In some cases, issues and potential complications may occur, such as capsular contracture following breast augmentation. In these instances, reoperative cosmetic surgery is required to correct the issue and restore the appearance of the breasts.

Common Reoperative Cosmetic Surgeries

Breast augmentation – A popular cosmetic procedure that involves using implants to enlarge the appearance of the breasts. Common reasons for reoperative breast augmentation include:

  • Capsular contracture – Abnormal scar tissue formation around the implant that can alter its shape.
  • Implant rupture – Can occur in both saline and silicone implants. More noticeable with saline.
  • Implant shifting – The implant may shift from its place causing folding or rippling.

Liposuction – A body contouring procedure that targets and removes stubborn fat all around the body

  • Irregular shape – The contour produced by the procedure may be odd, uneven, or asymmetrical due to visible depressions or dimpling.

Rhinoplasty – Nose surgery to enhance the size, shape, and appearance of the nose.

  • Difficulty breathing – The shape of the nasal pathways may be too narrow leading to difficulty breathing through the nose.
