A Fresh Start for Your Ideal Breasts

Even with the most skilled surgeons, surgical procedures, including cosmetic ones like breast augmentation, don't always result in the perfect outcome. The field of secondary breast revision is expanding within cosmetic breast surgery, addressing cases where initial results deteriorate over time or where the initial outcome was unsatisfactory from the start.

If you're considering a breast revision in Denver, selecting the right surgeon is paramount. This complex procedure requires the skill of a seasoned cosmetic breast surgeon, such as Denver's board-certified plastic surgeon Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO.

Considering Breast Revision in Denver?

Several common motivations for seeking a secondary breast revision are:

Adjusting the Position of Breast Implants

Typically, breast implants will settle into their final positions once healing is complete. However, some patients experience persistent asymmetry. Dr. Buford can modify the scar capsule around the implant for a more natural, lower placement.

Should the breast fold appear too high or low, Dr. Buford can also recalibrate the fold itself, influencing the implant's position. In cases of implants meeting in the center ("symmastia" or "breadloafing"), the medial fold may be corrected.

"I have known Dr. Buford for many years now. I had an extreme case that left me with severe burns and gaping open wounds. Dr. Buford and his team were willing to take on something that turned out to be a very very long process for me and painful as well until I found him! I was told by the doctor before him to do my own wound care until I went to ER . Since then he and his team have done nothing but worked with me day in and day out to do the best that they can to get me the best results. I am so thankful for everyone and all of their compassion and kindness. His nurse Shazia by far has also gone above and beyond. She has been there by my side from day one and always responded to phone calls and any questions or concerns that I ever had.

Once again I had a severe case but Buford came in and he fixed and literally saved me! So thankful for this wonderful team of people can't express the gratitude that I have. Thank you Gregory A. Buford, MD, FACS, PCEO!"

Correcting Firm, Misshapen Breasts

Sometimes, individuals who have undergone breast augmentation encounter "capsular contracture," a situation where the tissue capsule around the implant tightens and compresses the implant. Recent advancements in surgical methods and implant design have made this issue increasingly rare.

However, a few women may still face capsular contracture, leading to breasts that feel firm, appear distorted, and cause discomfort. The solution often involves either removing or loosening the capsule and replacing the implant, resulting in a softer, more natural appearance with quick recovery and significant improvement.

Patients with older implants might also deal with issues like the implant shell breaking down. Fortunately, fixing this problem is relatively simple and can lead to a very natural-looking outcome.

Adjusting Breast Implant Size

For others, the concern might be the size of the implants. Perhaps the size that once seemed perfect no longer suits your lifestyle or how your body has changed over time. Whether you're looking to go larger or smaller, or you're considering a breast lift to enhance the shape and contour of your breasts, Dr. Buford is ready to assist.
