Breast revision surgery is a procedure or combination of procedures performed to improve or correct an unsatisfactory outcome of a previous surgery. This may be due to age-related changes in the body affecting surgical results, having your body respond in an unexpected way during the healing process or simply wanting a different look.
Breast revision surgery is often more complicated and requires a more advanced skill set than an initial breast augmentation or other enhancement procedure. Your surgeon will be dealing with factors such as scar tissue, changes in the skin and breast following an earlier surgery, and other challenges. Meticulous attention to detail and advanced techniques are critical in surgical revision procedures. For this reason, it is very important for women to find a breast revision specialist for their surgery.
If you have had a previous breast enhancement procedure and are unhappy with the results, you may be a candidate for breast revision. The ideal candidates should be in good health both physically and mentally and maintain realistic expectations about the outcome of their procedure.
Our Beverly Hills breast revision surgery can resolve a number of issues related to a former surgery, including problems with implant placement or uneven breasts (asymmetry), improving the appearance of scars, removing excess scar tissue around the implants (capsular contracture), and address implant replacement, removal or adjustment. The goal of breast revision surgery is to give you beautiful, natural looking results, regardless of your reasons for needing revision surgery in the first place.*
- Health insurance companies cover most breast revision surgeries particularly if they are associated with:
- Firm breast implants or capsular contracture
- Uneven breasts
- Ruptured breast implants
- Breast deformities after surgery
- Poor scars
- Recurrent breast enlargement after breast reduction
- Wound healing issues
We encourage you to contact our office for verification of your insurance coverage of your revision procedure. We also offer a number of financing options for patients whose procedure is not covered by insurance.
Every woman’s needs are different and there is not a single approach toward breast revision surgery. You can trust that our Beverly Hills breast surgeons are focused on delivering the best results for each of our patients based on their personal appearance goals and concerns. It is very common for breast revision surgery to include more than one procedure. For example, breast reduction revision could include a breast lift to reshape and reposition the natural breast tissue for the best outcome. Revision of firm breasts or capsular contracture after breast augmentation includes removing the scar tissue around the implants and possibly replacing the breast implants based on your personal preference. Regardless of the specifics of your surgery, our surgeons will make every effort to use existing scars for their incisions to minimize future scarring and ensure beautiful final results.*
Many of our patients experience some level of soreness and swelling immediately after their procedure. Typically, the first few days are uncomfortable, although the level of discomfort largely varies according to the procedures done and whether augmentation was a part of your surgery. However, the majority of our patients find that they are well-enough recovered after a week or two to resume their regular work schedule.*
Our surgeons are committed to delivering flattering, natural looking results after your revision surgery. Your breasts should look more symmetrical, have less visible scarring after they heal and have a shapelier appearance than before your revision surgery.* It is important to keep in mind that a positive improvement is held as the goal of revision surgery rather than the impossible idea of perfection.
Our Beverly Hills breast revision surgery is a permanent procedure. However, although you can expect the results to be long lasting, the surgery itself does not stop the aging process. Your breasts will continue responding to age and gravity over time, just like the rest of your body. A successful breast revision procedure will keep your figure looking younger for longer than without surgery.*
