What Is A Breast Revision Surgery?
Breast augmentation with implants is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S., and in many cases, it creates beautiful outcomes. Unfortunately, sometimes a patient can feel dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts and may need breast revision surgery. Please keep in mind that not all revision treatments happen because of practitioner error. While some surgeries do end with a poor outcome, many individuals may prefer a different implant size or have a damaged implant that requires replacement or complete removal. Additionally, some women may need revision surgery for a specific condition. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana, Dr. Michelle Eagan offers breast revision surgery so patients can attain their desired outcome.
"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020

"I had an incredible experience with Dr. Eagan at New Orleans Plastic Surgery. Dr. Eagan is very talented and knowledgeable. After two pregnancies that left me with irreversible damage to my stomach, I had a tummy tuck with abdominal muscle repair. My results exceeded my expectations. Dr. Eagan patiently addressed all of my questions. She gave me options for my specific situation and was not pushy about adding any additional unnecessary procedures. I was given all of the information I needed prior to surgery and for after-care. She was readily available in the days following the surgery for any concerns and gave me the right combination of medication to keep me out of pain. I followed all of her directions and feel like I had a quick and successful recovery. I couldn’t be happier with my incision. It is really straight, thin, symmetrical, no dog ears, and well placed. Having my muscle separation repaired restored my ability to properly workout, dance, and do all of the things I was lacking the confidence to do. I’m so happy to have my life and body back.LikeShare"- V.R. / Yelp / May 01, 2023

What to Expect
Following your surgery and a brief observation period, we will send you home to start your recovery. Recovery from a revision surgery depends on the complexity of your procedure. Revision surgery that incorporates complex reconstruction techniques will require longer recovery time. Sometimes, this could take several months. Once the bruising and swelling subside, you should begin to see your results. Dr. Eagan or someone from her team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help with healing. You will need to schedule follow-up visits so Dr. Eagan can assess your healing and results.

What if PrimaryPractitioner.ShortName- wasn't my original surgeon?
Dr. Eagan can perform your breast revision surgery even if she wasn't your original surgeon. Breast revision surgery is sometimes more difficult compared to augmentation surgery especially if you want dramatic changes or have problems, which is why it's best to find a plastic surgeon who has years of experience and advanced training in breast surgery. Dr. Eagan also encourages her patients to return to New Orleans Plastic Surgery for breast revision surgery after their augmentation surgery if they notice a problem or want new implants.
What about loose skin?
When you are getting your implants exchanged or removed, you may want to have excess skin removed as well. After hearing your goals and evaluating your current implants, Dr. Eagan can discuss the need for a breast lift to remove loose skin. If you lose a significant amount of weight, get pregnant, or breastfeed after augmentation surgery, a breast revision combined with a lift gives you better results.
