Am I A Candidate For Revision Breast Surgery?



Revision (Secondary) Breast Augmentation Surgery

For many women, breast augmentation surgery is a way to achieve fuller breasts that are in better proportion with their body frame. They can also provide a boost to self-esteem and make women feel more youthful and sensual. However, some patients find that their original breast augmentation procedure has not yielded the results they had hoped for, and others are affected by complications that have arisen after the procedure. Reasons patients may desire breast revision surgery include:

• Breast implants are too large or too small
• The desire to switch from saline to silicone implants or vice/versa
• The desire to go back to their original breast size
Capsular contracture, scar tissue forming around the implant that can cause a painful hardened feeling in the breasts
• Implant deflation or rupture
• Rippling appearance to the implant
• Infection around incision sites
• Asymmetrical appearance caused by shifting of the implant or awkward implant shape
• Breast revision surgery or implant removal may also be necessary if a patient is undergoing unrelated health problems such as breast cancer, which may be more easily treated without the implant.

Revision (Secondary) Breast Lift / Reduction Surgery

Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy) and Breast Reduction Surgery are also a way for many woman to achieve “perkier” breasts that in better proportion with their body frame or to alleviate pain or discomfort caused by overly large breasts. However, similar to above, some patients find that their original procedure has not yielded the results they had hoped for. Some common reasons paitents may desire revision surgery after a breast lift or reduction procedure include:

• Unnatural, non-round breast shape due to poor surgical skill in a priorlift / reduction procedure
• Asymmetrical appearance due to a suboptimal amount of tissue removed in a prior procedure
• Infection around incision sites
• Similar complications to a prior breast augmentation procedure above if patient has previously undergone an augmentation/mastopexy combined procedure

Dr. Zuckerman will meet with you in an initial breast revision surgery consultation to discuss all aspects of breast revision surgery, your goals for results, and whether breast revision surgery is the right procedure for your unique needs.

Revision Breast Surgery in Detail



Depending on your needs and goals, Dr. Zuckerman can perform breast revision surgery in a number of ways. Saline implant removal typically involves the deflation of the implant before removing it. Then, Dr. Zuckerman will eliminate any existing scar tissue. Silicone implant removal is typically more involved and may require some surrounding muscle and tissue to be removed as well. If you are undergoing a removal and replacement breast revision surgery, the new implants are generally placed immediately after the original implants have been removed. Dr. Zuckerman will take the greatest care to ensure the results meet your expectations and look natural and symmetrical.

For revision breast lift / reduction procedures, Dr. Zuckerman’s operative plan will also vary based on your needs and goals. If you would like to correct asymmetry, he may only need to re-operate on one breast.

The time it takes to perform breast revision surgery will depend on the extent of your procedure. Breast revision surgery is often performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Breast revision surgery can be performed in the accredited operating rooms located inside Dr. Zuckerman’s office in midtown Manhattan. Accreditation from the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) signifies the highest standard of care in a fully equipped surgical environment. Dr. Zuckerman and his highly trained team of professionals will do their utmost to ensure your privacy, discretion, and comfort in achieving the best surgical outcome possible for you.

Revision Breast Surgery Recovery



The recovery process for breast revision procedures is dependent on which type of revision surgery you have undergone. Implant removal typically results in some mild discomfort, bruising, and swelling after surgery; however, this can be managed with medication. Implant replacement patients can expect some bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the few days after the procedure, although this can also be managed with medication. Patients who have undergone implant replacement may also be fitted for a compression bra for a few weeks after surgery to help the progression of healing.

Breast revision surgery patients are advised to not participate in strenuous activities or activities that could strain or harm the breasts for at least six weeks after surgery. Depending on the procedure you have undergone, most patients are able to resume normal daily routines a few days after the procedure.

For recovery information specific to your procedure, visit the Breast Augmentation Surgery Recovery section or the Breast Lift Recovery sections.
