Breast Revision

Over time, breast surgery may also require a touch-up where existing implants are replaced with new ones.

What is it?

Breast revision is a surgical operation performed to address issues or unhappiness following a breast augmentation. Implant replacement, capsular contracture correction, and ruptured implants are common causes of breast revision. Breast revision surgery may also be performed for other reasons, such as unhappiness with the way the breasts look, poor healing, scarring, or stretched breasts brought on by pregnancy or weight fluctuations.

Benefits

Some of the exciting benefits to look forward to after a breast revision include the following:

  • A well-proportioned body
  • Mental relief
  • Physical fulfillment
  • Aesthetic outcomes
  • Greater self-esteem

 

Additionally, breast revision surgery can repair ruptured implants, lessen the chance of capsular contracture, and relieve back pain.

How the Procedure Works

  • Before & Preparation

It’s important to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced surgeons in order to get ready for your breast revision surgery. On the day of surgery, avoid applying body lotion, antiperspirant, makeup, hairspray, or powder, and instead, take a shower and wash with simple soap and water. Stock up on your favorite healthy snacks and make some freezer-friendly dishes before having breast augmentation surgery. Your body will be better equipped to concentrate its energies on mending if you consume a diet that is high in protein, low in fat, and contains little to no dairy.
If you smoke, you should give it up a few weeks before to the procedure. Make sure you schedule adequate time off of work and that you have transportation to and from your surgery. Finally, the evening before your procedure, wash your hair, then wash your body with antibacterial soap. Then, fast for the final eight hours before your procedure.

  • During the Procedure

Typically, general anesthesia or local anesthetic with sedation is used during breast implant revision surgery. The complexity of the revision and the surgeon’s preferences determine the type of anesthetic employed. The surgeon will remove the old implants and replace them with new ones during the operation. The pocket for the breast implant may also be reshaped, the implant may be moved, or the implant’s size, shape, or type may be altered. To enhance the breasts’ look, the surgeon may also do a concomitant breast lift or reduction.

  • Aftercare & Recovery

It’s crucial to adhere to your doctor’s aftercare instructions following breast revision surgery. This entails refraining from heavy lifting or rigorous activity for a number of weeks, wearing a supportive surgical bra, and avoiding intense activity for at least 3 weeks. For at least two weeks following surgery, you should abstain from alcohol, nicotine use, and smoking. You should also follow your doctor’s shower and bathing instructions and keep the surgery area dry and clean. The treated region should also not be exposed to the sun too much, and you should always apply sunscreen outside.

Treatment Areas

Any part of the breast, including the nipples, areolas, and chest, can undergo breast revision surgery. The breast implant pocket, the breast implant, and the surrounding breast tissue are the three most often treated areas in breast revision surgery. The surgeon may also perform a contemporaneous breast lift or reduction to enhance the appearance of the breasts overall, according to the patient’s particular demands.

Am I a good Candidate?

An individual who does not smoke and is in generally good health is a good candidate for breast revision surgery. Asymmetry, drooping breasts (ptosis), rupture of the implants, double bubble, rippling, or bottoming out are all problems that candidates may be having in addition to being dissatisfied with the size, shape, or placement of their breast implants. In addition, breast revision surgery may be done to change the implants’ composition from saline to silicone. The surgeon will do a comprehensive examination during the consultation and go over your unique goals and expected results.

If you feel that your implant needs a replacement or your breast surgery needs a re-examination, head on over to our clinic or book an appointment with us for a consultation.

  • Pain, swelling, bruising, scarring, and changes in nipple and breast sensation.
