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
"Honestly this has been a difficult process both physically & emotionally but Dr. Eagan has been incredibly supportive. She is extremely caring, informative and most importantly she does beautiful work. It’s all been worth it. I love the results of my mastopexy. I highly recommend her & wouldn’t hesitate to go back to her for any future procedures."- V.S. / Yelp / Aug 06, 2021
"I first went to Dr. Eagon for under eye filler and a consultation for a breast augmentation and lift. The moment I meet Dr. Eagon she was the sweetest plastic surgeon I have ever meet. Previously I went to many plastic surgeons for consults and their personalities are not comparable to Dr. Eagon. After the filler was placed and my consultation was complete I knew she was the one! She was extremely thorough in the consultation and made me feel so comfortable. After the consultation I had my preop appointment and being a mom, I had to bring my kids. She was even more thorough at that appointment with a 3 year old present. She wasn’t even phased by his disruption and was so kind to my kids. Her receptionist was amazing through the entire process, as well. Now 2 weeks post op I love my results. I loved my results 2 days post surgery. Did I mention she called me the night I had surgery to call and check on me! That’s impressive. If your looking for a plastic surgeon I can’t recommend her enough. I encounter many physicians on a daily basis at work and I can tell you she is one of the most caring doctors I have ever met, and her work is amazing!"- K.E. / Google / Jul 29, 2021
"Michelle's expertise made the procedure a lot less painful than expected. I was definitely relieved. At every level, start to finish, she worked with me. It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, SHE'S THE BEST!"- A.C. / Google / Mar 24, 2021
"I had a few friends recommend Dr. Eagan to me. When I tell you I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and CRIED I mean it. I feel like a totally new person. I feel HOT and like I can take on the world. I got in my car, put on some music rolled down my windows and just sang which is so unlike me but how much better I feel about myself has changed everything. She was so sweet and gentle. I was really nervous walking in and she explained everything so patiently. I won’t be going to anyone else ever. I love love love my new lips and my new attitude."- K.B. / Google / Mar 19, 2021
Is Breast Revision Right For You?
If you have any worries (either medical or cosmetic) about your breast implants, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Eagan to discuss your goals and to develop your unique breast revision surgery plan. Whether it is scar tissue, drooping or sagging, rippling, or uneven breasts, revision surgery can help treat the problem so you have a more appealing look and properly functioning outcome. This procedure can help if you want to change your implant type or address another aspect of your breasts.
Common Reasons for Revision
Breast revision surgery changes an implant that doesn't properly function or completely removes it. We can also perform breast revision surgery to change the implant size or type, such as silicone or saline. Patients may suffer from a few common conditions that require breast revision surgery, including:
- Bottoming out
- Implant size
- Capsular contracture
- Implant rippling
- Implant rupture
If you experience any of these issues, Dr. Eagan can assess your condition and create a treatment plan that helps with the issue.
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.
How much does breast revision surgery cost?
The cost of breast revision surgery will depend on what needs to be done. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will listen carefully to your needs, assess your condition, and create a personalized treatment plan. The total cost of revision surgery is based on the complexity of your procedure. It's best to concentrate on getting great results by finding a skilled doctor, like Dr. Eagan. To help make your surgery easier to afford, we offer various payment methods.
