Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery

While most women who undergo breast augmentation are happy with their end results, there are a variety of reasons you may feel dissatisfied with your implants. In other cases, complications such as implant rupture need surgical attention. In either case, breast implant revision can help. Dr. Tracy E. McCall offers breast augmentation revision surgery for a range of patients at Lake Country Plastic & Hand Surgery in Waukesha, WI. She can tailor the procedure to your unique needs and goals so you can feel comfortable and confident.

When to Consider Implant Revision

There is a range of reasons women seek a revision surgery for their implants, such as:

  • Capsular contracture
  • The desire to change the size or shape of breasts
  • Dissatisfaction in the results of a previous surgery
  • Migration or rupture of an implant
  • Changes in your body over time that affect your results

If implant rupture, capsular contracture, or other issues have affected the results of a previous surgery, Dr. McCall can provide the necessary revisions.

Planning Your Revision

Depending on your needs, Dr. McCall may recommend one or more treatments to achieve your desired results, such as reshaping the implant pocket to reposition the implant or placing a different size, shape, or style of implant. In other cases, a procedure such as a breast lift may be the best way to meet your goals.

Regardless of the procedure type, revision surgery is more difficult to perform than an initial surgery. That is why it is very important to choose a reputable plastic surgeon with a track record of delivering excellent results.

What Happens during Implant Revision Surgery?

While the exact nature of your breast augmentation revision procedure will depend on your unique needs, there are some common steps involved in most revision surgeries. On the day of your appointment, we will first administer sedation to ensure you are comfortable. 

Next, Dr. McCall will make discreet incisions to access your implant and perform the necessary refinements. The type of incision used depends on the procedures being performed. Dr. McCall may place them under the crease of the breast or around the areola. If she needs to use a lift technique, different incisions will be used.

Revision surgery is more difficult than an initial surgery. That is why it is important to choose a reputable plastic surgeon.

Recovery and Results

Healing time after breast implant revision is different for everyone. Initially, your breasts will be wrapped in gauze or bandages. Dr. McCall may also place a compression garment to help with your recovery process.

It will take at least six weeks for swelling to decrease. After this time, your breasts will likely start to soften and feel more natural. However, it can take six to 12 months for breasts to feel completely normal again. Most patients begin to notice a difference after the initial six weeks, though it could take a full year to realize your final results. 

Feel Confident in Your Results

To undergo a breast augmentation and then feel dissatisfied with your results for any reason is a terrible feeling. Fortunately, Dr. McCall has been helping patients achieve their desired figures for over 15 years, and she is prepared to help you experience the satisfaction you deserve.
