REVISION AUGMENTATION & MASTOPEXY

This is an operation performed under a General Anaesthetic with the aim of firstly increasing the volume of the breast (Pure®implant) and then secondly reshaping the breast (Mastopexy) See images below and the information leaflet for more details about the operation

Revision Augmentation & Mastopexy (Uplift)

26yr old who underwent a sub-muscular differential breast augmentation in Dubai 5 years previously. Patient was never happy with the size (too big), shape and look of the breasts. Presented wanting a reduction in size and an uplifted breast.


Please note that revision breast augmentation surgery is often not easy as there are a number of factors to
consider including:

  • 1. The previous anatomical factors as mentioned above for primary augmentation.
  • 2. Placement of implant i.e. above or below the muscle
  • 3. The implant capsule – scarring that occurs around the implant
  • 4. Type of implant
  • 5. Changes of the breast tissue since previous augmentation i.e. thinning of the breast tissue and or drop of the breast tissue off the implant.
  • 6. Trying to compromise by using bigger volumes and not having an Uplift, may result in a visible implant (to touch and feel), increased risks of rippling and further surgery such as an uplift.
Please note that aiming for perfection in a breast augmentation is not realistic as the biggest determinant of your outcome is what your breast looked like prior to surgery. A surgeon can use the same implant in different patients with very different results.
