What can breast augmentation revision do for me?
With the help of our skilled physicians, you will finally look the way you wanted. We replace implants, if necessary, and perform whatever alterations are necessary to fix the unsatisfactory results of your prior breast augmentation.
At HK, we carry all types of FDA-approved breast implants, so you can rest assured knowing that we will help you find the perfect fit for your breast revision.
What can I expect during breast augmentation revision?
Your surgical plan will depend on what is required. Often, we replace implants and modify the placement of the implant to achieve a more natural and beautiful result.
Some women are dissatisfied with the size or shape of their original breast implants. In these cases, we replace the implants with a smaller or larger size and/or different shape. This problem is unlikely to happen with Vectra 3D Imaging, which we can use to make absolutely sure that you choose the size and shape of implant you want. With these images, you will be able to see exactly how you will look after your revision surgery.
- Sometimes, a revision is needed because the patient has suffered a capsular contracture of the implant, which requires that we replace the implants and remove scar tissue.
- If saline implants have not worked for you, we replace them with silicone gel, which we have found works very well in these cases.
- If your breasts look unnatural or undesirable due to subglandular placement of the implants, we can convert the placement to a submuscular position for a more natural look.
- We can also correct mismatched breasts either in terms of size or placement (one higher than the other).
How long does it take to recover from a breast augmentation revision?
Recovery from breast augmentation revision is similar to recovery from breast augmentation. Most women are able to return to normal activities within a few days, except for lifting and strenuous exercise.
As with your first breast augmentation, you can expect some swelling, bruising, tenderness, and tightness. We will monitor your progress and give you full instructions to help you recover from your surgery as fast as possible.
