What Is Breast Augmentation Revision?

Breast augmentation revision refers to a surgical procedure to correct or improve the results of a previous breast augmentation surgery. This process may involve addressing complications such as implant malposition, capsular contracture, implant rupture, asymmetry, or dissatisfaction with the size or shape of the breasts. Additionally, some individuals seek revision surgery to update or replace implants due to changes in aesthetic preferences or lifestyle factors. The process typically involves careful assessment of the existing implants, tissue condition, and patient goals to develop a personalized surgical plan to achieve the desired outcome.

The Benefits of Breast Augmentation Revision

Is Breast Augmentation Revision Right for Me?

Breast augmentation revision may be suitable for individuals who are dissatisfied with the results of a previous breast augmentation procedure or have experienced complications. Ideal candidates may exhibit asymmetry, implant malposition, capsular contracture, implant rupture, or dissatisfaction with size, shape, or appearance. Implant malposition refers to the improper positioning of breast implants within the breast pocket, resulting in asymmetry, displacement, or unnatural appearance of the breasts.

Capsular contracture occurs when the scar tissue (capsule) that naturally forms around breast implants tightens and contracts, causing the breasts to feel firm, distorted, and potentially painful. Implant rupture refers to a tear or breach in the outer shell of a breast implant, causing the silicone or saline filling to leak into the surrounding tissue or implant pocket. Implant rupture can result in changes in breast shape, size, or firmness and may require surgical intervention to address.

If you're experiencing any of these concerns or seeking improvements to a previous augmentation, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Ascentist Plastic Surgery. We can assess your unique situation during this meeting and tailor a plan to your needs.

What to Expect: The Breast Augmentation Revision Procedure

During a breast augmentation revision procedure, several steps are involved to address and correct the issues from the previous augmentation. The surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort throughout the procedure. The specific steps may vary depending on the nature of the revision needed, but common techniques include the following:

  • Removing and replacing implants.
  • Adjusting implant position or size.
  • Correcting asymmetry.
  • Addressing capsular contracture.
  • Resolving any other issues encountered.

The duration of the procedure can vary based on the complexity of the revision but generally ranges from one to three hours. While discomfort and swelling are common after surgery, appropriate pain management techniques minimize any discomfort experienced during the procedure. The science behind breast augmentation revision lies in the surgeon's expertise to assess the existing anatomy, understand the patient's desired outcome, and employ appropriate surgical techniques to achieve optimal results in correcting or improving the previous augmentation.

Breast Augmentation Revision Recovery

Following breast augmentation revision surgery, patients can expect some downtime for recovery. While experiences may vary depending on the specific nature of the revision, it's common to experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the days following the procedure. Patients are typically advised to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for several weeks to allow for proper healing. It's essential to follow our postoperative care instructions, including wearing supportive garments as directed and attending follow-up appointments to monitor progress. Over time, as swelling subsides and the body heals, patients can enjoy improved breast appearance and increased satisfaction with their revision results.
