Revision Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is a very fulfilling procedure that should give you the natural-looking, fuller breasts you've always wanted. However, a number of breast augmentation patients will eventually want their implants removed or exchanged, some with complications that must be addressed. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kouros Azar has earned a reputation as one of the top surgeons for revision breast augmentation in the Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, and Oxnard areas. His integrity, skills, and ingenuity have helped thousands of women to have the breasts they want and results that last.
If you are unsatisfied with your initial breast augmentation results, or if you are just curious about a change, request a consultation with Dr. Azar to discuss the possibilities. Or you can call our office at (805) 250-0077 and one of our knowledgeable, friendly staff members will schedule your appointment.
This woman, age 65, came to see Dr. Azar because her breast implants had become hard and painful over time. Dr. Azar performed revision breast augmentation to replace her old implants with new silicone implants. For more photos of Dr. Azar's revision breast augmentation results, visit his photo gallery.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
The Breasts You Deserve
Some of Dr. Azar's breast augmentation revision patients were satisfied with their initial breast augmentation results, but over time their bodies and aesthetic values changed. These women choose to have their implants removed or exchanged for either smaller or larger implants. They may also be seeking a newer type of implant that they feel better suits their current needs.
Dr. Azar also helps women who, unfortunately, are disappointed with the results another surgeon achieved through their initial surgery (or sometimes several prior surgeries). These women may have developed complications which include:
- Capsular contracture, or hardening of the scar tissue around the breasts that can cause discomfort and a misshapen appearance
- Aesthetic concerns such as asymmetry, bottoming out (implant looks like its falling with a bulge at the bottom of the breast) , symmastia or "uniboob", and "double bubble" deformity
- Ptosis, or breast sagging that developed after or became worse with the weight of the implants
- Implant rupture, in which the filling of the implant may have escaped the breast pocket, requiring removal
Dr. Azar will develop a customized treatment plan to address your unique breast augmentation revision needs, and restore your breasts and your confidence.
A board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Azar develops innovative surgical techniques and is dedicated to providing exceptional outcomes.
Why Dr. Azar for Revision Surgery?
Women who find themselves facing a secondary breast augmentation procedure are often in a different frame of mind than a first-time breast augmentation patient. These women are often dealing with disappointment and frustration, as opposed to excitement. Dr. Azar and his remarkable staff take the time to listen to these concerns, and make sure that each patient fully understands all of her options. The practice has earned a reputation as a resource for women seeking information about breast augmentation revision.
Additionally, the surgery is much more complex than primary breast augmentation due to issues such as scar tissue, liquid from ruptured implants, and compromised tissue quality. In addition to being a top plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Azar is an engineer, a perfectionist, and an innovator. He has developed effective surgical solutions to many of the problems that necessitate revision surgery. For example, through his extensive work in breast reconstruction, he is skilled in the use of Strattice™, a biologic tissue matrix that can reinforce the breast pocket to support implants that are drooping, malpositioned or have bottomed out.
Dr. Azar will never cut corners when it comes to safety and quality. He operates only at major hospitals and surgery centers, and uses only board-certified M.D. anesthesiologists. Whether you require a small adjustment or a major revision, Dr. Azar and his team will ensure that you are cared for at the highest level.
