Correcting Botched Breast Reconstruction

Corrective Breast Reconstruction

Using sophisticated and innovative techniques, we usually find that it is possible to substantially improve upon, or even correct, most unsatisfactory results or previous reconstructive failures. This has been our experience, even for women who have previously been told by other doctors that there is little or nothing that could be done for them.

Common issues that we address include:

  • Unsatisfactory or inadequate overall appearance, contour or symmetry
  • Drooping or sagging of natural tissue reconstruction
  • Reconstructed breasts that are too small or too large
  • Implant complications such as capsular contracture, rippling or a shift in the position of an implant
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Chest or arm stiffness
  • Complete failure of a prior reconstruction
  • Radiation related problems

Corrective breast surgery is often challenging, and every situation requires a unique solution. Taken together, our experience and comprehensive skill set allow us address each situation using a wide range of techniques –from simple approaches such as implant revision, to the most advanced microsurgical procedures performed anywhere in the world.
