Breast Augmentation Revision
WHY BREAST AUGMENTATION REVISION
Women who have undergone a breast augmentation in the past may later decide the results no longer suit them. Many of these ladies will seek out a breast augmentation revision performed at Miami Valley Plastic Surgeons, serving patients throughout Dayton, Centerville, Miamisburg, Huber Heights, and the surrounding cities in Ohio.
A breast augmentation revision is performed to alter the previous results of a boob job. It involves removing implants and replacing them with ones that are a different size, shape, or texture. In some cases, implants may be removed completely because a woman decides she no longer desires them.
Breast augmentation revision surgery can:
Any woman who is considering a breast augmentation revision should be in good health and not be taking any medications that might interfere with anesthesia. Ladies should also have not experienced any complications from their previous breast augmentation surgery.
Your surgeon will discuss the need for a mammogram or breast exam prior to your revision. You may also need to stop smoking or refrain from taking certain medications that might interfere with anesthesia.
On the day of your procedure, we will verify the purpose for your revision to ensure the correct procedure is performed. If you are receiving new implants, we will confirm the size and type with you as well. Your revision procedure will be much like your original augmentation, requiring general anesthesia and a recovery period afterwards.
A breast augmentation revision takes slightly longer than a breast augmentation, due to the time that’s required to remove your existing implants. Most augmentation surgeries take between two and four hours to complete.
It may take some time to get used to your new results. As the swelling subsides and your body returns to normal, you will gradually adjust to your new shape, becoming more confident about your figure as time goes on.
Our surgeons do their best to disguise scars, but cannot guarantee they will not be noticeable. The technique used during your prior procedure will play a role in where and how new incisions are made. It’s also important to note that if you already have visible scars, a breast augmentation revision will not eliminate them.
As with your original augmentation, results will be noticed immediately.
Your results are permanent, lasting as long as you maintain your current weight or until you desire another revision surgery in the future.
If you are changing the size of your breasts, you may want to consider a breast lift. This is especially true if you are decreasing the size of your implants, as you might notice some loose, sagging skin afterwards.
Because you may have different needs than any other patient, we will not be able to discuss the exact cost with you until after your consultation. Cash, personal checks, and credit cards are always accepted for any of the procedures we offer, and many of our patients will also qualify for low-interest financing.
