Breast Surgery: The Second Time Around

(press release from The Professional Image, Inc.)

San Diego, CA. - July 21, 2005 -With over 3 million breast augmentation surgeries performed in the United States to date, obtaining bigger breasts through surgery continues to be one of the most popular elective surgeries in the world and shows no signs of slowing down. Unfortunately, as published earlier this year in the medical journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, many surgeons are now seeing an increased need for correctional or revisionary breast surgery.

“Not every single breast augmentation surgery performed is going to turn out 100 percent perfect,” states plastic surgeon Paul E. Chasan, M.D. of La Jolla, California and author of the much read article mentioned above. “As the demand for breast augmentation surgery continues to rise, so does the number of possible future complications.”

However, Dr. Chasan has developed a technique to revise the complications of previous breast surgeries called pocket suturing or as it is technically called, Capsulorrhaphy. According to Dr. Chasan, Capsulorrhaphy is a predictable and effective method of re-contouring the shape and size of the pocket in which the implant lies. This unique and intricate pocket suturing technique results in a more natural and overall better appearance of the breast. This technique can be likened to how popular underwire, padded and gel filled bras are used to help breasts appear fuller, bigger or create more cleavage.

To perform a breast capsulorrhaphy, Dr. Chasan determines the specific problem that needs to be addressed and corrected. Then, depending on the individual situation, proceeds to create a new pocket for the breast implant and places sutures in very specific areas around the pocket to achieve the desired look.

For example, if a patient complains that her breast implants are too far apart, Dr. Chasan will reposition the implant by suturing the pocket on the far outsides, helping the implants to move closer together. If the breast implants are droopy, the sutures will be placed on the bottom side of the pocket, allowing the implants to be pushed up to a more natural position.

According to Dr. Chasan, complications can be due to any number of reasons. Implants can be positioned wrong, or can migrate, which may create a gaping space on the chest. Also, implants can be placed asymmetrically giving the breasts a “lopsided” appearance. Other problems such as implants being too close together pushing the sternum up, and wrinkling or dimpling of the implants can occur. Dr. Chasan stresses that these complications may not always originate with the surgeon. They sometimes can occur because of a patient’s specific anatomy, but patients need to know that there is a lot that can be done to restore the breasts to look natural again.

“Breast capsulorrhaphy is a safe and reliable technique for the repair of the most common breast augmentation complications,” adds Dr. Chasan. “When done right and with care, breast augmentation can yield beautiful results.”

BIO: Paul Chasan, M.D. is in private practice in La Jolla, California. He is on staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital and is an Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Surgery at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Chasan is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In addition, he graduated Magna cum Laude from Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska, completed his surgical residency at the UCSD Medical Center and his plastic surgery residency at the University of Utah, Medical Center in Salt Lake City. He has been featured on E! Entertainment Television, Extra, NBC’S Today and many other media outlets.
