Challenges Encountered

On occasion, even careful planning and excellent surgical technique can produce disappointing surgical results or unmet expectations following breast enhancement surgery procedures such as breast reduction or breast augmentation. Revision surgery may help women who are disappointed with their results immediately after breast surgery as well as those who have seen unwelcome changes in their outcome over time.

Challenges and Solutions

Here you’ll find visual examples of common complications that may result from a breast augmentation.

Bottoming Out & Stretch Deformity

Lengthened nipple-to-fold distance due to skin stretching, resulting in the breast pocket that is lower than desired.

Inferior and Lateral Fold Malpositions
