Is Recovery from Breast Implant Revision the Same as Breast Augmentation?

If you’ve had breast augmentation surgery, but are no longer satisfied with your results, you may need breast revision surgery. This surgery corrects problems associated with previous breast surgeries. It can be used to change implant size, to replace an implant that has ruptured, to correct problems like asymmetry or poor implant positioning, to correct sagging, to treat capsular contracture, etc. Many women worry about their surgery and wonder if their recovery will be similar to their original breast augmentation.

Recovery Is Typically Shorter and Less Painful

If you’ve had an original breast augmentation, you already know what to expect from a breast surgery. We’ve got good news for you… typically, recovery after breast implant revision surgery is shorter and less painful than your first surgery. The actual recovery time needed will vary depending on what needs to be done, but, in general, you will heal faster and with less pain. Dr. Sajjadian can give you personalized advice about what to expect from your recovery.

How Can I Minimize My Risk of Breast Revision Surgery?

The need for a future breast revision surgery is a possibility with any breast augmentation, but there are ways to reduce your risk. First and foremost, choose your surgeon carefully. A highly skilled surgeon with experience performing breast surgeries is much more likely to create a result you’ll love. They can also reduce your risk of complications and consult with you carefully to ensure the proper implant type and size. Dr. Sajjadian is one of only a few triple board-certified plastic surgeons. He specializes in breast surgeries and is well equipped to give you the best possible results.

Even with a highly skilled surgeon, some reasons for revision (implant rupture, capsular contracture, desire to change breast size, etc.) are not avoidable. If you do need revision surgery, make sure you work with a highly skilled surgeon. Revision surgeries require a knowledgeable surgeon to minimize the risk of complications and the need for additional surgeries.
