Our primary goal in a breast revision procedure is to address your implant-related concerns, so you feel satisfied with your breast augmentation procedure. If you’re no longer happy with the results of your breast augmentation, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bachelor plastic surgeon in Pleasanton or Danville.
Reasons For Breast Implant Revision
- Desire to change implant size or type
- Rupture or deflation of a breast implant
- Poor position of implants
- Delayed complications of surgery, such as capsular contracture or scarring
“I’ve performed more than 6,000 breast augmentations, so I have a lot of experience. I also do a lot of revisional breast surgery for patients who I inherit from other surgeons. These procedures require a special approach and expertise.”
– Dr. Bachelor
Like your first surgery, we administer anesthesia to perform the revision. When possible, we will also use the same incision locations to perform your surgery.
Your existing implants will be removed and new breast implants will be placed within each breast pocket.To provide support and/or address complications, the tissues surrounding your implants may be repositioned or reinforced with a tissue substitute such as Alloderm or Strattice. Incisions will be closed with sutures and surgical dressing will cover the breasts.
There will be some bruising and swelling after surgery. You can manage discomfort with medications as prescribed by plastic surgeon Dr. Bachelor. Bandages will be removed in a day or two. We will advise you to wear a supportive bra for a few weeks as you heal.
In general, normal activity can be resumed 7-10 days after revision surgery. Because each patient has unique circumstances, the recovery time may vary. Specific details about the expected recovery will be discussed during your consultation.
