    Breast reoperation

    Breast making of Theall

    There are more things to consider such as fundamental cause, operation timing, method, etc., than the first operation. We strongly recommend consulting with a doctor with experiences before making a decision

  • Reoperation types
    • Serious asymmetric breast
      Regardless of the difference of the individual breast size, there are some cases of using the same size prosthesis filled with saline solution, or the spaces for prosthesis are different. Difference of sizes, under folding lines of breasts, or the pocket shapes for prosthesis insertion can be corrected by surgery. Also asymmetrical breasts can be corrected by changing the pocket shapes, or the size of the prosthesis.
    • Texture unsatisfaction
      In some cases, the prosthesis is palpable and the texture is not good in those who do not have much breast tissue. The texture problem can be fixed by changing the kind of prosthesis.
    • Prosthetic material damage
      Since we basically use the prosthesis products which is inserted in human bodies certified in USA and Korea, the breakage rate is very low. However, when if the saline solution pack is used and the solution is leaking out gradually or temporarily, reoperation is recommended.
    • Capsular contracture
      When the prosthesis are inserted inside of the body, thin membranes are formed around the prosthesis. ‘Capsular contracture’ is the phenomenon when the membranes are getting thicker and shrinking, and push the settled prosthesis. In this case the prosthesis looks bulging.
    • If you want to replace with cohesive gel
      This is a relatively easy surgery. The replacement is proceeded by the former incision marks. To insert larger size prosthesis, more space should be secured before insertion.
    • If the inserted prosthetic material is not placed well
      If the space for prosthesis was not enough or the size of the prosthesis smaller than the space, the location of prosthesis can be changed during settling period.
  • Reoperation time and the procedure
    • possible period of reoperation

      Reoperation is recommended to be done at least 6 months after the first one.

    Procedure
    Breast reoperation is done using the first surgery scar. We remove the epithelium around the existing prosthetic material and secure more space to insert a new pack of the desired size.

    Prosthesis exchange
    If the prosthesis is damaged or when replace exist prosthesis into smaller one, removing and inserting processes are relatively simple.

    To change into a larger prosthesis
    When replacing the present prosthesis into larger one, or the location of the prosthesis is not propitiate, insert spaces should be enlarged to help new prosthesis could settle easily.

    Capsular contracture case
    Before enlarging the inside spaces and inserting the new prosthesis, the excessive membrane should be removed first.
