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
"Life changing I’ve been trying to get a breast reduction since 2018 and the moment I walked into Dr.Eagan’s office it just felt right. Dr.Eagan is truly the kindest person I’ve ever met. She explained the process of the surgery and post op care. One of the most important things is she cared about what cup size I wanted and she delivered. I went from a F cup to a B /C cup which is exactly what I wanted. Also Dr.Eagan called me the night before and the night after surgery to check on me. When I show people my before and after pictures all they can say is “Wow! What’s the Doctor’s name? Seriously, my back pain is gone and I feel more comfortable with exercising, sleeping, and wearing different clothing. Also, Miss. Yvonne is the sweetest she worked diligently to make sure all my documentation was in order to send to my insurance for approval and explained any questions or concerns I had regarding payment. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon that will provide excellent quality and has great bedside manner. Dr.Eagan is your person. Dr.Eagan and her staff are truly professional and amazing 10/10 highly recommend🙌🏾"- B.L. / Google / Mar 11, 2023

"Dr. Eagan was extremely pleasant as well as her staff! Dr Eagan made sure I was very well prepared for my surgery. Everything was well planned and organized. All the workers at the hospital made me feel so safe and calm being that I was very scared. I haven’t felt 1 ounce of pain since I had my surgery on yesterday and very little discomfort jus like dr Eagan promised. I initially didn’t want any photos posted but when I saw how amazing dr Eagan did on my breast reduction I really wanted her to post them! My reaction was like you wouldn’t believe, I was so excited!

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.
