The majority of women who have undergone a breast augmentation are very satisfied with their results — especially those who were treated by board-certified plastic surgeons. However, the body changes over time, and implants do not last a lifetime. A secondary breast augmentation procedure (called a breast revision) can correct any defects that may have developed over time. Some women also require a secondary surgery to correct unsatisfactory results from an initial breast augmentation. In any case, a breast revision in Orange County can restore the natural, beautiful look you desire.

What is breast revision surgery?

Breast revision surgery is a procedure performed to reshape the breast and remove or replace implants from a prior breast augmentation. It is more complex than the initial augmentation, and requires advanced surgical techniques that demand a certain level of expertise.

Some women choose breast revision surgery, a procedure to remove and replace breast implants. Others choose to have breast explant surgery (removal of the breast implants) and do not want the implants replaced, but want to return to their natural size.  When breast implants are removed without replacing the implants, a breast lift can be performed to remove skin stretched by the breast implants.

Prior to surgery, Dr. Song will work with you to design a personalized surgical plan to treat your specific areas of dissatisfaction.

Reasons for breast revision

Women choose to undergo breast revision surgery for various reasons. Some of the most common reason include:

  • Unsatisfying cosmetic results from a previous surgery
  • A change in size preference
  • Capsular contracture (scar tissue tightens and hardens around one or both implants)
  • Implant rupture or leakage (caused by breast trauma, implant age, or implant malfunction)
  • Implant rippling, bottoming out, or fold malposition 
  • Symmastia (loss of cleavage, appearing as a single breast mound)
  • Breast implant deflation 
  • Asymmetry of the breasts
  • The decision to remove implants
  • Medical indications such as disease, trauma, or surgery

Many women are also opting to exchange their saline breast implants for silicone gel breast implants, as silicone gel implants look and feel more natural, last longer, and have less complications.

What is the recovery from breast revision surgery?

Recovery following breast augmentation revision or implant removal is typically quicker than what you experienced after your initial breast augmentation. However, some changes, such as moving your breast implants from over to under the pectoral muscles, may result in slightly more discomfort and downtime.

After your surgery: What to expect

Following surgery, patients often experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the chest area for several days. Most women will be able to resume work and social activity within the first week. Strenuous activities such as heavy lifting or vigorous exercise will be restricted for two weeks.
