The Different Types of Revision Surgery in Beverly Hills

Have you had bad results from a surgery performed by another doctor and were left with unsatisfactory results? If so, you are not alone, as it is a relatively common situation. Fortunately, Dr. Gabriel Chiu is an expert at revision surgeries. Correcting problems with an earlier procedure is a challenging task, but Dr. Chiu and the staff at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery are the go-to experts in the area. Here are some of the different types of revision surgeries that can be performed:

Capsular Contracture

Capsular contracture is the infrequent problem of malformed scar tissue around a breast implant after breast augmentation surgery. During a breast augmentation procedure, a pocket in the breast tissue is formed and the implant is inserted. As the tissue heals after the procedure, a capsule of scar tissue develops to hold the implant in place. When this capsule contracts, thickens or squeezes the implant, the breast can harden or even become distorted. This is when capsular contracture occurs. Capsular contracture can be corrected through surgery which will improve the condition of the breasts.

Breast Reconstruction

Most women seek breast reconstruction typically after a mastectomy, injury, or birth defect. In several cases, breast reconstruction is performed immediately after mastectomy, but it is always important to consult with a plastic surgeon to determine the best plan of action for your body. Breast reconstruction is designed to reestablish a natural and symmetrical appearance of   the female upper body. This will maintain body proportion but mostly breast reconstruction will boost self-confidence after losing one or both breasts or lack of breasts due to a biological abnormality.

Scar Revision

If you are tired of or embarrassed of an unattractive scar or a scar that impedes movement, then a scar revision procedure could be right for you. Whether the scar is the result of a traumatic injury or a previous surgery, a scar revision procedure can improve your appearance.

Scar revision surgery is one of the most common reconstructive surgery procedures.

Rhinoplasty Revision

A rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery, is a procedure that is intended to produce results that last a lifetime. However, rhinoplasty revision is desired by individuals who did not get the physical appearance they anticipated with their first procedure. With a rhinoplasty revision procedure, a patient must undergo a following nose job in order to repair undesirable results from the previous surgery.

Liposuction Revision Surgery

Liposuction revision can commonly result from changes in health or a sudden weight gain. Primary liposuction procedures can be an effective way to eliminate fat deposits from areas of the body that are resilient to diet and exercise. In most cases, liposuction can provide enduring benefits that can last many years. However, with various circumstances which cause weight gain, liposuction revision surgery may be needed, due to unexpected irregularities developing as the body changes.

Gynecomastia Revision

Men of all ages can be affected by the condition Gynecomastia, which is the appearance of oversized male breasts. In order to correct this problem and improve their sense of well being, many men decide to undergo Gynecomastia surgery. However, because of diet, genetics or the use of certain medications and drugs, some men can eventually gain back their enlarged breasts. In other cases, some men who did not get the results they desired the first time around may decide to undergo a following procedure to improve their appearance.
