What Is Revisionary Breast Surgery?

Revisionary breast surgery is a type of cosmetic or reconstructive breast surgery that is performed to correct or improve the results of a previous breast surgery. It may be necessary if the original breast surgery results in complications or if the patient is not satisfied with the outcome. Revisionary breast surgery can involve various techniques, such as removing or replacing breast implants, adjusting the placement of the implants, reshaping the breast tissue, or correcting asymmetry.

Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS has extensive experience with a wide range of breast procedures and will call upon his vast knowledge of advanced surgical techniques to ensure that you’re able to enjoy the results you know you deserve. Feeling frustrated with a breast augmentation that doesn’t meet your expectations is an experience that nobody deserves, and it can be downright frightening to discover that you’re dealing with complications arising from an implant-based breast augmentation surgery.

If either of these experiences sounds like yours, Dr. Rogers is here for you. He’ll meet with you to learn about the frustrations you’re experiencing and help you chart a course that sees you regaining your ideal silhouette. If you’re located in Pasadena, Beverly Hills, or anywhere else in the world, we’re here and ready to help. Simply reach out to Dr. Rogers and his team in Beverly Hills and speak with a helpful member of our support staff to get your initial consultation set up and start your restorative journey today.

The Benefits of Revisionary Breast Surgery

Revisionary breast surgery is an ideal way to restore your appearance and quality of life in equal measure, especially if you’re experiencing complications after a previous breast augmentation procedure. Many patients experience significant relief after these complications are addressed. Conversely, some patients are simply unhappy with the outcome of their breast augmentation. In these cases, Dr. Rogers can revise your results and unite you with the outcome that you would prefer. Our patients love revisionary breast surgery for its ability to:

  • Correct complications
  • Improve aesthetic appearance
  • Include customizable options
  • Enhance self-confidence
  • Increase your sense of comfort
  • Improve your breast health

Do I Qualify for Revisionary Breast Surgery?

The Ideal Patient

Revisionary breast surgery is typically performed on patients who have previously undergone breast surgery and are experiencing complications or are not satisfied with the results. If you’re in good overall health, are fully healed from your previous surgery, and are dissatisfied with your previous results, you may be a candidate for this procedure. 

What’s Right for Me?

The first step in determining whether or not you’re right for this procedure will be meeting with Dr. Rogers. His extensive experience and vast knowledge will enable him to work closely with you to choose the procedural option that’s ideal for you, your lifestyle, and your personal surgical goals. His aim is always to leave you with total peace of mind.

Common Implant-Related Complications?

Common implant-related complications include scar tissue formation around the implant, rippling, imbalanced placement and/or shape, deflation, and dissatisfaction with size. Just as body types vary, so will the treatment option that is ideal for revision. The surgery you need may be similar to your primary breast augmentation, or it may be entirely different depending on your condition and expectations. Fat grafting or implant-free breast augmentation is an excellent option for patients who are looking to increase the size of their primary implant surgery. Some women may also require a breast lift to raise and firm their breasts as part of their revisionary breast surgery treatment.

The Day of Your Breast Revision Surgery

The most common type of anesthesia used for revisionary breast surgery is general anesthesia. This involves administering medication through an IV or a mask to put the patient into a deep sleep, so you won’t feel anything during your surgical procedure.

The duration of the procedure can range from a few hours to several hours, depending on the complexity of the revision. Dr. Rogers will provide you with an estimated timeframe for the surgery based on the specific needs of the patient and the surgical plan.

In most cases, Dr. Rogers is able to utilize the incision lines that were made as a part of the initial procedure, eliminating the need for any additional scarring once the procedure is over and enabling you to enjoy a somewhat reduced recovery period.

Your Recovery Experience

The length of your recovery period will vary according to your personalized surgical plan. Most patients find that they can return to work and resume normal activities within a few weeks of their surgery. You’ll likely experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the days and weeks following the surgery, so Dr. Rogers and his team will ensure that you have everything you need to heal comfortably. He’ll also be sure to schedule follow-up appointments with a team available to you at all times so you can rest, relax, and look forward to your exciting new results.
