What Is A Breast Revision Surgery?

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S., and for many patients, it produces beautiful and natural results. While results from breast augmentation procedures are long-lasting, on average women replace their implants once every ten years. Breast implant exchange is replacing old implants with new implants. Often the goal is to change or improve the appearance of the breasts, increase or decrease the size of the breast implant, or updating the implant material. At Forma Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons provide breast implant exchange surgery and perform an in-depth consultation to help reach your desired results.

What to Expect with a Breast Implant Exchange

Breast implant exchange surgery either takes out an implant that is no longer wanted or an implant that is possibly defective. This surgery also works well for patients who desire a different implant size or type. Patients can also experience other common issues that may require revision surgery, including:

  • Asymmetry
  • Bottoming out
  • Breast size
  • Capsular contracture
  • Implant rippling
  • Implant rupture
  • Symmastia

Depending on your needs, we will discuss the best techniques for your condition or for changing out the implant. At your consultation, our surgeons assess your condition and develop a personalized surgical plan. No matter the issue, each procedure will start with general anesthesia to help keep you comfortable. Generally, you can go home on the same day, but you will have a brief observation period in the recovery room.

Following your procedure, your recovery will depend on what is involved during your surgery. You should slowly start to see your results once the swelling disappears, and we will provide detailed aftercare instructions to encourage healing and increase comfort throughout this process.
