Breast Revision

 

Serving The Woodlands, Conroe, and Tomball Area

Breast revision surgery is done to correct an earlier breast surgery, and involves removing or replacing implants or performing an additional lift if the breasts have started to droopIt is not uncommon for women to want rejuvenation or revision of the breasts after a previous cosmetic operation. For example, some patients want to go bigger or remove their implants completely, while others feel they need another lift as the breasts have started to droop again. In addition, some times revision is required due to implant problems such as a rupture or a capsular contracture.

REASONS FOR BREAST REVISION

The Woodlands breast surgeon, Dr. Bryan Correa has corrected a variety of problems arising from a primary surgery. He specializes in correcting problems that have developed from primary augmentation surgeries and is fast becoming one of Houston’s most sought after breast revision surgeons.

RUPTURED IMPLANTS

Implants are made of shells that contain a saline solution or a thick silicone gel. If a saline implant ruptures it is unmistakable physically, as breast volume visibly decreases. The more modern silicone implants can rupture with no visible signs of decrease as the silicone is thicker and is designed to stay within the shell. Patients with silicone implants are encouraged to visit their doctor for regular checkups to detect any ruptures. If you are concerned about a possible rupture of an implant be sure to set up an appointment to be evaluated

SHIFTED IMPLANTS

Most implants stay where they were put, but sometimes they can migrate in any number of directions—for example, toward the outside of the chest or closer to the sternum. Additionally, it is also possible for implants to slip below the inframammary fold (crease under the breast); this is a particular concern if the inframammary fold was altered during the first operation. Not only do these conditions make the breasts look unnatural, they can be very uncomfortable.

CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE

The body naturally encloses any foreign object, including a breast implant, with scar tissue. This is a normal process in all cases. However, in some women, the scar tissue becomes very thick and contracts, compressing the implant. This can cause the breast to become misshapen and hard, as well as cause the implant to move (usually upwards on the chest). Sometimes only one breast is affected which also causes asymmetry in the chest with one breast higher than the other. This condition can be painful.

IMPLANT MALPOSITION

On some patients, implants can migrate to other positions after surgery. This can happen for a variety of reasons but is commonly related to implants that are too large for a person’s chest. It is also possible that things did not heal normally after the first operation or that the first operation was problematic. Implant migration or malposition is typically only a cosmetic concern and depending on severity can be minimally noticeable to extremely bothersome and unnatural.

ANIMATION OR "MUSCLE FLEX" DEFORMITY

Women who notice their implants moving abnormally when lifting heavy objects or working out have what is called animation deformity. To some degree, this is unavoidable whenever an implant is placed below the pectoral muscle. However, in some patients, it becomes worse or more noticeable with time and thus is bothersome enough to motivate evaluation.

CONSIDERING A BREAST REVISION?

Breast surgery revisions are more complicated than original surgeries. Houston breast surgeon, Dr. Correa will be happy to meet with you to discuss ways of correcting your particular problem so that your breasts look natural and do not cause you pain or discomfort. If your implant has ruptured your options vary based on the type of implant. Saline implants typically need to be replaced due to the obvious change in size that occurs. Silicone implants that rupture can often be simply watched and do not need surgery; this is determined on a case-by-case basis. Individual results may vary.

Dr. Correa’s Philosophy on

Breast Revision

“Patients seek revision of previous breast surgery for a number of reasons. Thankfully as plastic surgeons, we have many tools to address the variety of problems that can develop and therefore have confidence we can improve your look.”

BREAST LIFT

Dr. Correa and his team are amazing. They are so kind and patient. Dr. Correa goes out of his way to achieve the best results for you. He is also very honest about what to expect. He never makes you feel rushed if you have questions. With his talent he could easily intimidate or make a person wanting to fix flaws self conscious but he does not. Quite the opposite, he is most calming. Gabrielle and Rochelle are so helpful and sweet, if they have a bad day, you never know it. They make everything very easy and clear. I researched al LOT of Dr’s and went through photos of work for days. Dr. Correa’s stood out as the best and I am so glad I chose him to do my procedure. Totally worth it and I would trust and recommend he and his team to anyone that listens.

BREAST LIFT WITH IMPLANTS

After two babies, and loosing 75lbs my once big beautiful boobies became sad depressed things 🙁 . it was mentally defeating to finally loose alot of weight i gained after some medical issues, and being lazy 😉 to also loose a part of my body i have always loved…

 i went to a good amount of consultations.. one telling me exactly what i wanted to hear, one telling me everything i didn’t want to hear PLUS telling me i needed to add on a nose job, lips, lipo, tummy tuck, just to name a few…  then i found Dr. Correa… omg was he a godsend for me… he spent the most time with me during my consultation out of 7 other doctors, he went over everything possible with me and my husband, answered our multiple questions with detailed answers… we stood in the parking lot and both agreed he was the one.

Dr Correa made us feel comfortable, safe and welcomed. Gabrielle was hands down a dream.. she was so helpful, sweet and comforting

Dr. Correa is absolutely amazing!

Dr. Correa is absolutely amazing! It hasn’t been the easiest recovery but he and his staff have been very helpful and attentive. He has called several times to check on me and Gabrielle is very sweet and helpful – even when I have called to ask the same questions probably more than once lol – top notch surgeon and staff , he is definitely the best and I am very happy that I chose to go with him.

What an amazing physician!

BREAST AUGMENTATION

What an amazing physician! Dr. Correa and his office staff treat you like a family member from day one. Everything from the consult, surgery day, to post op was professional and he really went out of his way to make me feel at home. I never once felt like I was being “rushed along”, or felt like I was just another paycheck. This physician and his staff go the extra mile. The day of my surgery, he was fifteen minutes early! Fifteen minutes people! I work at a hospital and i can tell you no surgeries ever run on time, let alone early. I also appreciate the fact that he performs all surgeries at an actual hospital, not a outpatient surgical center. Dr. Correa even called me from his personal phone later in the evening after my surgery to check on me. His office coordinator, Gabrielle, and his nurse, are remarkable girls! They accommodate every rescheduled appointment and are very warm and caring. You are doing yourself an absolute disservice if you do not allow yourself to be sculpted by Dr. Correa! I promise you will not regret it!
