Why is Breast Revision Performed?

Sadly, there are many women who are unhappy with the results of an original breast augmentation surgery. In other cases, implants have shifted or there has been a change in the elasticity of skin causing the breast tissue to droop. No matter the reason that you are seeking breast revision surgery, Dr. Pryor is an accomplished, board-certified plastic surgeon who can perform your revision procedure, and has performed many breast revisions with stunning results.

What are the Benefits of Breast Revision?

Breast revision surgery may be performed to correct deficiencies caused by previous breast augmentation, reduction, lift, or reconstruction procedures including:

  • Reposition breast implants
  • Improve upon the results from previous breast augmentation
  • Remove rippling implants
  • Repair capsular contracture
  • Change the size of breast implants
  • Replace leaking implants
  • Create more desirable contours

What Can I Expect During Breast Revision?

Breast revision surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Pryor will use your existing incision locations from your previous procedure if possible, to minimize scarring following breast revision. Your old implants will be removed, and the surrounding tissue examined for scars or irregularities. Then a new implant will be inserted if desired, and any remaining procedures completed such as a breast lift or skin tightening. Breast revision surgery typically takes 60 to 90 minutes, or longer in cases with more serious defects.

What is the Recovery Like Following Breast Revision?

You will experience swelling and bruising in your breasts and surrounding tissue following breast revision surgery. Dr. Pryor will provide you with pain medication in order to allow you to recover in comfort. You will be wearing a compression garment following breast revision surgery to minimize swelling and allow your breasts to settle as they should. You should refrain from strenuous activity and any motion that requires you to lift your arms over your head for at least two weeks following your procedure. Swelling will continue to go down from your breasts in the weeks and months following breast revision surgery, with final results visible approximately three months following the procedure.
