Breast Implant Revision Surgery: What To Expect

breast implant revision surgeryFollowing an initial breast augmentation, many women feel happy with their results. The National Institutes of Health found that 80 percent of patients reported high satisfaction with their breasts, and 86 percent were satisfied with the procedure’s outcomes.

However, there are many reasons a person may choose to undergo a breast implant revision surgery, such as:

  • A woman’s body experiences many changes during pregnancy, which may affect the appearance of breast implants.
  • The patient liked the size of their implants at the time of the procedure, but now many want to increase or decrease the size.
  • Implants aren’t meant to last forever. If the implant has started leaking, it must be removed or replaced.
  • The implant is causing other complications.

No matter the reason, breast implant revision is not the same as breast augmentation. You can prepare and ensure a speedy recovery by learning more about the procedure.

What Is the Procedure for Breast Implant Revision?

The procedure will vary slightly depending on your goals. For example, some patients may be looking to replace their implant while others want to remove it completely. Therefore, the procedure will look slightly different for each person.

That said, it’s important to ensure you work with an experienced and knowledgeable surgeon since a breast implant revision requires skill and precision. The team at Cosmetic Surgical Group is highly qualified and includes board-certified physicians. By scheduling a consultation, they can discuss your goals and then walk you through how they will conduct the procedure for your situation.

What To Expect From Recovery?

Recovery from your breast implant revision procedure may vary from person to person. If you follow all aftercare instructions and are gentle with your body–meaning no strenuous activity–your recovery may be shorter than with your initial surgery. However, this may vary depending on the details of your procedure.

You will likely feel swollen and sore for several days. It may be beneficial to ask a friend or family member to stay with you or check in on you frequently for the first few days. You should be able to return to your daily routine in two weeks and high-intensity exercise around three weeks.

Be sure to care for the surgical site, take any prescribed medications, and continue to follow up with your surgeon.
