"I've had a breast surgery, but I think they need to be redone"
Revision breast surgery can be more complicated than your first operation and we pride ourselves on taking the time to listen, understand, and develop a plan that will allow you to achieve your goals. Many times, there may even be an interval during which time we need to wait and allow your body to heal and allow for the inflammation to decrease prior to embarking on a revision.
The emotional toll of a revision operation is many times greater than that of the initial operation. Our team is here to guide you through the process. Your goals are still achievable. We will create a clear path that fits within your timeline and optimizes your health.
"My Breasts are Drooping"
Even if your first surgery was implants only, life, children, and time can cause your breasts to sag. This is called breast ptosis. Some is normal, but too much can make you feel like your body doesn’t reflect how you feel. Options for revision surgery depend upon whether you want the same size implant, a bigger implant or a smaller implant. A bigger implant means a smaller lift and sometimes shorts scars. A smaller implant will usually require a bigger lift and longer scars. These are of course generalizations. Its best to talk with Dr. Rankin so that he can better understand your goals and create a personalized plan.
"My Breasts fall into my Armpits"
If you are like 90% of the women with implants in the United States, then your implants are under your muscle. This gives a beautiful natural result, but with time, they tend to shift towards your armpit. Sometimes, this means that all you need is tightening of the breast implant pocket, called a capsulorrhaphy. This alone can restore the cleavage you thought was lost.
