Breast Revision Surgery Miami

The process of a breast revision begins with your surgeon at CG Cosmetic Surgery working with you in your complimentary consultation to determine why you were unhappy with the results of your prior breast augmentation procedure. From there, your surgeon will work with you to develop a strategy for the breast revision.

As with breast augmentation, prior to the surgery you will come to an agreement with your CG Cosmetic Surgery Surgeon about a desired cup size and the type of incision that will be used in the procedure. Different incisions are used, although typically steps will be undertaken to reduce the appearance of scarring along the breasts, often by making incisions in the same locations as the prior breast augmentation surgery. From there, the overall procedure will differ depending on the reason for the breast revision. In some instances, the surgeon will need to change the size of the internal pocket of the breast tissue to make room for the new breast implant. In some instances, such as rippling of the tissue in which you are able to feel the implants below the breast tissue, it may be necessary to use a different type of implant in order to correct the issue.

Breast revision may be combined with other procedures such as a breast lift in situations where the implants have led to sagging of the breast tissue. Additional incisions or sutures may be required if during the breast revision procedure the surgeon will need to lift the nipple and areola into a new position. In instances where smaller implants are being inserted, it may also be necessary to remove some of the breast tissue, especially if the breast tissue has stretched due to the insertion of larger implants.

Our Miami plastic surgeons consult with patients, and work together to correct the aesthetic and medical complications they might be experiencing from a previous procedure that was performed elsewhere. The result is a look that is natural, anatomically correct, and symmetrical.

REASONS FOR BREAST REVISION SURGERY

Whether is capsular contracture, high-riding implants, ruptured implants or changing the size of breast implants, breast revision surgery is available at CG Cosmetic.


Get Started

Numerous women have body changes because of weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy, aging, or sickness. These body changes can modify the way your breasts look regardless of whether your implants themselves have any issues or not. For instance, if a woman loses a lot of weight after experiencing breast augmentation surgery, the implants can look too big or have an appearance that is not 100% natural. Breast revision surgery can modify the size of the implant to make the necessary changes for the perfect look.

Breast revision surgery can modify the size of the implant to make the necessary changes for the perfect look.

Usually, a correction is needed if you are experiencing the following:

  • One or both of your implants became encapsulated.
  • Desired size changes.
  • Noticeable loss of volume.
  • You had implants removed.
  • If you would like to change your saline or silicone implants due to sagging, tissue wrinkles or trauma.

Recovery after breast revision will vary depending on the type of procedure that a woman undergoes. In most instances, women will experience a recovery time and process similar to that of their initial breast augmentation, being able to return to work after two weeks. However, recovery time may be shorter in the case of a simple replacement, or longer in cases where the pocket of the breast implant will need to be surgically altered in order to fit the new implant. Your surgeon at CG Cosmetic Surgery will discuss recovery times with you and give you a realistic outlook on how much recovery time will be needed with the type of breast revision that you will be undergoing. As with breast augmentation procedures, patients will wear a surgical bra after their procedure for a set period of time. This bra will help with any swelling that may occur. It may take a certain amount of time for swelling to go away completely, and patients may not see the full results of their breast revision for several months to a year after their breast revision has been completed.

Breast revision carries the same risks as all cosmetic surgery procedures performed under general anesthesia, such as excessive bleeding, infection and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Proper aftercare on the completion of the breast revision will help to prevent these issues. Breast revision can increase the amount of scar tissue on the breast, even if the surgeon is able to make new incisions along old incision lines. Be aware of this possibility prior to undergoing breast revision.

It is also important to remember that even with breast revision, you might not be fully satisfied with your results, especially if the breast revision is being done to correct significant issues resulting from a prior breast augmentation. Additional procedures such as a breast lift and liposuction or further breast revision procedures may be necessary in some cases to achieve better results.

Women who would like to increase or decrease the size of their current breast implants can do so, sometimes patients regret the size of the implants they have, therefore with a breast revision they can get more volume or a more dramatic look by replacing the current implant with a larger size.

The exact cost of breast revision will vary depending on the type of revision that is needed. As an elective procedure, it is unlikely that insurance will cover the cost, except for in some cases such as a ruptured breast implant. Fees typically begin at about $3000. For more information regarding pricing, you can schedule a complimentary consultation with CG Cosmetic Surgery to gain a better understanding of how much the breast revision procedure will cost.

If you are experiencing complications from a prior breast augmentation surgery, or simply find that you are unhappy with the results of a previous procedure, the cost of breast revision should not hold you back from achieving the body that you want. CG Cosmetic partners with several third partner companies including Care Credit, and United Medical Credit in order to provide their patients with easy payment options for their breast revision surgery. You will have numerous options at your disposal for the terms of the loans needed for your procedure.

One of the most common reasons women seek to have breast revision surgery, this can occur anytime after surgery. Breast implants that feel hard and appear distorted result from a patient's body forming a capsule that lines the implant. In cases where the capsule tightens, it affects the placement and appearance of the implant. Read more about capsular contracture here.

In some instances, the implants were placed too high in the breasts by the prior surgical team. Your CG Cosmetic Surgery Surgeon can correct this issue by removing the original implants and placing them in a more appropriate position within the body. Women who feel that their breasts have an unusual shape or that their breasts sit too high on the chest after breast augmentation can have breast revision to correct the issue.

Breast implants can rupture for various reasons, including trauma to the breast, injury from surgical instruments, normal wear and tear, or simply from wearing out over time. Women may notice that their implants have ruptured because of pain in the breast or changes in the shape or contouring of her breast. Many women also notice rupture during routine MRIs or mammograms. It is important to repair a ruptured breast implant as quickly as possible. Ruptures can occur at any time after surgery, however are generally more likely the longer an implant has been in use. Ruptured implants should be replaced as soon as possible. The procedure is similar to a breast augmentation.
