tailored treatment plan
During your appointment, we will thoroughly assess your medical records and past implant history to review what you hope to gain from moving forward with the breast implant revision. We’ll then craft a tailored treatment plan to ensure that you attain the desired outcome.
Before undergoing Breast Implant Revision or revision, you’ll need to consult with one of our plastic surgeons. You’ll also need to get some blood work done and if appropriate have us seen your most current mammogram. You must follow your doctor’s instructions for preoperative care to ensure a successful outcome. This may include stopping anti-inflammatories, blood thinning products, and in some cases, if the surgery is done with a breast lift, we’ll ask patients to stop smoking 4 weeks prior and 4 weeks after the surgery. This protects the skin on the breast and helps the healing process move more rapidly.
achieve the best results
At Hass Plastic Surgery, we believe every patient has unique needs and goals for their Breast Implant Revision or revision. That’s why we take the time to carefully examine each patient and create a personalized treatment plan designed to help them achieve the best results.
During your consultation, we will discuss any concerns you have about your implant size, shape, and feel. We offer a variety of options for breast implants, including saline, or the silicone gel-filled implants, (often called cohesive “gummy bear” implants). We also offer different shapes and sizes so you can customize the look that best suits you.
Implants are measured by their volume in cubic centimeters (ccs). In our office, we suggest you focus on the ‘look’ of what you want to achieve rather than the ‘cc’s as a number. Our doctors use a sizing system with photos that can truly help better explain a patient’s desired look rather than them telling us what they think they should be. This is a very personal part of the exam and we always assure our patients that they WILL get the look they want.
We also take accurate measurements in your consultation to be sure you truly get the size you desire with this implant replacement. We use Natrelle implants which come in all sizes, shapes and fullnesses so matching your desire will be easy to achieve.
Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel and have a more natural feel than saline implants. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution and offer greater flexibility for breast augmentation. The look is the same, it is more the feel that has many women often choosing the FDA approved Natrelle silicone implants. Whether with saline or silicone, your desired look can be achieved.
Fat transfer is ideal for those who wish to enhance their figure yet would prefer to circumvent breast implants. This method involves the harvesting of fat from other body regions, such as the hips or thighs, and then transferring it into your breasts. Additionally, this process can significantly improve skin texture and tone while providing a voluminous shape that helps accentuate curves in all the right places.
Round implants are the go-to selection for breast enhancement, creating a voluminous form. This option provides a rounded and full look to your breasts. Teardrop implants aim to capture the anatomical shape of a healthy breast for those looking for a more natural look.
High-profile implants are designed to provide more projection than moderate and low-profile implant types. These implants have a smaller base width, making them ideal for those with narrow chest walls who want to achieve maximum volume.
Moderate-profile implants offer a balanced look between high and low profiles, while low-profile implants have a wider base width, resulting in more forward projection. Each option provides a different degree of fullness, depending on the shape and size that best fits your body type.
