The Revision Plastic Surgery Center of Excellence offers a number of cutting-edge breast revision procedures including, but not limited to:
Capsular contracture correction
In order to correct capsular contracture, your physician will remove the infected implant, irrigate the remaining tissue, place you on an individualized course of antibiotics, then reinsert the implant.
It may become necessary to replace the current implant if it has ruptured, begun to leak, or become displaced. During implant replacement, the affected implant is surgically removed and a new implant is inserted.
Increasing or decreasing size
Some individuals who undergo an initial breast augmentation may decide that larger implants would better compliment their frame. Other may find that their breast implant are in fact too large and may be leading to unintended health consequences such as chronic back or neck pain. In wither case, your surgeon can remove the implants and replace them with smaller ones.
Implants can become malpositioned for a number of reasoning including surgical error or natural, unforeseen bodily changes. During a consultation, your surgeon can assess the type and severity of your condition then devise a course of treatment accordingly. Internal support and/or an internal breast lift may be necessary for optimal results.

Once your condition or conditions are diagnosed, your physician will be able to recommend an individualized and comprehensive treatment plan for the best results.
