Although breast augmentation is a common and safe procedure, sometimes revisions need to be made due to patient dissatisfaction, implant replacement or changes in the breasts that happen naturally over time. Breast revision surgery can involve a number of different approaches in which the specific problem is addressed, but the common goal is to improve upon the look of the breasts and the patient’s overall health. Here at Yarish Plastic Surgery, our goal is to provide Houston and Lake Jackson patients with the ultimate experience in care, comfort and results.

Patients in the Lake Jackson and Houston, TX areas can expect expert care from the surgical consultation to post-operative visits. Our comprehensive rejuvenation concept at Yarish Plastic Surgery ensures a quality and seamless patient experience.

About Breast Revision

Breast revision surgery is a procedure that requires a skilled physician that is knowledgeable in repairing the results of previous surgeries. It is important that the results are natural in appearance, meet the patients’ preference and are performed to minimize the possibility of future complications. Our doctors will perform a thorough consultation with you to determine the source of the current problem and to develop a plan for revision. There are a number of types of breast revision surgeries that can be performed, and a customized surgical plan will be created for you.


Ruptured Implants

A rupture can occur in both saline and silicone implants. This can happen when the implant somehow develops a leak. While the patient’s health is not in danger from a leaking implant, it can affect the appearance of the breasts. There are several options available to Houston and Lake Jackson patients to remedy the situation. An implant like the original can replace it or patients can choose another implant option. Some patients may wish to have both implants removed, while others may prefer a different technique for breast augmentation. These options can be discussed during your consultation.

Capsular contracture is an unfortunate risk with breast augmentation. Patients can develop this complication within the first year after augmentation and can even happen years out. Capsular contracture is thought to occur due to the introduction of bacteria around the implant. This causes scar tissue to develop around the implant which causes an unnatural appearance and distortion of the breast. Sometimes this can be a painful condition, but our doctors can skillfully correct this to create maximum results and minimal downtime.

Double Bubble

This issue can occur two ways. One form of double bubble is the implant descends below to inferior border of the breast pocket. This creates a tight band at the base of the breast and the appearance of a bubble. The other form is when the breast tissue slides off the implant from above, giving the appearance of a Snoopy. Both forms of double bubble give the breast and unnatural appearance.

Other common issues occur such as the implants moving too close together, uneven or rippling. An experienced surgeon can expertly correct such issues, giving patients beautifully natural and comfortable results.


Treatment Plan

At Yarish Plastic Surgery, we believe that skin and body rejuvenation is an evolutionary process that does not begin and end solely with the surgery itself.

While we do know that surgery is the most dramatic and gratifying part of the rejuvenation process, our doctors can enhance and even maximize your surgery results with our “comprehensive rejuvenation concept”. This concept is essentially a treatment plan specifically designed for each procedure in order to prepare the skin and body for surgery and to aid the healing process following your surgery.

We do recognize that many Houston and Lake Jackson residents do not have the time or inclination to take advantage of the complete program, and we want to assure you that your surgical results will be the best attainable anywhere. However, if you are in a position to take advantage of the “comprehensive rejuvenation concept,” you will find the entire experience to be more relaxing, and you will know that you have treated yourself to the most unique and gratifying experience that plastic surgery has to offer. And you will know that you have availed yourself of the ultimate in skin and body rejuvenation.

In order to make this experience more convenient and affordable, we have created a combination of ultimate experience packages specifically tailored to enhance each procedure. Our doctors strongly recommend that you take advantage of this “comprehensive rejuvenation concept.” The program outlined for you will be instituted pre-operatively, and will be continued post-operatively until healing is complete.
