 At Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX, you'll find a range of services provided by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe. One of the many services his practice offers is breast revision surgery, an essential procedure that can address a variety of issues and concerns after initial breast surgery. But what exactly is breast revision surgery, and why might you need it? 

What is breast revision surgery? 

Breast revision surgery is a secondary procedure performed after a primary breast augmentation, reduction, or reconstruction. This procedure is typically conducted to correct issues or change the aesthetics following the initial surgery. Dr. Dauwe possesses the requisite skill and expertise to ensure satisfactory outcomes for breast revision surgery in Dallas, TX. 

What issues can breast revision surgery correct? 

There are several reasons why you might consider breast revision surgery, including:  

  • Capsular contracture: This is when scar tissue forms around the breast implant, causing the breast to harden. It can lead to discomfort and a change in the shape or position of the breast. 
  • Implant malposition: Sometimes, the implants can shift from their ideal position, leading to an asymmetrical appearance. 
  • Implant rupture or deflation: If the implants rupture or leak, they will need to be replaced. 
  • Aesthetic dissatisfaction: You might desire a change in implant size or wish to switch from saline to silicone implants (or vice versa). 

Are you a good candidate for breast revision surgery? 

Not everyone who has had previous breast surgery is a candidate for breast revision surgery. However, if you are experiencing any of the aforementioned complications or if you're simply unsatisfied with your current appearance, you might be a good candidate. It's crucial to discuss your concerns with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Dauwe, who can provide personalized advice based on your specific needs and health history.
