Am I A Good Candidate For Breast Revision Surgery?

Breast revisions can be the answer when the client is not happy with the size, shape, symmetry or placement of her implants. Examples of this are leaking implants, significant fluctuation in weight, or breast cancer.

Other common reasons for seeking breast revision surgery include:

  • Capsular contracture: hardened, irregular scar tissue that has formed around the implant
  • Rippling
  • Sagging
  • Misshapen nipples
  • Changes in breast appearance after childbirth due to breastfeeding
  • Gaps created by saline implants.

Dr. Capizzi offers a confidential, discreet consultation for all cases. At the time of consultation, he will answer any questions, review medical history and previous surgeries.

“Upgrading” Your Breast Augmentation

As techniques and technology evolve, some women may wish to “upgrade” to the newest and most versatile style of implants. Dr. Capizzi is an FDA-appointed co-investigator for Allergan’s fifth-generation cohesive gel Gummy Bear implants as well as a co-investigator for Sientra and their line of implants, making him among the top breast revision authority. The Gummy Bear implants provide the greatest longevity in holding shape. He has helped hundreds of women to redefine and rejuvenate their silhouettes.

Breast Revision Techniques

Dr. Capizzi will tailor his surgical approach for each breast revision procedure, which each present a unique set of variables. In most cases, the doctor is able to use the original incision point to avoiding further scarring. Issues like a capsular contracture respond particularly well to this approach. If a breast lift is necessary in conjunction with a revision, Dr. Capizzi may extend the incision to produce the ideal outcome.

Some other common revision techniques may involve improvements to the implant pocket; fat grafting; and reinforcement with a biodegradable mesh like Galaflex, or Seri, a biodegradable silk mesh material that acts like human breast tissue. Additionally, Dr. Capizzi is well versed in Acellular Dermis, an innovative procedure to reinforce and regenerate soft tissue. Most often due to experience, no mesh is necessary to repair or reverse the pockets. This saves time for healing, finances, and more procedure risk.

Dr. Capizzi’s scrupulous and skillful technique will help preserve the sensation and function of the areola. Regardless of the procedure, those concerned about future breastfeeding can rest assured.

Breast Revision Recovery

Recovery times vary from patient to patient. Dr. Capizzi’s patients find his efficient surgical technique to speed up healing, with minimal pain or discomfort. Each client will receive a customized aftercare plan that addresses individual postoperative needs. It is the recommendation of Dr. Capizzi to avoid strenuous activities for several days following the procedure. This includes lifting and/or high impact aerobics. On occasion the doctor may use small breast drains to excise fluids, which will need removal within 48 hours. Gauze-covered sutures will dissolve within 30 days.

As an innovator in the breast revision industry, Dr. Capizzi has designed the Capizzi Custom Bra. This is an original device designed for breast revision patients to improve surgical results and speed up recovery. It is one of the reasons so many woman have found Dr. Capizzi’s revision to be the least once they ever need.
