While the goal of plastic surgery is to achieve a desired aesthetic result, this, unfortunately, isn’t always the case. Sometimes a revisional surgery may be necessary to correct a previous surgery and requires a surgeon with experience in this area. Unsatisfactory breast surgery may include such problems as asymmetrical breasts, synmastia, inverted nipples, capsular contracture, malposition of the implants, rippling, and conversion of the implants to below or above the muscle. Complications from a previous breast implant procedure can cause physical discomfort and pain.
Breast implant revision surgery can relieve many of the physical problems and poor cosmetic appearance caused by a previous breast augmentation by removing scar tissue or repositioning the implant. Breast implant replacement can improve cosmetic appearance by replacing a deflated implant, or by replacing the previous implant with a different type, a larger or smaller size, and/or different shape. Some plastic surgery Scottsdale patients choose to have their implants removed permanently. Dr. Shaun Parson is experienced in handling these and other anatomical and physiologic breast conditions, like tuberous breasts, underdeveloped breasts and chest deformities that may require additional surgeries.
