Women usually undergo breast augmentation expecting to achieve desired results, without any complications. Most often, this is the case.

What Is Breast Revision Surgery?

Breast revision surgery is a plastic surgery procedure designed to correct unsatisfactory outcomes or complications from an initial breast augmentation.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Revision Surgery?

There are a number of reasons that a woman may seek breast revision surgery. To start, some patients experience capsular contracture, in which the capsule of scar tissue surrounding the implant becomes hard and contracts around the implant.

Additionally, implants can shift over time, lose volume, become damaged due to an accident or injury, or cause breast tissue to wrinkle. All of these issues may necessitate a revision.

Patients may also consider this procedure to exchange implant size or composition or remove implants completely.

Another possible explanation is that a woman may have been unhappy with results from her initial augmentation and would like to achieve a different surgical outcome.

How Is a Breast Revision Performed?

Breast revision surgery is an outpatient procedure that is typically performed under general anesthesia.

Depending on the patient’s concerns and goals, the process may include: Removing implants, replacing implants, repositioning implants, reconstructing implant pocket, or repositioning the nipple-areolar complex.

What Can Patients Expect from Recovery?

The recovery from breast revision surgery tends to be very similar to that of an initial augmentation.

Patients will experience the most discomfort in the first few days, with swelling, numbness, and tenderness. Pain medication can be helpful in alleviating these side effects.

It’s also important to avoid bending, lifting, and strenuous activity for several weeks or until you receive clearance.

Most women can return to work within five days of having breast revision surgery.
