What is Revisional Breast Surgery?

Revisional breast surgery, also known as breast implant revision or secondary breast augmentation, is a surgical procedure performed to correct or improve the results of a previous breast augmentation or reconstruction surgery. It involves making changes to the existing breast implants, addressing complications, or modifying the appearance of the breasts based on the patient’s goals and concerns.
There are several reasons why a patient may consider revisional breast surgery:

Revisional breast surgery is a highly individualized procedure tailored to address each patient’s specific concerns and goals. It requires careful evaluation, planning, and skillful execution by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Fadi Chahin. During a consultation, Dr. Chahin will assess the patient’s previous surgery, discuss their desired outcome, and develop a personalized surgical plan to achieve the best possible results.

What is the process?

During the revisional breast surgery, Dr. Chahin performs the planned adjustments or corrections. This may involve replacing or removing breast implants, adjusting implant size or position, or addressing complications like capsular contracture or implant rupture. Additionally, Dr. Chahin can address shape, contour, addition of a mastopexy, reduction of breast tissue, or additional upper pole fullness if desired. Dr. Chahin may use new incisions or the previous ones, depending on the changes required. If implant replacement is necessary, Dr. Chahin may select a different size, type, or shape to better suit the patient’s preferences and body proportions.

Benefits of Revisional Breast Surgery

Improved Aesthetic Outcome

Revisional breast surgery allows for the correction of unsatisfactory results from a previous breast augmentation. It can address concerns such as asymmetry, implant malposition, implant rippling, or dissatisfaction with the size and shape of the breasts. By making necessary adjustments, the surgery aims to achieve a more pleasing and balanced aesthetic outcome.

Enhanced Breast Symmetry

Revisional surgery can help improve breast symmetry by addressing any noticeable differences in size, shape, or position between the breasts. Dr. Chahin can adjust the implants, reshape the breast pocket, or use additional techniques to create better symmetry and balance. Breast implant surgery is a complex surgical procedure that requires a wealth of surgical experience coupled with a proper vision and planning to accomplish an optimal outcome.

Correction of Complications

In cases where complications have occurred following a primary breast augmentation, revisional surgery offers the opportunity to correct these issues. It can address complications such as capsular contracture (scar tissue formation around the implant), implant rupture or leakage, implant malposition, or other implant-related problems.

Updated Implant Size or Type

Some patients may wish to change the size or type of their breast implants after the initial augmentation. Revisional surgery allows for the removal and replacement of implants to achieve the desired size, shape, or material. This can be beneficial for patients who have experienced changes in their aesthetic preferences or lifestyle.

Improved Confidence and Body Image

For individuals who were dissatisfied with the results of their primary breast augmentation, revisional surgery can help restore confidence and improve body image. By addressing concerns and achieving desired outcomes, patients may experience enhanced self-esteem and satisfaction with their appearance.

Long-Term Satisfaction

Revisional breast surgery aims to provide long-term satisfaction by addressing previous issues and achieving the desired aesthetic goals. By making the necessary adjustments, patients can have renewed confidence and satisfaction with their breast appearance.
Procedure Timeline
During the initial consultation, you will meet Dr. Chahin to discuss your concerns, goals, and previous breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Chahin will evaluate your case, review your medical history, and perform a physical examination. This appointment is crucial for determining the appropriate surgical plan and addressing any questions or concerns you may have.
Once you decide to proceed with revisional breast surgery, pre-operative preparations will be necessary. This may include obtaining pre-operative tests, such as blood work or imaging studies, and providing you with pre-operative instructions. These instructions may include guidelines for medication management, smoking cessation if applicable, and any necessary dietary adjustments.
On the day of the surgery, you will arrive at the surgical facility or hospital. Pre-operative preparations will be performed, such as administering anesthesia and ensuring your comfort. The surgery itself will typically take a few hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure. Afterward, you will be monitored in a recovery area until you are ready to go home or transferred to a hospital room if an overnight stay is required.
The recovery period for revisional breast surgery can vary based on the extent of the procedure and individual healing. You may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the initial days following surgery. Pain medication and post-operative instructions will be provided to help manage any discomfort. It is important to follow Dr. Chahin's guidelines for post-operative care, including resting, avoiding strenuous activities, wearing compression garments if recommended, and attending follow-up appointments.
After your revisional breast surgery, you will have several follow-up appointments with Dr. Chahin. These appointments allow Dr. Chahin to monitor your healing progress, remove any sutures if necessary, and address any concerns or questions you may have. The number and frequency of follow-up appointments will be determined by Dr. Chahin's recommendations.
