What Are the Benefits?

There are a number of reasons patients receive breast revision procedures at Brian Hwang, MD, Plastic Surgery. If individuals hope to alter the size of the implants or address problems from a prior aesthetic treatment, breast revision surgery can help you reach the appearance you are going for with several great benefits, including:

  • Changese implant volume

  • Enhances breast size and firmness

  • Takes out unwanted implants for a simplified look

  • Removes damaged or ruined implants

  • Adjusts the location of implants (if needed)

  • Fixes issues like breast imbalance, rippling, implant shifting, etc.

What to Expect from Breast Revision

Breast revision surgery is usually not as painful as the initial breast augmentation surgery, but it depends on what is being addressed. For women who are getting a smaller size or removal, a breast lift may be necessary to correct loose skin. For other patients who have scar tissue, rippling, or an implant rupture, a more involved procedure may be performed to prevent a recurrence. Following your procedure and a brief observation period, you can go home to start your recovery. Patients should keep in mind that the more difficult the procedure, the longer the recovery process will be. You should slowly start to see your results once the swelling begins to disappear.
