How much does Breast Implant Revision Plastic Surgery Cost?Breast implant revision plastic surgery procedure may be performed either to remove or replace the existing implants. At the time of initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss various aspects of breast implant revision procedure, including its estimated financial implications. The first concern of the surgeon will be to educate the patient and help her make a well-considered decision.

The patient should feel free to ask questions about the costs, payment methods as well as insurance and financing aspects during the consultation. Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by the sagacious, tremendous, and board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides breast implant revision surgery to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding communities in this section of the Northeast.


Cost of Implants Covered by Warranty

Leading breast implant manufacturers such as Allergan offer a comprehensive 10-year warranty on certain types of silicone gel implants. If the patient needs to replace the implants following capsular contracture, she can get a free replacement under the warranty if all the conditions are fulfilled. Certain warranty benefits are also applicable to saline implants in case of deflation.

Allergan offers lifetime product warranty on both saline and silicone implants for Natrelle line of implants and some other types. In this case, if the implant is damaged due to compromised integrity of the outer silicone shell, the company will replace the implants of similar size for free.


Extent of Surgery

Sometimes the patient may want only breast implant removal and not replacement as a part of breast revision plastic surgery. If the breast skin has remained stretched for a number of years with the implants, it may sag now in the absence of implants. Therefore, the surgeon may recommend breast lift surgery in conjunction with implant removal procedure.

In some other cases, the patient may want to replace the implants with a different type or size as per her changed preferences. In such a situation, the cost of the new implants may have to be borne by her.


Financial Factors  

Where the practice is located will make a considerable difference to the overall cost of the breast implant revision surgery in many cases. The cost of living can vary from one region to another, which will reflect in the average cost of most types of products and services, including cosmetic procedures.

The surgeon may charge a fee according to their qualifications and experience, which will influence the overall cost. Patients should ideally choose a board certified plastic surgeon who would invest in high quality standards and best medical practices to deliver safe and desirable outcomes in every case.

Breast implant revision surgery may be performed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation at a hospital or an accredited surgical center. The costs of anesthesia, surgical venue, and post-operative expenses can also vary in each case. The surgeon will apprise the patient of their best options, explain the potential benefits and limitations under each option, and help the patient make the right choices.
