Not Happy with Your Implants? Let Dr. Kearney Fix the Problem.

Breast Implant Revision San Diego, CABreast augmentation procedures don’t always turn out as planned. Sometimes patients have issues with scar tissue. Sometimes they seek to change implant size. And sometimes the original augmentation by another provider didn’t turn out to the patient plan. Fortunately, breast implant revision surgery can correct the problems.

Dr. Kearney handles many revision procedures. He has the experience and the expertise to correct the former unsatisfactory outcomes. The results are patients who have the dramatic improvement in their satisfaction with their results.

Why do women opt for revision surgery?

There are five reasons women usually choose to have breast implant revision surgery.

  1. To change the implant size or type (saline to silicone or vice versa)
  2. To replace a damaged or ruptured implant
  3. To deal with scar tissue tightening around the implant
  4. To correct or change the initial augmentation
  5. To adjust to changes in the tissues around the implant due to pregnancy or weight fluctuation

Today’s implants are more reliable than ever before. Plus, now that silicone implants have returned to the market, some women opt to replace their saline implants. Also, issues with natural aging can make the tissue around the implants change.

The procedure

If possible, Dr. Kearney uses the original incisions. If you are experiencing capsular contracture, he will release and remove as much of the old scar tissue (the capsule) as possible. This lowers the risk of future contracture again occurring.

Recovery from revision surgery is somewhat easier than initial augmentation recovery. Often, patients seek to move the implants from atop the chest muscle to behind it. This is more involved than simple replacement of the implants.

Results

Revision surgery with Dr. Kearney can be very satisfying. The patient’s breasts can now occupy a better position, may feel more natural, and present an overall better outcome.

If you’re unhappy with the results of an augmentation procedure, you don’t have to live with the situation. Call Dr. Kearney at (858) 677-9352 and set up a consultation for revision surgery.
