- Utilize extended surgical drapes to ensure sterility throughout your case
- Utilize nipple-areola shields in order to avoid contamination of your implants from endogenous bacteria that normally live within the breast glands
- Use of anatomic landmarks for pectoralis muscle release in order to ensure the symmetric release of muscles and subsequent symmetry of proposed breast implants pocket position
- Use of non-powdered gloves as well as irrigation of surgeon’s gloves with antibiotics solution to avoid all irritants that could cause capsular contracture
- Use of antibiotic solution to irrigate the surgical breast pocket and breast implants in addition to the surgeon’s gloves to minimize the risk of infection
- Use of minimal touch technique when handling breast implant replacements prior to implantation.
- Use of sterile breast implant sizes prior to committing you to your final replacement implants.
- Maintaining an array of breast implant sizes and shapes on consignment at our surgery center so that adjustments in size can be considered during your operation should unexpected intraoperative findings be made.
- Placement of our specialized, proprietary Mermaid breast garment, i.e. breast band, which ensures maintenance of breast implant position and avoids implant malposition.
Finally, Orange County Breast Augmentation Revision Natrelle™ focuses on providing you a comfortable immediate postoperative period, speedy recovery, and long-lasting results by:

It is not uncommon for Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery to require a simultaneous breast lift during your breast augmentation revision. By employing a simultaneous breast lift procedure, it is possible to correct breast mound shape asymmetry, to raise the position of the breast mound, to improve medial cleavage, and to ensure an optimum nipple-areola position.
Breast augmentation cost is affected by multiple factors including implant style selection, the severity of breast deformity, the need for breast lift, and whether insurance coverage can be secured for your surgery.
We encourage you to take advantage of our complimentary consultation so that you can be provided an accurate estimate for your breast augmentation revision surgery.
