breast implant revision in scottsdale

While most women who have breast implants are extremely happy with their appearance, some wish to improve their results. A large portion of Dr. Shaw’s practice is dedicated to breast implant revisions, which are specialized procedures designed to improve the results of previous breast surgery.

revision procedures

Implant exchange
This involves removing existing implants and replacing them with new ones. It is commonly performed for women who want to change their current implant size, replace old implants, or minimize implant visibility or rippling. In many instances, this will involve changing implant position from on top of the muscle (sub-glandular) to beneath the muscle (sub-pectoral) or changing from saline to silicone.

These corrective breast surgery procedures involve removing scar tissue (capsulectomy) or making incisions in the scar tissue (capsulotomy) that surrounds the implant to produce a softer, more natural appearance and feel.

This advanced breast surgery technique is used to reposition breast implants that are either too far apart (“laterally displaced”), too close (“symmastia”) or too low (“bottomed out”). Tacking sutures are placed within the breast capsule to reconstruct the implant pocket or space.

Dr. Shaw uses his own techniques to make tremendous improvement in these challenging cases. As each patient is unique, Dr. Shaw will design a customized plan to meet your specific needs and goals.
