Women may choose revision surgery for many reasons, such as lifestyle changes, weight fluctuations, post-pregnancy, or skin laxity. However, some patients experience uncontrollable complications associated with their primary augmentation and require breast revision surgery.
A few weeks ago, I was presented with a female patient interested in breast revision surgery. During the examination, I confirmed that she had a rupture on the left breast and severe scar tissue (capsular contracture) on the right. We also determined that a breast lift would be needed to achieve her desired results.
Since this was a complex breast reconstruction case, I asked plastic surgeon Joel A. Aronowitz from Los Angeles to assist. The surgery was performed at Tower Outpatient Surgery Center, a Medicare Certified Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC). This center is also certified by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
Below are a few photos taken during the case. The first shows the saline implant rupture from the left side, and the second is the scar tissue removed from the right.
