Breast implant revision

You should obtain all of the information including operative reports and pictures from prior surgeons. Find a board certified plastic surgeon with an excellent reputation and pay for his or her exam and opinion. Good Luck!

Revisions to breasts have limitations

Unfortunately, there is a limit to what you can achieve after alrady undergoing multplie revisions.  At some point you are basically just dealing with scar tissue.  I'd get some in person opinions but press them to give you honest and realistic expectations because they need to be limited if you are ever going to achieve happiness.

Thank you for the question. Based on the information you provided and the photos, it is difficult to determine your problem. You need to have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. They will be able to do a history and physicial. Good luck

Will a Revision Correct My Asymmetry, Rippling And Tissue Loss From Prior Scar Tissue Removal?

The shorthand/jargon makes it difficult for me to understand the course of events. The one potentially useful view doesn't show enough of the left breast for proper evaluation. 

At any rate, even with better photos and explanation, this is complex enough that it is unlikely that you will get a useful recommendation for Realself consultants. An in person examination is needed to determine a recommended course of  treatment. 

The more revisions you have had, the less likely you are to get an excellent and symmetric outcome, and realistic expectation by surgeon and patient are mandatory when discussing the pros and cons.

All the best.
