Corrective Breast Augmentation in Beverly Hills
Experienced Plastic Surgeon Ensuring You Get the Aesthetic You Want
If you have undergone a previous breast surgery and your aesthetic outcome is not acceptable, corrective breast surgery is an option at our plastic surgery practice.
Corrective breast surgery is reserved for patients who have undergone cosmetic and reconstructive procedures such as:
Reasons for Corrective Breast Surgery
A corrective procedure may be necessary for a variety of reasons. If you have scars that are noticeable, Dr. Aboolian may recommend a scar revision procedure. If you have significant asymmetry in your breasts, there are surgical techniques that can bring them into balance. In some cases, these corrective procedures are covered under the patient’s health insurance policy.
Revision Breast Augmentation
Although breast augmentation is known for high patient satisfaction, there are some patients who need or desire a corrective procedure. This can be performed months or years after your original surgery. Reasons for revision surgery vary widely; the patient may need a minor adjustment or replacement of her breast implants.
There are several reasons someone would seek a revision procedure, such as:
- Desire to change implant size
- Switch from saline to silicone implants
- Volume adjustment in saline implants
- Displacement of the implant
- Visible implant rippling
- Capsular contracture
If you suspect a problem with one or both of your breast implants, contact us today to schedule a consultation about revision breast augmentation.
Breast Implant Removal
Due to personal or medical reasons, some patients choose to have their breast implants removed. This procedure is relatively simple and brief. However, there is potential for a poor aesthetic outcome. Skin wrinkling and scarring can occur, especially if your breast augmentation was performed many years ago. A subsequent cosmetic procedure such as mastopexy (breast lift) can often help to minimize the appearance of these undesirable effects.
Nipple or Areola Surgery
Nipple surgery can be performed on patients whose actual nipple projection or nipple depth is considered enlarged, or for individuals whose nipples are inverted. The areola is the circular area, which surrounds the actual nipple. Procedures can be performed to enlarge or decrease this area. These are usually minor procedures and require minimal recovery time.
