Revisionary breast surgeries are challenging, and advanced techniques must often be utilized in the correction of the underlying anatomical deformities. In this Featured Operative Technique, the authors describe their method, which includes a combination of revisionary surgery techniques with site change and acellular dermal matrices. This use of acellular dermal matrices has four indications based on the underlying clinical presentation: (1) as a lower pole implant interface (usually for revision mastopexy), (2) as a capsular contracture treatment (technically similar to lower pole interface), (3) as a tissue thickener (superomedial or inferolateral implant interface), or (4) as an implant stabilizer (malposition correction).
