Breast Revision Surgery (and What We Do to Prevent It)

Complications from breast augmentation surgery are rare, but we do see them at the Plastic Surgery Group of New Jersey. The overwhelming majority of our breast augmentation patients enjoy their implants for many years, but occasionally we see patients from other practices that have developed a complication and require additional or revision surgery to fix it.

Revision surgery can involve replacing the original pair of implants with a new pair, or simply removing them altogether.

Skin Sparing in Mastectomy and Reconstruction

Skin Sparing MastectomySkin-sparing mastectomy was developed to minimize the deformity that results following removal of breast tissue for treatment of breast cancer. Two generations ago, skin muscle, nipple and all the surrounding lymph nodes were removed at the sign of breast cancer and this resulted in a cure. Over the years through intensive studies, it became obvious that the breast tissue is not usually associated with the breast skin so removal of the cancer could be safely performed scooping it out like taking a walnut out of its shell, leaving the skin muscle and lymph nodes intact if they were not involved.
