Before Your Breast Implant Revision

Breast implant revision is one of the more technically difficult breast enhancement surgeries, because it involves more complex issues and considerations than an initial breast augmentation. That’s why your pre-operative consultation is more important than ever when it comes to updating your breast implants.

During your initial consultation, you can discuss your reasons for pursuing breast implant revision with Dr. Daniel and his staff, as well as your ideal breast appearance and any concerns you may have. If you’re unsure of the final results you’d like to see after breast implant revision, Dr. Daniel can recommend an approach suited to your needs and preferences.

Your Breast Implant Revision Procedure

Breast implant revision gives women a second chance at achieving their ideal breast augmentation results. While some patients undergo breast implant revision to resolve implant malfunction or malposition, most simply choose to update their implants with a new size or type.

Some of the most common reasons to undergo breast implant revision include:

  • Increasing or decreasing cup size

  • Switching from saline to silicone or vice versa

  • Implant leakage

  • Capsular contracture (scar tissue that causes the implant to feel hard)

  • Breast implants have shifted in position

  • Breast tissue has changed in shape or volume

After the patient has been anesthetized, Dr. Daniel uses strategic incision placement to minimize the appearance of scars. There are a variety of possible techniques involved in breast revision surgery, depending on the type of revisions that are required. Breast implant revision can also be combined with a breast lift to bring a higher, more youthful position to the bust line or to further assist in correcting implant malposition.

Healing Process for Your Breast Implant Revision

Patients are typically able to walk around unaided on the day of surgery, and most can return to non-strenuous work within 7 to 10 days. Dressings are removed after a few days, but patients often need to wear a special post-surgical bra for a few weeks in order to prevent undue strain on the tissue. You should avoid getting the incision site wet, and take care to follow all of Dr. Daniel’s post-operative instructions. Initial bruising, swelling and discomfort will gradually fade over the following several weeks.

After your breast implant revision, you should notice an immediate change in the way your augmented breasts look and feel, including an improvement in any issues you previously experienced. Dr. Daniel’s refined breast implant revision techniques are designed to create results that are naturally beautiful and long-lasting, allowing you to enjoy your breast augmentation for many more years to come.
