Breast Revision

Your doctor or plastic surgeon might recommend a breast implant revision surgery to reduce that risk (or to correct an implant that is experiencing difficulties).

When it comes to the body, nothing is permanent - and that includes breast augmentation.

Time and environment are constant forces of change, and even the best initial surgery results may wind up needing a “refresh” eventually. Maybe the implants you got in your twenties no longer suit your appearance the way they once did.

Maybe you’ve developed an issue with the implant (capsular contracture and ruptures do happen), or maybe your first augmentation falls into the “botched boob job” category and you want it fixed. Whatever your reason, as Austin’s best plastic surgeon for breast implant revisions, Dr. Whitfield can help.

Why Breast Revision?

Even if the implants are still good, there are plenty of reasons to want a change. The breasts you received a decade ago may no longer fit your look or lifestyle. You could have picked up a new hobby or sport and now find them cumbersome. Time, breastfeeding, weight gain, or loss all impact the skin and tissues around the breast, which can change the overall look of the implants in a way you find less appealing. Shifting nipple placement is another common issue among some implant recipients. Dr. Whitfield has treatment options for each of these concerns and will go over your questions regarding treatment options during your consultation.

What Can Breast Revision Surgery Correct?

Breast revision surgery is a versatile, customizable procedure that can resolve a wide range of breast augmentation surgery issues, including:

  • Pain
  • Sagging
  • Breast asymmetry
  • Breast implant rupture
  • Aging breast implants
  • Breast implant capsular contracture
  • Size issues (breast implants too large or too small)
  • Symmastia (breasts merging across the breast bone)

Why Choose Dr. Robert Whitfield for Breast Implant Revision?

It is important that your breast revision is performed by a highly-skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon with considerable experience in breast surgery. Because breast tissue is more difficult to revise after primary surgery, breast revision surgery requires more skill and surgical planning than initial surgery.

Austin plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Whitfield is a widely-recognized expert in breast revision surgery. This experience comes from years of reconstructing breasts following mastectomies, often due to breast cancer. Dr. Whitfield has been voted one of Austin’s Top Doctors by Texas Monthly Magazine and has received numerous awards for his work. You can feel confident that Dr. Whitfield will listen to your problem and put you on the best path to resolution through his thorough and compassionate approach to surgery.

Your Breast Implant Revision Surgery

During your initial consultation with Dr. Whitfield, he will listen to your concerns and conduct a comprehensive physical exam of the area. Dr. Whitfield believes your safety and your results are both important and he keeps both in mind when discussing your condition and your treatment options. Dr. Whitfield’s standard practice includes a review of the reports of your original surgery. Using all of this data, Dr. Whitfield will develop treatment options for you that will prioritize your long-term health and safety while delivering you the best possible results.

What is recovery from breast revision like?

Breast revision surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgery center. While most patients don’t have to spend the night in the hospital, it is important to arrange a ride home following the surgery, as the combination of anesthesia and surgery will prevent you from being able to drive. Recovery from breast implant revision may take longer than the initial surgery, depending on what changes were specified in the revision.

You may need a week or two to return to normal activities following a simple implant exchange, whereas a more extensive revision (like a breast lift and implant replacement) might require two to four weeks of recovery. Dr. Whitfield will let you know more about what you can expect in terms of recovery time during your initial consultation, so you will have plenty of time to make arrangements to take the appropriate time off work before your surgery.
