A Breast Implant Revision with Mastopexies/Lift is performed to correct existing issues that cause a patient dissatisfaction with their current breasts.
— Dr. Mark Anton, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon
Some feel their breasts have dropped and sit too low, are too large, not large enough or have poor shape. Others are concerned about implants that are encapsulated, hard, painful and/or ruptured.
There are many reasons a patient may be unhappy with the current look and feel of their breasts, but this is always correctable. Dr. Anton has corrected several breast cases achieving an outcome that patients did not think would be possible. A good candidate for this procedure has one of the following concerns:
Dr. Anton is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Castle Connolly Top Doctor and completed a Breast Fellowship before starting his practice in Newport Beach, California. Dr. Anton along with Dr. Hartrampf, father of the modern-day breast reconstruction, created the Star Flap Nipple Reconstruction, which is still considered the most popular and widely used technique in nipple and breast reconstruction surgery today.
Additionally, Dr. Anton was one of thirty-five physicians across the country to participate in a 10-year study to determine the safety of silicone implants. His findings, along with those of his colleagues were reported to the U.S. Institutional Review Board, which in 1997 determined silicone implants to be safe to women’s health.
Today, Dr. Anton continues to be on the cutting edge of breast implant safety. He remains confident that smooth silicone gel implants are safe and do not pose any additional risk to women's health. As Dr. Anton explains to his patients, silicone is used in all kinds of medical devices including cheek and chin implants, joint replacements, contraceptive diaphragms, shunts, pumps, and other various medical devices.
The procedure takes approximately 4-5 hours under general anesthesia.
The length of the procedure depends on the amount of current breast tissue to be removed and also the existing status of the current breast implants and positioning. All sutures are internal; there are no external sutures. The incision is placed around the areola and runs vertically from the bottom of the areola down the center of the breast. This incision is a hairline in width and heals extremely well.
