Breast Revision Surgery
Other breast problems.
Over three million women in this country have undergone breast augmentation surgery. Whether the surgery was performed incorrectly or the outcome was poor, there is a growing need for revisionary breast surgery. Dr. Chasan is a well known expert in this field and has performed hundreds of these types of surgeries. He regularly lectures nationally for Allergan, the company that makes breast implants, on this topic and has written several peer-reviewed papers (See published articles for more information)on techniques used for fixing poor results associated with breast surgery.

The most common and treatable complications include capsular contracture, wrinkling knuckling, implants mal-position, deflation (saline implants), ptosis/drooping, double-bubble deformities, and an exaggerated pectoralis major muscular flexion deformity. The vast majority of these are fixable. Many techniques are used in combination such as capsulorrhaphy, capsulotomy, capsulectomy, repositioning of implant sub-muscularly, use of ADM’s (Acellular Dermal Matrix), and mastopexy. In addition, shape and size discrepancies and areolar asymmetries can be addressed.
