Helping You Realize Your Aesthetic Goals

Breast implants involve a relatively simple surgical procedure, but it’s a procedure that can introduce various postoperative problems, which may require a breast revision with Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS in Newport Beach. After making a thorough and accurate diagnosis of the issues you find yourself facing, Dr. Wirth will employ one of a variety of techniques to correct your concerns and resolve the problems related to your previous breast implants.

Am I a Candidate For Breast Augmentation Revision?

Dr. Wirth will work closely with you to evaluate the outcome of your previous breast surgery, and help you decide if a breast revision is the right course of action. Any generally healthy woman who has experienced a complication or concern with a previous breast enhancement makes a strong candidate for revision. Some of the more common reasons include:

  • Problems with breast implant position
  • Problems with patient’s tissue
  • Implant malfunctions
  • Change in preferences
  • Replacement of implants

How Does Breast Revision Work?

Techniques for an effective breast augmentation revision depend on the specific and unique difficulties you face after receiving your previous augmentation. Surgery may involve the replacement of implants, reinforcement of tissue, or correction of a complication. Given the surgical nature of such a procedure, anesthesia will be used to reduce pain and discomfort.

In order for your breast enhancement correction to be effective, you’ll work very closely with Dr. Wirth to identify all problems arising from your original breast enhancement and to strategize the type of operation that will yield the best corrective results. Together, you’ll design a procedural plan that expertly addresses your concerns and effectively restores your quality of life.

What Happens After Breast Revision Surgery?

Immediately following your procedure, expect swelling, pain, and irritation at incision sites. At the close of the operation, all incisions will be sutured and properly dressed. You may also be given an elastic bandage or support bra to help reduce swelling and to support the breasts. As with any surgery, be sure to follow all directions for postoperative care provided by Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS and his team.

Implant Exchange

Implant exchanges can be easily performed, especially by Dr. Wirth. He will work with you to ensure that the newly placed implants leave your breasts looking beautiful and natural.

You may decide to exchange your implants if you:

  • Would like to change your breast size to larger or smaller
  • Have a ruptured implant that must be replaced
  • Your implants are older and need replacement
  • The augmentation did not achieve the results you wanted
  • You are experiencing capsular contracture

Breast Explant (Implant Removal)

Breast implants can be surgically removed. People choose to have their breast implants removed for many reasons, including a wish to return to natural breast size, or health concerns. Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS has performed breast implant removal procedures to correct breast implant surgeries performed by other surgeons if the results are unsatisfactory or uneven.

Capsular Contracture

Capsular contracture is a condition that occurs when the scar tissue which naturally forms around the implant tightens and becomes uncomfortable, or distorts the shape of the breast. Capsular contracture is resolved by removing the scar tissue and the original implants. You can choose to have the original implants replaced with newer ones during the same operation. 

Symptoms of capsular contracture include:

  • Pain or discomfort
  • Distorted breast shape
  • Rippling
  • The breasts feel harder than they should
