Breast augmentation is often assumed to be simple in nature and execution, but it actually requires a great deal of attention.
Appreciation of subtle breast asymmetries, proper surgical planning and execution, and attention to detail are essential for achieving superior results. Unfortunately, these details are often overlooked.
Thus, breast augmentation does not always produce the desired results. This may be due to
poor implant selection, incorrect surgical planning, and inferior surgical techniques.
Corrective breast surgery — also known as secondary breast augmentation — refers to a wide range of procedures that Dr. Siamak Agha performs to fix breasts affected by either a previous surgery or breast augmentation complications.
Many of these previous breast augmentation patients are unhappy with their results and wish to improve their breasts.
It is important to realize that breast augmentation revision is more complicated than initial augmentation, and the proper time for the correct operation to be performed is the first time.
However, Dr. Agha has developed considerable experience with the correction of breast augmentation problems and will make every attempt to improve your results.
What Problems Does Secondary Breast Augmentation Solve?
When a problem arises in your breasts’ appearance, the most crucial first step is diagnosing its cause.
Sometimes, it is due to an excessively large implant that stretched and thinned out your breast skin and tissue, resulting in implant show and rippling. Other times, the problem may be due to an implant that shifted into an unsightly position.
Excess scarring, breast drooping, asymmetry, or any combination of these problems can also contribute to a suboptimal breast appearance.
Secondary breast augmentation is necessary for solving a myriad of problems or issues that Dr. Agha has broadly categorized as follows:
- Problems with final breast size
- Problems that are created surgically or arise due to poor post-op care
- Problems with neglecting a patient’s tissue characteristics
- Problems that come with using breast implants
Explore these problems one by one below.
