Revision Breast Surgery
Revision breast surgery describes a variety of operations designed to improve breast appearance after prior breast surgery for aesthetic reasons, cancer, burns, and other causes, as well as implant malposition, rupture.
Will I look better after breast revision?
The goal of breast revision may be improvement in appearance or relief of symptoms related to previous breast surgery. Potential areas for improvement may include scarring, implant position or deflation, asymmetry, contour irregularities. Symptoms may include discomfort, tightness, numbness or other abnormal sensations. Individualized treatments will depend on your concerns and will be discussed in detail during your free consultation.
What are the surgical techniques used for breast revision?
The surgical process of a breast revision depends on what concerns need to be addressed. Depending on the extent of the solution that’s necessary to fix your concerns, the procedure may be performed under general anesthesia (going to sleep) or local anesthesia (numbing medication while awake).
I would like another procedure performed at the same time. Is this possible with breast revision?
Certainly! A breast revision can be an opportunity to address other concerns. Certain patients will benefit from tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift. Liposuction is another frequently combined procedure. Dr. McDaniel is happy to discuss any other areas that you would like to be improved at your free consultation.
How challenging is recovery after breast revision?
Breast revision is usually performed in our AAAASF-certified private operating room with any other combined procedures. Dr. McDaniel will see you the following day to ensure proper early healing and review postoperative restrictions. You will also be seen at intervals during the following year to check the progress of swelling, bruising, and scarring. The location and length of scars will depend on the type of operation required to correct your concerns. Please view our breast augmentation and breast lift pages for additional information.
The specific length and intensity of recovery will depend on the type of operation required to correct your concerns. Activity restrictions may be limited to incision care, or may involve more extensive restrictions, with three weeks of avoidance of cardiovascular exercise in six weeks of minimizing arm and upper body activity. Dr. McDaniel will discuss your specific plan at your free consultation.
What do you charge for breast revision?
