If you are unhappy with your results or if your breasts have changed since your surgery, a breast revision could restore them to their original beauty or achieve the lovely look you hoped for in your first surgery. It can also be used to remove breast implants and facilitate a return to your natural size. 

Are you unhappy with your breasts after surgery?

Even with a well-planned and expertly performed breast surgery, complications can occur. On rare occasions, an implant may deflate or leak, or the scar tissue around an implant may tighten and compress it (known as capsular contracture). Over time, your breasts may change due to hormone changes, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Your implants may shift, and your breasts might begin to droop or sag.

In any of these cases, a breast revision surgery could resolve the issue. Reasons for breast revision surgery include:

  • A desire to change the shape or size of your breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Irregularity of the nipples
  • Drooping or sagging breasts
  • Concerns about a rupture or leak
  • A wish to return to a natural breast size

Choosing the right surgeon

With any surgical procedure, choosing a competent and qualified surgeon is important. When it comes to breast revision surgery, this becomes even more essential. You want to make sure you are in capable hands, especially if you are considering breast revision surgery because there were complications following your original surgery. At Radiance by Roller, we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our experienced plastic surgeons. We will go over the details of your original surgery and your concerns and goals, suggesting a customized surgical plan. It is important to us that you feel comfortable and safe before we proceed.

Will I need to stay overnight?

Breast revision surgery usually takes about two hours. If it is combined with a breast lift, it may take longer. Generally performed under general anesthesia, breast revision surgery is typically an outpatient procedure. Once your anesthesia has been administered and has taken effect, your surgeon will follow the surgical plan gone over beforehand. The details of your procedure will depend on your individual circumstances and preferences. Your breast implants may be removed and replaced with new implants, possibly of a different size, type, or shape. If you want smaller breasts, your implants may simply be removed. 

Will it take me a long time to recover?

After your surgery, your breasts will be wrapped in dressings or bandages. You may have a surgical drain, and you may need to wear a compression garment. Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions to follow in order to make your recovery as rapid as possible. You should expect to experience some swelling and bruising. This is part of the natural healing process and will subside on its own. After a week or two, you should be able to return to work.

Will my results be visible immediately?

Initially, your results will be somewhat obscured by swelling. It may take a few weeks or even months for new implants to fully settle in their new position. Healing time is different from person to person. Your recovery process will likely be similar to how it was after your initial surgery. It may take a few months for your breasts to feel soft and natural again. Your results should be long-lasting. However, breast implants do need to be replaced after a certain number of years.
