Secondary Breast Surgery
Breast implants are a serious decision, but not a lifetime commitment. As our bodies naturally age and change, or our lifestyle evolves over time, some patients with implants may seek more balance, symmetry and/or more or less volume in their breasts. Breast revision surgery or secondary breast surgery may also be desired if the results from the initial implant surgery are less than desired.
Depending on a patient’s individual needs, a secondary breast surgery may involve replacing or removing implants (known as an explant surgery), a breast lift, simultaneous implant exchange with fat (SIEF), our exclusive Scarless Skin Tightening, or a combination of these procedures. Our Plastics team is here to help you understand your options, and create a customized approach to your revision surgery, one that is designed achieve your best results.
Not all Plastic Surgeons have achieved the level of skill and expertise in breast revision surgery as our surgeons. ICLS is renowned for offering the most advanced technologies and innovative surgical solutions of any stand-alone facility in Canada, giving our doctors exceptional advantage in achieving your desired results. One example is our use of P4HB mesh support in secondary breast surgeries. The mesh acts as a lattice for new tissue ingrowth and regeneration, resulting in a stronger support for breast implants. This material is naturally broken down into CO2 and H2O by the body, providing stability during the healing process.
