breast capsular contraction

Welcome to the best breast revision in San Francisco

This site is to provide critical information for women who have had breast augmentation, either silicone or normal saline implants, and are having a problem with their breast implants. We will cover the major issues of breast revision implant surgery on this website. They will include breast implant deflation or rupture, capsular contracture, breast asymmetry, double bubble, and skin laxity.

The skill and experience of the surgeon are especially critical for breast implant revision surgery. This surgery may be as simple as replacing a deflated normal saline implant or as complicated as a severe capsular contracture with rupture of the silicone implant; breast pain and/or severe asymmetry might also be present. Whichever the case, the surgeon must have the experience to deal with these issues.

Dr. Delgado is a seasoned cosmetic plastic surgeon who has done hundreds of these complicated cases. This website will focus on breast implant revision surgery.

What is a breast Implant revision?

Breast implant revision surgery is a procedure that corrects problems that developed following previous breast augmentation surgery. Breast implants are foreign bodies and are un-natural to the breast and over time, the implant require maintenance. Problems may include hardening from capsular contraction (concentric scarring), various types of mal-position, deflation or rupture, or the result of pregnancy. Breast revision surgery is also performed for elective reasons, such as a change in type, size or projection of the implant. This would include switching from saline to silicone breast implants, or vice versa. The objective of the breast implant revision is to restore the appearance of the breasts based on your specific needs. Dr. Delgado spend a significant amount of time in understanding your goals. Breast surgery which requires elective changes can wait until it fits a patient’s schedule and financial situation. Ruptured implants should be removed promptly. This minimizes further scarring, and in the case of silicone breast implants, the spread of silicone into the breast tissue.
