Breast Surgery: The Second Time Around
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.”
