Breast revision and reconstruction are advanced surgical procedures performed to create beautiful, balanced breasts, correcting issues arising from surgical complications, illness, or injury.
What are breast revision and reconstruction?
Breast revision surgery is typically carried out to correct issues that have arisen following a previous breast procedure, such as breast augmentation or mastopexy. This may include correcting issues such as implant malposition, capsular contracture, implant rupture or deflation, or dissatisfaction with the implant size or shape.
Breast reconstruction surgery, on the other hand, is typically performed to restore the appearance of the breasts following a mastectomy or other surgical procedure that has resulted in the loss of breast tissue. Reconstruction may utilize breast implants, tissue expanders, or the patient's own autologous tissue to create a new breast mound.
