What Is Breast Revision?

Breast revision is a surgical procedure typically used to either remove or replace breast implants to improve their appearance or correct complications. In some cases, the surgery may involve correcting aesthetic issues while keeping the same implants.

How Much Does Breast Revision Generally Cost?

In most cases, health insurance will not cover breast revision surgery. On average, the cost of the procedure can be anywhere from $6,000 to $15,000 depending on the specifics of the surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Stephens will provide you with detailed information about the cost of your treatment.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Revision?

If you aren’t happy with the results of your breast augmentation or have experienced problems with your implants, breast revision surgery could provide the following benefits:

  • Improved breast appearance
  • Increased or decreased breast size
  • Improved breast symmetry
  • Corrected breast implant issues such as capsular contracture or a leaking implant
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Additional wardrobe options

Who Is a Candidate for Breast Revision?

Adults who aren’t satisfied with their breast implants could be good candidates for breast revision surgery. To be an ideal candidate, you should meet the following requirements:

  • You are unsatisfied with the appearance of your breast implants
  • You’ve experienced capsular contracture, a ruptured or leaking implant, or any other breast implant complication
  • The appearance of your implants has changed due to weight gain or loss
  • You’re in generally good physical health
  • You have realistic expectations

What Should I Expect During the Surgery?

If you’re considering breast revision surgery, you can start by having a consultation with Dr. Stephens. He will talk with you about the procedure and your situation to make sure that it’s the best choice for you. If you decide to proceed, he will work with you to devise a personalized treatment plan that’s specific to your needs.

Breast revision surgery typically takes about one to two hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Once you’re asleep, Dr. Stephens will begin by making incisions either beneath the folds of the breasts or around the edges of the areolas. Then, he will remove your current breast implants, and if you’ve opted for replacement implants, he will carefully insert your new customized silicone or saline implants. Finally, he will close the incisions with sutures and apply bandages to the breasts.

What Is the Recovery Like?

You may experience pain and discomfort for a few days after your breast revision, but Dr. Stephens may prescribe you medication to alleviate these symptoms. You’ll need to rest quite a bit for several days following the surgery, but you should be able to resume your normal routine after about a week. However, you’ll need to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least two to three weeks.
