Who Can Get Breast Revision Surgery?Women who have undergone breast augmentation with breast implants, and who are unhappy with their results, may require revision surgery. Some examples of unsatisfactory results include asymmetry or an unnatural-looking breast; issues due to complications like capsular contracture, implant rupture, or implant deflation; and issues due to bodily changes like pregnancy/childbirth, weight gain/loss, or breastfeeding. Some women may have chosen to undergo breast augmentation in the past and would like their implants removed. Other women may need to replace or update their existing implants. All of these procedures fall into the category of breast revision surgery. Dr. Sadeghi will talk with you about your original surgery and the results you are looking for in a revision. Then, he’ll recommend an approach to bring you as close as possible to your desired results.
The Breast Revision ProcedureAfter consulting with you to find out exactly what happened in your previous procedure and how you would like your final results to look, Dr. Sadeghi will approach your surgery in one of several ways. To remove breast implants, Dr. Sadeghi will make an incision either around the areola or underneath the breast. Any scar tissue that has developed around the implant will be removed along with it, and a drainage tube will be inserted to collect fluids. After removal, the chest is tightly wrapped to encourage the implant pocket to heal. Often the best way to restore the natural appearance of the breast is to combine fat grafting to the breasts at the time of the removal of the implants. Replacement implants can be inserted either during the previous implant removal procedure or at a later date. In some cases, Dr. Sadeghi may use a surgical mesh, such as Seri®, to support the breasts as they heal. Seri® is made of purified silk and reinforces breast tissues while reducing the risk of capsular contracture. Over a one-to-two-year period, Seri® mesh is slowly reabsorbed into the body leaving behind tissue that is two times as strong as the original mesh.
Risks of Breast RevisionAlong with general surgical risks, such as bleeding, infection, and scarring, women who undergo breast revision surgery, may run the risk of complications including blood accumulation, changes in breast sensation or nipple sensation, implant deflation, and capsular contracture. Most patients who decide to undergo breast revision are very happy with their results. See our patient gallery or read testimonials.
Recovering From Your Breast RevisionIn general, recovering from breast revision surgery will take longer than the recovery from your original breast surgery. You should plan to be away from work for at least a week to 10 days, and avoid physical activity. You’ll see Dr. Sadeghi for follow-up appointments to ensure that your healing is progressing as planned.
