Breast Implant Revision

Refine Your Bust Enhancement

Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries in the United States. Thousands of women have achieved enhanced bust lines that boost their confidence, expand their clothing options, and accentuate their figures. However, some women find themselves feeling dissatisfied with the results of their surgery because of persistent pain, or aesthetics that fall short of their goals. If you are not satisfied with the results of an augmentation procedure, Dr. Kamran Khoobehi performs breast implant revision to help you achieve the comfort and appearance you deserve. He has performed many successful breast revision procedures for cases both complex and common, using both traditional and advanced techniques. Contact our New Orleans office today to learn more about how Dr. Khoobehi can help you achieve precisely the bust line you desire.

Revision Methods

In addition to offering patients the classic method of breast implant revision (the removal and replacement of an existing implant), Dr. Khoobehi also performs fat grafting. This revolutionary solution involves the removal of unwanted fat from one part of the body for transferral to the breasts. The results are both natural-looking and long-lasting. Dr. Khoobhi is a world-renowned authority on this procedure, and participated in the Food and Drug Administration’s largest clinical trial.

If you and Dr. Khoobehi determine that replacing your implant is the best solution to achieve your goals, he usually recommends submuscular placement, or the placement of the implant beneath the pectoral muscle. This usually achieves the most natural-looking results. In some cases, implant replacement can be combined with fat transfer to achieve the best results.

Breast Implant Revision Candidates

Common reasons that women pursue breast implant revision surgery include:

  • Dissatisfaction with the size achieved after the initial procedure
  • Rippling, or wrinkling, of the implant
  • A ruptured saline or silicone implant
  • Undesirable settling of the implant or surrounding tissue
  • Capsular contracture, or the excessive tightening of the scar tissue that naturally forms around a breast implant
  • Poor placement of the implant

The best candidates for breast implant revision are in good health, and are fully informed of the risks and benefits of the procedure. If you are interested in fat transfer, you should

  • Have enough body fat for the procedure
  • Undergo a mammography with positive results
  • Have enough breast tissue to facilitate the fat graft
  • Follow up with another mammography a year after surgery
  • Have realistic expectations

Your Consultation

Dr. Khoobehi’s personal philosophy is that surgeons should never operate on an ill-informed patient. He makes a point of fully informing his patients of the risks and benefits associated with every viable option so that they can choose the solution that will bring them the greatest satisfaction. This involves a combination of compassion, expertise, and technology. Dr. Khoobehi will listen carefully to your concerns and wishes, and take ample time explaining how you can achieve them. He also uses advanced 3D technology to fully evaluate the current state of your bust, and to create an effective revision plan.
