Each year, over 400,000 cosmetic breast surgeries are performed in the United States. Aesthetic breast surgery has some of the highest satisfaction rates for surgical outcomes by providing better proportion and balance to the body. Also, women feel clothes fit them better, leading to an overall increase in confidence. However, a small percentage of women who have had cosmetic breast surgery are not fully satisfied. Many women desire improvement after breast feeding, weight changes, and time. You may want improvement in breast size (larger or smaller), breast shape, implant placement, scars, capsular contraction or implant rippling. Some women experience implant leaks and desire replacement of saline or silicone implants.
Few surgeons embrace the field of revision breast surgery with the enthusiasm of Dr. Kim. He believes secondary breast surgery is more intricate and requires greater artistic skills and surgical planning. Dr. Kim will discuss your concerns and goals. Most importantly, he will DIAGNOSE THE REASONS for your problems. Often your dissatisfaction with breast size, breast shape or body proportions are a result of improper implant size, shape, material, placement, scar formation or capsular contracture. Dr. Kim also corrects poor skin tone, stretch marks, keloid scars, uneven nipple placement and ptosis (drooping).
Revision breast surgery can take many forms. Often patients only require new implants with small alterations in the implant pocket. Saline or silicone implants can be placed depending on patient preference and aesthetic goals. More complicated revisions can involve creating new implant pockets (either below or above the chest muscle), tightening the breast skin, removing scar tissue, simultaneous breast lift and internal support of implants with sutures or biologic materials. Dr. Kim will advise you of your revision options.
