Breast revision surgery can be performed to correct an array of breast issues. If you're unhappy with the results of previous breast surgery, revision surgery may be the solution for you. At The Ariel Center, our highly experienced board-certified plastic surgeons carry out complex corrective procedures to achieve the desired breast appearance. During your initial consultation, your goals for revision surgery will be discussed. You will then receive a customized treatment plan to resolve any aesthetic or medical issues that may occur after undergoing a breast augmentation.

Breast revision surgery, what is it? 

Breast revision surgery, also known as corrective breast surgery, is a type of procedure performed to improve or correct the results of previous breast surgery. It can be used to address a wide variety of concerns, including:

  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Breasts that have changed shape or size over time
  • Breasts that have developed scar tissue
  • Breasts that have been affected by capsular contracture
  • Exchanging implants for a different size or type
  • Rippling 
  • Bottoming out (when the implant droops)
  • Implant rupture
  • Symmastia (when the implants merge in the middle of the chest)
  • To replace older breast implants
  • To restore natural breast size

Who can benefit from breast revision surgery?

Benefits of breast revision surgery can include:

  • Improved breast symmetry
  • Correction of capsular contracture (when a scar forms a capsule around the implant)
  • Restored breast volume
  • Improved self-esteem and self-confidence 

The best candidate for breast revision surgery is in good overall health, has realistic expectations, and has cosmetic concerns about their breasts that cannot be resolved with non-surgical treatments.

What types of breast revision surgeries are there?

Whether the original implants have become displaced, have developed an unfavorable shape, or have simply begun to show their age, breast revision surgery can help patients achieve a more aesthetically pleasing bust. There are many different types of breast revision surgery, and the best option for each patient will depend on her specific concerns. Some of the most common breast revision procedures include:

  • Capsulectomy: removal of the scar tissue that has formed around the implant
  • Explantation: removal of the implant itself
  • Augmentation mastopexy: combination breast augmentation and lift surgery
  • Breast lift: procedure to correct drooping or sagging breasts

The recovery process following breast revision surgery will vary depending on the specific procedure that was performed. In general, however, patients can expect some amount of discomfort and a need for assistance with some daily activities for the first few days following surgery. Most patients can return to work and other normal activities within a week or two. More strenuous activity, such as exercise, may need to be restricted for several weeks. Your surgeon will provide you with specific instructions on what you can and cannot do following surgery. Visible bruising and swelling should resolve fully within 2 to 3 weeks of the procedure.
