SECONDARY OR REVISION BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast augmentation or breast enhancement surgery is one of the most commonly performed operations by Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon Dr. Hoefflin. According to the American Society for Plastic Surgery (ASPS), more than 350,000 breast augmentations are performed annually in the United States. With the FDA’s approval of silicone gel breast implants in November 2006, it is likely that the number of Los Angeles Breast Augmentations will continue to steadily increase. With increases in the number breast enhancement procedures, more women may be faced with complications following their breast enhancement surgery.

Individual patients may have experienced a change in their overall breast shape since their initial operation because of pregnancy, weight loss, or aging-related factors. In addition, there are limitations in the aesthetic improvement that may occur after specifically, saline breast implant augmentation. Following breast augmentation with silicone gel or saline breast implants, patients may experience any number of the following complications: breast asymmetry; malpositioning; bottoming out, or high riding implants; implant deflation or rupture; capsular contraction; visible wrinkling or rippling; double bubble deformities; or synmastia.

Dr. Hoefflin specializes in breast revision or corrective breast augmentation procedures to improve the undesirable results of previous plastic surgery. These operations are technically demanding and require a greater level of skill compared to the initial or primary breast augmentation procedure. They can represent some of the most challenging operations, even for highly qualified and skilled plastic surgeons. Dr. Hoefflin corrects problems created from your initial breast augmentation by using a combination of advanced techniques in plastic surgery, and can restore your breast aesthetics to a more youthful, attractive, and beautiful appearance.

During your consultation with Dr. Hoefflin, the various techniques and options available for secondary or revision breast surgery will be discussed at length.
