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.

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:

  • Asymmetry
  • Bottoming out
  • Implant size
  • Capsular contracture
  • Implant rippling
  • Implant rupture
  • Symmastia

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.
