Capsular contracture occurs when excessive scar tissue forms around the implant, causing an unattractive and unnatural aesthetic appearance. This is among the most common conditions that present after an initial breast augmentation surgery. Revision surgery can help to correct capsular contracture and restore a more natural appearance to the breasts.

Some common revision procedures designed to treat excessive scarring include topical treatments, minimally invasive corrective procedures, and surgical revision. Your expert revision plastic surgeon will be able to recommend the revision scar treatment plan that will be most effective for you.

Revision Rhinoplasty

A revision rhinoplasty is designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of a previous nose surgery as well as to correct any breathing or health ailments that have developed as a result of a prior procedure. An experienced facial plastic surgeon will be able to reshape any imperfections in the original rhinoplasty, resulting in an improvement in overall appearance. For patients who are suffering from breathing issues as a result of surgery, your revision plastic surgeon will reconstruct the nasal passages and set the nose in for improved appearance.

Revision Blepharoplasty

A revision blepharoplasty, or revisonal eyelift, can correct the under removal of eye tissue, overly aggressive eyelid tissue removal (ptosis), or the over removal of under eye tissue (ectropion).
