Revisional Breast Surgery

There are many reasons why a woman may desire revisional breast surgery. The majority of patients considering this procedure wish to change the size of their breasts. Others may have noticed changes to their bodies following weight loss or pregnancy. At our Fayetteville, AR, practice, Dr. H. Daniel Atwood can perform revisional breast surgery for patients who are unhappy with their original breast augmentation or have experienced implant complications, such as capsular contracture.

More about Revisional Breast Surgery

Revisional breast surgery is a personalized procedure catered to the unique needs of the patient. While some women may simply wish to change the size of their breast implants, others may need to change the position of their implants. Revisional breast surgery may be performed immediately after a rupture. It can also be performed several months (or even years) after the original breast augmentation.

Am I a Candidate for Revisional Breast Surgery?

The most common indication for revisional breast surgery is dissatisfaction with the initial results. For example, women may choose this procedure if:

  • The breasts are asymmetrical in shape or size.
  • The breasts are smaller or larger than originally desired.
  • The nipples are asymmetrical.
  • The breast implants do not look or feel natural.

Women who are considering revisional breast surgery should be in good general health and free of any medical condition that would make surgery a risk. During an initial consultation with Dr. Atwood, he can review your health history in detail and help you determine if the procedure is right for you.

How Is Revisional Breast Surgery Performed?

To perform revisional breast surgery, Dr. Atwood will create incisions and carefully remove the old implants. The new implants will be placed to create a more natural appearance. If at all possible, the new incisions will be made in the same locations as before, to minimize post-surgical scarring. In some cases, the nipples and areolas may need to be repositioned. Also, if necessary, Dr. Atwood will tighten existing tissue or remove excess skin to achieve the desired results.

Healing and Recovery

In general, recovery following revisional breast surgery is similar to the recovery after your original breast augmentation. Since it is a surgical procedure, patients can expect some degree of stiffness, discomfort, and swelling. These side effects are temporary and will diminish over time. Any tenderness can be addressed with over-the-counter pain relievers or prescription medications.

You may also be provided with a compression bra to wear during recovery to support healing tissues and reduce inflammation. Since each patient is unique, Dr. Atwood will provide specific post-operative guidelines for your situation. It is important to follow these instructions closely to ensure a comfortable and successful recovery.
