Breast Revision Restore Your Body Confidence

Many things can cause a person to seek the removal or revision of a breast implant: Breast implants can change in size, rupture over time, or become aesthetically malpositioned in many cases. Dissatisfactory results, which may come directly after your breast augmentation surgery or years later, can be physically and emotionally distressing. This is why it’s so important to be aware of the possible risks before moving forward with a breast augmentation procedure. To learn more, reach out to our offices in Richmond, Northern Virginia, Charlottesville, or Washington DC and set up your consultation with a helpful member of our team today.

When to Consider Breast Revision

Patients often become dissatisfied with their previous breast augmentation procedures for a variety of reasons. To perform a thorough correction of a breast implant/surgery, the reason for dissatisfaction must be identified first. If you are truly dissatisfied with your surgery, you have a few options to improve your results. Implants can be removed or replaced with saline IDEAL implants or newer silicone implants, and you can adjust their size, shape, or projection during this procedure, as well. You may consider breast revision if you’re experiencing:

  • Dissatisfaction with size
  • Capsular contracture
  • Rupture
  • Misplaced implants
  • Rippling
  • Aesthetic changes over time

A Highly Specialized Procedure Customized to Your Individual Needs

Extensive Experience

Breast revisions and removals require highly specialized professionals that have both experience and credentials to match. Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin are board-certified plastic surgeons who have and continue to take extreme care of their patients and procedures. 

A Customized Procedure

In each case, no two breast removal or revision procedures are the same. Removal can be performed with or without capsulectomy, along with possible mastopexy and fat grafting. Since these procedures can vary greatly, the doctors offer a thorough consultation process.

Your Breast Revision Experience

Breast revision typically takes about as much time to complete as the original breast augmentation procedure, and can be performed utilizing the same incisions so that you don’t have to worry about the presence of additional scarring once your procedure is over. Things like surgical technique, incision placement, and other details will be discussed with you in detail during your preoperative consultation.

The surgery will be performed under general anesthesia and Dr. Sundin will complete the revision based on the surgical plan that you developed together. No two revision procedures are exactly the same, and your surgery will be designed to accomplish the results that brought you to the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, in the first place. Once your procedure is over, you’ll spend some time in a recovery area.

Recovery After Breast Revision

You’ll be able to return home on the same day as your procedure, but you’ll need a friend to drive you around as you’ll remain quite groggy while the anesthesia continues to wear off over the course of several hours. During this time, it’ll help to have someone around to help you say comfortable. You can anticipate a recovery period of about two to three weeks, and you’ll need to abstain from heavy lifting for six weeks. You’ll receive detailed recovery instructions during your consultation.
