Breast Implant Revision
Breast implants often go problem-free for most patients. In some, implants can shift causing an undesirable shape or contour. Revision surgery can help correct whatever problem exists with breast implants.
Breast implant revision can take 1-3 hours to perform depending on the complexity.
This procedure usually involves making the same incision as you had before and making changes to the breast implant capsule, which is the tissue that surrounds the implant under your breast.
Typically, revisional surgery is for implants that are:
- Too high
- Too low
- Too much to the side
- Too close together
Recovery from this surgery typically is 1 week off from work or school although many go back after a few days. Revisional surgery has a significantly easier recovery than the initial breast augmentation.
