Breast Revision Baton Rouge

When the results of breast augmentation do not achieve a patient’s goals, the patient can schedule a corrective procedure called breast revision. We provide breast revision in Baton Rouge to solve a number of issues, including implant rupture, capsular contracture, and implant malposition.

Can Breast Revision Help Me?

Patients typically seek out breast revision, also known as revision breast augmentation, for one of three reasons: unhappiness with their results, correction of new aesthetic problems, or correction of new medical issues.

When a patient is unhappy with the results of their initial breast augmentation, they are usually looking to change the size of their breasts or the way their breasts feel to the touch. This necessitates removing the current implants and putting in new ones that are of a different size or type. With saline implants, size changes may be performed without implant replacement.

When a patient comes in for correction of new aesthetic problems, these problems can be anything from implant malposition to breast asymmetry to rippling in the breast skin. These may or may not require implant replacement.

When a patient comes in for correction of new medical issues, these typically require removal of the implant. These can be the result of a ruptured silicone implant in cases where its contents has escaped into the scar-tissue capsule or has escaped outside of the capsule.

The Procedure

Generally, whenever revision breast augmentation is being performed, the incisions used for the original breast augmentation will be used for the revision surgery. This avoids creation of new post-surgical marks.

The exact details of your breast revision surgery will depend on the issues that are being corrected and the techniques chosen to correct them. Anesthesia will always be administered at the start of the surgery to ensure patient comfort throughout.

The implant may be removed or repositioned, and the implant capsule may also be removed or altered. Once the procedure is complete, the incisions are closed with sutures.


The Breast Revision Healing Process

During revision breast augmentation, patients must make sure to follow their surgeon’s post-surgical care directions diligently. This will ensure a lessened risk of complications and will lead to a shorter and more comfortable healing process.

Generally, breast revision recovery is similar to primary breast augmentation recovery. Incisions will heal, bruising and swelling will fade in time, and it will be necessary to take time off from work. The details will vary depending on the specific techniques used.

Breast Revision Cost

Breast revision cost is dependent on factors such as the types of issues being addressed, the techniques being used, and the overall time the procedure takes. If new implants are required, implant price will also be a factor. Financing is available through the CareCredit program to help patients pay for their breast revision procedure.
