Dr Tavakoli’s Philosophy on Corrective Breast Surgery & The Internal Bra Technique
Poor outcome after breast surgery is devastating and can cause the patient severe psychological issues. Dr Tavakoli has a great deal of experience in correcting post breast augmentation complications. Around 20% of Dr Tavakoli’s practice is dedicated to performing breast revision surgery on patients who have received poor outcome or have had implants for 10 years or more are and due to have them changed.
Most of these unsatisfactory outcomes occur as a result of poor patient selection and inadequate surgical skills to deal with difficult breast conditions. Other problems can occur as a result of poor healing and scarring of the patient. Please note that the fees/costs for corrective surgery are higher than primary augmentation.
Dr Tavakoli is widely renowned in Australia for his Breast Augmentation Work. Dr Tavakoli has performed by far the most number of Breast Implants in Australia. Patients travel from Interstate, New Zealand, Asia and USA to our clinic. With over 5,000 cosmetic breast procedures, you know you are dealing with an experienced Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon you can trust. Whether it is dealing with very difficult droopy or tuberous breast shapes needing complex mastopexy procedures, or simply wanting breast enlargement Dr Tavakoli aims to provide you with surgically safe and artistically natural looking breasts.
Dr Tavakoli has a large referral base of women with poor breast augmentation outcome from other centres in Australia. These terrible complications or undesired outcomes are very rare in experienced hands but no plastic surgeon in the world including Dr Tavakoli has a zero complication rate. However as Breast Augmentation is becoming more and more popular the number of inexperienced surgeons performing this procedure has increased exponentially and hence the rise in complications and poor outcomes.
Unfortunately in great majority of revisional cases patients are psychologically affected and counselling is required to help patients through the corrective surgery. Dr Tavakoli ‘s team can organise counselling for patients undergoing corrective breast surgery.
Almost half of patients seeking breast augmentation for the first time can get a good result by any surgeon here or overseas. The other half require a specialised Plastic surgeon with a very specific knowledge of breast variations and a wide variety of technique.
Please note that “Bargain Boob jobs” are performed by junior doctors with small amount of surgical experience. Lack of experience in Breast Implant surgery almost invariably can lead to poor outcome requiring costly revisional surgery to fix. Enquire about your doctor’s level of experience before undergoing Breast Augmentation.

Revision Breast Augmentation & Re-do Implants Breast Procedures:
Internal Bra Technique Pioneered by Dr Tavakoli, FRACS
The principles of corrective surgery are complex & set out below (One step operation or two step operation):
- Recognising the initial problem using old photos, operation reports, implants used etc.
- Rectifying the implant pocket or creating a new implant pocket
- Replacing the incorrect implant size & dimension with the correct ones
- Addressing the overlying breast skin with possible Breast Lift skin tightening procedure & Nipple re-positioning
- Using Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM) or second skin (made from Human cadaver) where needed to replace tissue excessively removed
- Extensive use of permanent Barbed sutures to re-create the implant pocket
- Use of Fat graft technique to camouflage& correct breast asymmetry
Please note that Revisional Surgery can take up to 4 hours & therefore the fees/costs for corrective surgery are higher than primary augmentation.
