Breast Augmentation Revisions

Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery operations yearly. Unfortunately, revision rates following the primary augmentation remain high, and this can be attributed to several factors, from ruptured implants to a patient's desire for a change in appearance.

Additionally, saline implants lose a small percentage of their volume over time due to evaporation. Not only does this result in a change in the patient's breast shape, or 'fullness,' but it can also lead to noticeable implant rippling and other cosmetic issues.

Preparing for Breast Revision Surgery

To best prepare for your operation, Dr. Meade will usually ask the following of his patients:

  • To undergo further medical evaluation and laboratory testing
  • To abstain from certain prescribed medications and dietary supplements
  • To cease smoking and the consumption of alcohol and drugs
  • To make sure they are well hydrated, especially in the days before their procedure

What to Expect From The Procedure

As many factors must be addressed during a breast revision procedure, your particular surgery details will be unique. Dr. Meade will discuss with you exactly what your procedure will entail and how to prepare for it and support the results of the surgery with conscientious and attentive aftercare. Remember that his team is always available to take your calls should an unexpected situation arise!

How Painful Is Breast Revision?

Since breast revision is a secondary procedure, patients tend to have a good idea of what they're facing. The breast implant recovery procedure does involve some discomfort, although it is generally quite manageable with the right pain medications. All of this, of course, will be discussed during your initial consultation with Dr. Meade. 

What Is Revision Surgery For Breast Cancer?

Revision surgery after breast cancer can improve the aesthetic appearance of the chest wall. An unsatisfactory mastectomy procedure can almost always be improved with a revision, often dramatically. This is certainly something that can be discussed in full with Dr. Meade.

Recovery and Results

Most patients can return to their daily routines after a week or two, but vigorous activities should be avoided for at least three weeks. During this time, any bruising, swelling, numbness, or tingling will decrease, and if you have had new implants placed, they will settle into their final position as the breasts fully heal.
