What Is Breast Revision?

Breast revision is a surgical procedure designed to address complications or issues that may arise after a previous breast augmentation surgery. These complications can be related to the implants or changes in breast tissue due to natural factors like childbirth or breastfeeding. At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, Dr. Joseph M. Perlman offers breast revision surgery to correct these concerns and provide you with peace of mind regarding your breast health.

During breast revision surgery, old implants can be replaced, or specific problems can be resolved without the need for new implants. Dr. Perlman and his skilled team are dedicated to achieving the desired results while prioritizing your health and well-being. If you are in Houston, including Spring and The Woodlands, we welcome you to schedule a consultation to explore the benefits of breast revision and discuss your unique needs and goals.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Revision?

If you are experiencing any of the following issues after a previous breast augmentation, you may be a suitable candidate for breast revision:

1. Indication of shell leak in a silicone implant
2. Implant deflation (loss of saline volume)
3. Capsular contracture (the tightening of scar tissue around the implant)
4. To correct symmastia
5. Double-bubble deformity
6. A shift in implant position
7. Increase or decrease implant size
8. Change in breast tissue shape or volume due to weight loss, weight gain, or skin stretching

If you are facing any of these concerns, Dr. Joseph M. Perlman and his compassionate team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre are ready to assist you. We invite patients from Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, and the surrounding areas to schedule a consultation to explore the possibilities of breast revision and find the best solution for your individual needs.

What Is the Process for Breast Revision?

During the initial consultation for breast revision, you will have an in-depth discussion with Dr. Perlman about the specific issues you are experiencing and your desired outcomes from the surgery. He will carefully explain the entire process, including pre- and post-operation instructions, to ensure you are well-informed and comfortable with the procedure.

Similar to a breast enhancement procedure, medications and general anesthesia will be administered during the surgery to ensure your comfort. Dr. Perlman will strategically make incisions to minimize the appearance of scars.

The precise techniques employed during a breast revision procedure will vary based on the corrections needed and your desired goals. In cases where implants need to be removed, they will be carefully drained and then extracted, along with any scar tissue. For silicone implants, muscle and tissue may also be removed. If addressing capsular contracture, Dr. Perlman can correct the issue by either cutting open the capsule or completely removing it. When replacing implants, new ones are often placed immediately after the removal of the old ones.

Dr. Perlman and his experienced team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre are committed to providing personalized care and achieving optimal results for breast revision patients. If you are in Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, or nearby areas, we welcome you to schedule a consultation to explore the possibilities of breast revision and address any concerns you may have.

What Does Recovery Entail After Breast Revision

The duration of your recovery after a breast revision procedure depends on the specific details of the surgery. In most cases, breast revision is performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing you to return home the same day. Compared to the initial breast augmentation, breast revision is typically less invasive, resulting in a quicker recovery period.

It is important to avoid strenuous physical activities for at least two weeks following the surgery. However, many patients can resume their normal work schedule within 7 to 10 days after the procedure.

Dr. Perlman will provide personalized guidance on your unique healing process before and after the surgery, and his attentive staff will offer continuous support throughout your recovery journey. Whether you reside in Spring, The Woodlands, or any other part of the Houston area, rest assured that we will be with you every step of the way during your breast revision process, ensuring a smooth and successful outcome.

Can I See Breast Revision Before and After Photos?

At the Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, we understand that seeing before and after photos of similar breast revision surgeries can be reassuring and help ease a patient’s mind about the procedure. Dr. Perlman takes pride in sharing a comprehensive collection of breast revision before and after pictures during your consultation. These images will provide you with a clear understanding of the remarkable results that can be achieved through this process. By viewing these photos, you can gain confidence in your decision and have a better idea of the potential outcome of your breast revision surgery.

How Much Does a Breast Revision Cost?

As breast revision procedures can differ significantly from one case to another, we recommend reaching out to Dr. Perlman and his staff directly to discuss your individual needs and the associated costs. At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, we understand the importance of transparency and will provide you with a personalized cost estimate based on your unique situation.

Customized Solutions

Breast implant revision surgery is a highly individualized procedure that requires careful consideration and personalized planning to meet the patient’s specific goals and desires. It is crucial to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience and expertise in various breast surgeries. A skilled surgeon will take the time to listen to the patient’s concerns, understand their objectives, and create a customized surgical plan that addresses all relevant issues effectively. By entrusting your breast implant revision to a qualified and compassionate plastic surgeon, you can achieve the best possible outcomes and ensure your safety and satisfaction with the procedure.

10-Year Rule

Over time, breast implants can undergo changes in shape or size, and the surrounding breast tissue may also change, leading to a less desirable appearance or feel compared to the initial results. Additionally, while many breast implants come with a lifetime warranty on the device itself, the costs of surgery to replace the implants after ten years are typically not covered. As a result, many women choose to replace or update their breast implants around the 10-year mark to maintain their desired aesthetic and ensure optimal results. Regular evaluation and consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon can help women make informed decisions about breast implant revision and achieve long-lasting satisfaction with their appearance.

Breast Revision Benefits

Relief from Previous Implant Complications

Breast augmentation is a widely sought-after cosmetic procedure with generally positive results. However, like any surgical intervention, there is always a risk of potential complications. In certain instances, breast implant revision may become necessary for medical reasons or to alleviate physical discomfort. Whether it’s to address issues related to the implants themselves, changes in breast tissue, or other concerns, breast implant revision allows for corrective measures to ensure the patient’s health, well-being, and overall satisfaction. Seeking consultation with a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon can help determine the best course of action in such cases and ensure the best possible outcomes.

Improved Cosmetic Appearance

In addition to the physical issues resulting from previous implant complications, the aesthetic appearance of the breasts may also be impacted.

Enhanced Self-Esteem and Confidence

When a woman opts for breast augmentation surgery to enhance her appearance, the occurrence of implant complications leading to breast deformity can be distressing. However, breast implant revision offers the potential to transform a negative augmentation experience into a positive one.
