Breast Revision Surgery in New Orleans

Breast revision surgery, or breast implant revision surgery, is a cosmetic procedure to correct or improve the appearance of previously augmented breasts. This surgery may be necessary for various reasons, such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, implant malposition, or dissatisfaction with the appearance of augmented breasts.
