capsulectomies to eliminate the scar tissue capsules that can form around breast implants, a condition known as capsular contracture. This can make the breasts painful, hard, or distorted. They skillfully remove the capsule(s) and may also replace implants if needed or wished for. It is an essential procedure for women who suffer from discomfort or dislike how their breasts look because of capsular contracture.
The correction of rippling addresses the visible waves or folds on the breast’s surface, which are typically caused by insufficient tissue covering an implant. Our surgeons can smooth out breast contours by using fat grafting, replacing implants, or adjusting their position. For women who are concerned about how their breast implants look and feel because of rippling, this procedure may help create a smoother, more natural-looking breast appearance.
We recommend symmetry correction procedures for patients who have asymmetrical breasts due to previous surgeries or genetics. To create a well-proportioned and symmetrical look, our board-certified surgeon may use different techniques like replacing implants, adding fat, or changing the position of tissue. The surgical incisions are made to keep scarring hidden as much as possible. This procedure is perfect for anyone who wants nicer-looking breasts overall.

  • Marking and Anesthesia: On the day of the surgery, our expert carefully identifies and marks the areas on the patient’s breasts where incisions will be made. Afterward, the patient is taken to the operating room, where our anesthesiologist will give them general anesthesia. This means they will be completely asleep during the operation and feel no discomfort.

  • Incisions and Adjustment: Our surgeon skillfully makes incisions based on the markings made before surgery. Through these incisions, he can remove or insert implants, modify their position, remove any built-up scar tissue, and reshape breast tissue if necessary. Every effort is made during this process to create the desired shape of the breasts and address any problems from the previous surgery.

  • Closing the Incisions: After achieving the desired shape and placement of the breasts during surgery, Dr. Mata or Dr. Benjamin uses sutures to close the incisions. The length of time for the entire procedure is usually between two to four hours. Still, it can vary based on how complicated the revision is.

Add-On Procedures

Breast Lift

If a woman is already planning on getting breast revision surgery, she might also consider having a breast lift at the same time. This procedure lifts and reshapes sagging breasts, providing a more youthful contour. Combining a breast lift with breast revision can enhance overall breast aesthetics, addressing issues like drooping and asymmetry. Though recovery from two surgeries will take longer than from one alone, the difference made by having both done simultaneously can be amazing.

Breast Fat Transfer

A breast fat transfer is another procedure that can be done alongside a breast lift surgery. This technique involves using liposuction to remove fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or sides. This fat is then injected into the patient’s breasts to add volume and shape. When breast revision surgery is performed alongside breast fat transfer, patients can enjoy not just improved breast shape and size using their own fat but also better body proportions.

Immediate Post-Operative Care

Following the surgery, our patients are brought to our comfortable post-operation area. Our team carefully monitors their health throughout their transition from being under anesthesia to wakefulness. Dr. Mata and Dr. Benjamin make sure patients are in good condition before sending them home the same day. They also provide medication for any pain they may have. It is expected to have some swelling, bruising, and tenderness after surgery. We recommend applying surgical dressings to the incisions and wearing a supportive surgical bra to minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal.
We recommend that our patients have a rest and avoid strenuous activities for the first few days post-surgery. Our expert advises engaging in light activities and going for brief walks to promote blood circulation. He also arranges a check-up within the initial seven days. This way, he can inspect how well the injury is healing, swap or remove any bandages if necessary, and respond to any queries or worries a patient might have.
Most patients can return to light activities and work within one to two weeks. However, this time varies depending on how quickly they recover and their job type. Strenuous exercise or heavy lifting should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. Wearing a compression garment, as advised, is still essential during this period. Besides, patients must follow specific care instructions for the incision sites to prevent infection and promote proper healing.
Over the next few months, patients can expect the swelling and bruising to go down. As they do, they will start to see how their breasts look after this surgery. They should appear more even and have a better overall shape. To enjoy these results for as long as possible, patients should stay at a steady weight and live a healthy life.

Candidates for a Breast Revision

A breast revision is meant for women who have previously had breast augmentation, lift, or reduction and are unhappy with the outcome. Preferable patients must be in good health, possess reasonable expectations, and be ready for long-term recovery. Here are some key points that make someone a suitable candidate for a breast revision:

Dissatisfaction with Size, Shape, or Appearance

This is the main reason why women choose to have a breast revision. This procedure can help achieve a more desired look by changing the breasts’ size, shape, or firmness.

Concerns About Implant Integrity or Condition

If patients are worried about the integrity or condition of their breast implants, such as experiencing leakage or rupture, they may consider a breast revision. Addressing these issues can improve both aesthetics and safety.

Physical Health and Stable Weight

To obtain optimal results, the patient must be physically healthy and stable. They should avoid significant weight loss following the operation, as this may impact the shape of their breasts.

Realistic Expectations

Having realistic expectations is another critical condition. Understanding surgery’s potential outcomes and limitations can help them feel satisfied afterward.

Non-smokers

Non-smokers make better candidates. Smoking can hinder healing and raise the risk of complications. It is best if patients quit smoking for at least a month before surgery.
