What is Breast Revision Surgery
Breast revision surgery is a cosmetic procedure to change implant shape or size or correct an issue from a previous breast augmentation surgery. A breast revision can involve removing scar tissue, correcting pocket issues within the breast or revising a breast lift. A breast revision surgery can not only correct unpleasant and unsightly complications but can also provide you with the outcome that you were initially seeking: youthful, full, uplifted breasts that have a natural look and feel.
Reasons Why Breast Revision Is Needed After Breast Augmentation
There are in fact multiple reasons why patients may seek breast revision surgery. Some women go through breast augmentation surgery just fine but require revision surgery after their anatomy changes due to variables like weight fluctuations or pregnancy. These types of body changes can significantly alter the look of breast implants and cause patients to grow unhappy with their look and feel. Below is a list of factors that can cause breast revision surgery to become necessary:
- Capsular contracture of implants – here hard scar tissue forms around the implant.
- Breast implant pocket problem – when this occurs, the implant can slip into the armpit or side of the body. The implant can also “bottom out,” which refers to what happens when the implant falls under the crease of the breast.
- Cleavage problem – implants were placed too wide apart during surgery or poor implant choice affected the look of the implants.
- Improvement of implant choice – Sometimes patients want to upgrade to a more advanced, natural-looking, and feeling implant. This can help improve breast shape and eliminate a too-wide or flat look. Patients may also want to change the size of their implants.
- Muscle issues – this can include animation deformity, where the chest muscle was not detached properly during surgery.
- Previous lift or reduction asymmetry – These breast augmentation surgery shortcomings can include not properly measured breasts, and areola that are asymmetrical, oversized, or irregularly shaped.
Breast Revision Cost
When considering breast implant replacement costs, it’s important to understand that every revision carries with it its own unique set of variables. This makes no two breast revisions the same. The cost of breast implant replacement is just one part of the cost. So how much does it cost to replace breast implants? The breast implant revision price will factor in both the materials used, the complications that need to be overcome, and the experience of the surgery you’ve chosen to work with. Therefore breast augmentation revision costs can be anywhere from several thousand dollars to upwards of $75,000.
