For most women, breast enhancement surgery provides life-changing results that can transform their bodies and send their self-confidence soaring.

Regardless of why you may no longer love the look of your breast implants, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi can help. At SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, Dr. Kelishadi performs a complete range of breast enhancement surgeries – including breast revision – to help women achieve the look they desire and the confidence they deserve. Find more information below about how a breast revision may be beneficial for you.

Who needs a breast revision?

Breast revision surgery may be appropriate and effective for a woman who is unhappy with the results of her original breast augmentation surgery, has experienced complications associated with her breast implants, has developed changes to her breasts and/or breast implants over time, or has simply had a change in her personal preferences. Some of the most common concerns that lead women to consider breast revision surgery include:

  • Ruptured implant
  • Capsular contracture
  • Implant displacement
  • Bottoming out
  • Surgical error
  • Unhappy with overall appearance of implants
  • Implants are too large or too small
  • Inverted nipples
  • Nipples pointing downward
  • Sagging breast implants
  • Droopy breasts
  • Stretch marks
  • Implant rippling
  • Change in lifestyle or preferences

How is a breast revision performed?

Breast revision surgery is a highly individualized procedure, and the details of a breast revision will vary from patient to patient based on the woman’s individual needs, goals, anatomy, and other factors. In some cases, breast revision surgery may involve removing or replacing the existing implants. For patients who are concerned about drooping breast implants, a breast revision may include a breast lift, nipple repositioning, and other techniques. Like breast augmentation, breast revision surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. However, breast revision surgery requires a more complex set of techniques compared with an initial breast augmentation or breast lift, meaning the procedure often takes longer than the patient’s original surgery.

During your consultation for a breast revision in Orange County, Dr. Kelishadi will examine your breasts and existing implants, discuss your specific concerns, get a firm idea of your desired outcome, and create a customized surgical plan just for you.

Is a breast implant revision always successful?

Patients considering breast implant revision surgery should understand that their current anatomy and alterations made during their original breast augmentation may impose limitations on what is possible with a revision. However, when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, like Dr. Kelishadi, breast revision surgery is often highly corrective and can provide a dramatically more pleasing look to help restore the patient’s self-esteem, beauty, and femininity.
