Breast Revision Miami

Miami Breast Revision Surgery by Dr. Tachmes

Dr. Leonard Tachmes is a south Florida expert plastic surgeon on revision breast surgery. His significant years of experience coupled with his specialized fellowship training in breast reconstruction at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan, has prepared him to take on and treat these difficult cases.

Patients with breast implant related problems after surgery present with unique challenges that need to be evaluated individually. Dr. Tachmes takes the time to exam each patient in detail, then discusses the breast reconstruction plan with the patient in order to create realistic goals and objectives from the revisional breast surgery procedure.

Problems that arise from breast implant procedures include the following:

Capsular contracture deformities result from excessive scar tissue formation around the implant (the capsule) producing pain, firmness, hardness and implant malposition.

-Implant position deformities can result from poor surgical technique, capsular contracture and breast lift (mastopexy) related issues.  These can include “bottoming out” of the implant below the normal inframammary fold,  breast shape asymmetries, medial displacement of the implants resulting in synmastia or loss of normal cleavage dimensions with the implants touching each other in the midline, and finally lateral displacement of the implants leaving the implants to far to the lateral sides of the chest.

-Deflated saline or leaking silicone implants can produce significant breast shape asymmetries, as well as capsular contractures resulting from the silicone leakage.

Determining the proper diagnosis is crucial in producing successful surgical outcomes in all of these difficult cases.  It is highly recommended to choose a board certified senior plastic surgeon with significant experience in treating these complex breast revision problems in Miami. Dr. Tachmes treats patients from around the world who travel to Miami Beach for their procedures.

Patients begin their revision breast surgery process by submitting photos of their breasts in front and side views by clicking on the Evaluate Me link, which sends these images directly to Dr. Tachmes.  He will review them and then make arrangements to speak directly on the phone with each patient.
