Revision Techniques

Dr. Hasen is one of only a handful of surgeons offering both surgical and non-surgical options for breast augmentation revision.

Reasons for Breast Implant Revision

Breast revision surgery may be an option if you are experiencing problems with your breast implants, if you wish to change the implant type or size, or if you are unhappy with the aesthetic results. In some cases, women may choose breast implant removal surgery. Some common complications Dr. Hasen sees in his office include:

  • Capsular Contracture: This is a fairly common reason for women to seek revision breast surgery. It occurs when excess scar tissue forms around the implant, causing the breast to become hard or distorted in shape. To correct this problem, Dr. Hasen offers an innovative non-surgical breast revision procedure using external ultrasound. In more advanced cases, surgical revision with removal of the scar tissue and replacement with a new implant may be advised.
  • “Double Bubble”: When implants are placed improperly, the breast tissue may descend over the breast implant, or the implant may hang below the actual breast, creating the appearance of two breast creases. In this situation, Dr. Hasen may recommend replacement and repositioning of the breast implants.
  • “Bottoming Out”: If gravity causes the implant to move lower in the breast pocket, and the pocket is not strong enough to support the implant, then “bottoming out” may occur. This is usually the result of over-dissection of the pocket during surgery or from an overactive chest muscle when the implants are placed below the muscle. The breasts may seem to hang too low while the nipples remain high. Dr. Hasen might suggest using Strattice™ to hold the breast up and support the implant.
  • Ruptured Implants: Both silicone and saline implants can rupture for a number of reasons. Although implant rupture is not dangerous, it does cause visible deformities such as deflation. Dr. Hasen normally performs breast implant replacement using silicone gel implants, which are more cohesive than earlier silicone breast implants used in augmentation procedures.

Surgical Revision Options

Breast implant revision surgery is a complex procedure. Scar tissue, thinned skin and changes in the chest anatomy all pose challenges to the surgeon. Only a surgeon with strong technical skills like Dr. Hasen’s can restore a natural appearance. During your procedure, Dr. Hasen may incorporate several techniques to ensure the most successful outcome.

During breast implant revision, Dr. Hasen can also improve the look of elongated or misshapen nipples. This is a relatively simple addition that can make a world of difference for patients bothered by the appearance of their nipples.

Strattice

Strattice is a dermal graft made from porcine (pig) tissue. It is used to reinforce natural breast tissue and support the implant. This helps create a smoother, more normal-looking breast and reduces implant migration within the breast pocket. Dr. Hasen often uses Strattice for patients who have experienced implant rippling, implant displacement, bottoming out or capsular contracture.

Implant Replacement

With implant replacement, Dr. Hasen caters to a woman’s changing aesthetic preference, allowing her to choose a different implant style or size. Implant replacement may also be used to restore a normal shape when implant rupture occurs.

Non-Surgical Revision

Complications that arise from breast augmentation, such as capsular contracture, sometimes can be treated without surgery. Dr. Kent V. Hasen offers a groundbreaking technique known as Aspen External Ultrasound or Aspen After Surgery Procedure. This procedure is recommended for women whose implants have hardened because of scar tissue growth. It can help with correcting high riding implants and painful implants as well. It is usually part of an overall treatment plan that includes compression wrapping, massage techniques and external ultrasound treatments.
