What Is A Breast Revision Surgery?

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States, and in many cases, it offers terrific outcomes. However, sometimes a woman can be dissatisfied with the appearance of her breasts and may need breast revision treatment. It is important to note not all breast revisions are due to doctor errors. While few breast augmentations do end with an unpleasing outcome, there are women who wish to have a different size implant while others may have a visible irregularity and prefer to have the implant corrected or taken out altogether. Furthermore, there are some women who require revision treatment for a specific condition. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez provides breast revision surgery in her accredited OR in Cedar Park, TX. After a thorough assessment at Beleza Surgery, she can design a treatment plan so that the correct outcome is attained.

What Can I Expect from My Breast Revision?

Breast revision surgery is uniquely tailored to your needs and the reason for your breast revision. Some common reasons women choose to have breast revision include:

  • Breast implant removal
  • Ruptured implant
  • Capsular contracture (scar tissue that causes the implant to become displaced)
  • Breast rippling
  • Double bubble implants (when an implant moves out of the implant pocket, causing the appearance of a double breast)
  • Breast size

This procedure can be completed in addition to scar tissue removal and a breast lift. Dr. Hix-Hernandez will complete your procedure based on your specific issues and desires. After your procedure and a brief observation period, you will be sent home to start your recovery. The recovery period varies based on the complexity of your surgery. Revision surgery that needs any type of reconstruction or grafting will incur a longer recovery, which could take up to several months. You should begin to see your surgical results when the swelling begins to disappear. Dr. Hix-Hernandez or someone on her team will go over recommendations to help speed your healing. You should also schedule your follow-up visits as directed so we can assess your healing and results.
