Breast Revision Surgery
Are you dissatisfied with the results of a breast augmentation or other breast surgery?
Breast revision surgery can replace old implants or make other changes to improve the appearance of your breasts.
Dr. Bruce Hermann performs plastic surgery in Denton, TX, and can correct common complications to improve the look of your bustline.
Why Would I Need Breast Revision Surgery?
Complications after breast surgery can occur for any number of reasons, but are often attributed to:
- Ruptured implants
- Excessive scar tissue
- Poor implant placement
- Unrelated health problems
- The work of an unqualified surgeon
With breast revision, Dr. Bruce Hermann can help patients who are unhappy with the results of a past breast surgery to improve their figure and boost their confidence. Dr. Hermann can perform breast revision for patients who have undergone breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, or breast reconstruction.

Which Common Surgical Complications Can Be Corrected?
Over time, breast implants can move out of their correct position within the breast. This can happen to one or both of your breasts, and is usually attributed to gravity, implants that are too heavy, problems with breast skin, or an error in the initial placement. This can lead to an asymmetrical bustline, implants that sit too low on the chest, implants that are too far apart from one another, and implants that move toward each other in the center of the chest.
Breast implants can rupture for several reasons, including wrinkling of the outer shell, natural deterioration over time, and injury to the chest. If you have a leaking saline implant, it can completely deflate as the saline is safely absorbed by your body. Silicone implant ruptures are more serious because the gel leaks out slowly, causing pain and other health complications if the gel spreads to other parts of your body. Dr. Hermann can safely remove and replace faulty breast implants. He can also treat any infection and remove any leaked silicone.
After a breast augmentation, your body will naturally form scar tissue around your breast implants. Capsular contracture occurs when the tissue surrounding the breast implant thickens or hardens, distorting the shape of the implant and causing pain.
During breast revision surgery, Dr. Hermann can remove the built-up scar tissue and replace the implant. Dr. Hermann can reduce the risk of capsular contracture by placing your implants under the muscle or using textured implants. Some patients also choose to remove their breast implants and not replace them.
Although breast implants can become lopsided as they settle in the chest, this condition can also occur in natural breast tissue for patients who have undergone a breast reduction or breast lift procedure. Because there are several variables, your plastic surgeon will plan a correctional surgery that's customized to fit your needs.
Patients who have undergone breast surgery are encouraged to wait until their breasts have finished healing before undergoing revisions. If your breasts have completely healed after your surgery and they're still uneven, Dr. Hermann can reposition the breast tissue or perform a breast lift to help you achieve a more symmetrical bustline.
"I Am So Pleased with the Results!"
From the beginning of this surgical journey, I found the office staff to be welcoming and friendly. They strived to accommodate my schedule and time. After meeting with Dr. Hermann initially, I could see how he sets the tone for his business. He was easy to talk to and patient in answering all of my questions, even when I needed to pop back in once more before my scheduled surgery to confirm my decision and ease my mind over the process. As I'm now 2 months post surgery, I am so pleased with the results! I wish I had done this years ago!...View On Google
I went to Dr. Herman summer 2020 for a breast reduction consultation. I was very nervous about going in and if he was going to be able to get the desired look I wanted. He answered all my questions and spent the time to explain exactly how surgery would go. A few weeks later I scheduled my reduction! Surgery went great and I can’t imagine not doing the surgery. I’m in love with the results and my confidence has skyrocketed. Dr. Herman is a miracle worker!View On Google
