If you have had a previous breast augmentation that failed to satisfy your cosmetic goals, a breast revision may be your solution. With a breast revision at Plastic Surgery Consultants, patients can get the results they’ve always wanted. We welcome patients from Lexington County, Richland County, and the neighboring communities of South Carolina.
What is a Breast Revision?
A breast revision is a treatment designed to correct the mistakes or unsatisfactory results of a previous breast augmentation. All too often, women undergo breast augmentation treatments that are performed by individuals who aren’t entirely qualified or don’t take the time necessary to produce quality results. Unfortunately, this means that women are left with breast implants that don’t match the results they originally wanted. In some cases, older implants can rupture, causing the need for a revision. Whatever your reason is for considering a breast revision, Dr. Wassermann of Plastic Surgery Consultants can help correct your previous breast augmentation and give you long-lasting results that you’ll be proud of.
What is a Breast Implant Exchange?
A breast implant exchange is performed when old breast implants are removed and new ones are inserted in their place. Patients may do this if they are looking to have smaller or larger implants or if there is some other issue with the implants they currently have. Fortunately, most implants can be removed the same way they were inserted, eliminating additional scarring from developing after treatment.
How is a Breast Revision Performed?
A breast revision treatment is performed with the aid of anesthesia to ensure that each patient remains entirely comfortable during their surgery. Usually, the incisions from your initial breast augmentation can be used to perform your breast revision, preventing any additional scarring from occurring. After incisions are made, the old breast implants are removed and replaced with new ones that will better fit your cosmetic goals. Then, the incisions are closed and treatment is complete. This treatment can take up to two hours, depending on the desired results.
How is Recovery Following a Breast Revision Surgery?
The recovery following a breast revision is not unlike that of an initial breast augmentation. Dr. Wassermann’s extensive experience and careful treatment plans allow most breast revision patients to enjoy a rapid recovery and return to non-strenuous activities in one week. After your treatment, Dr. Wassermann will give your more specific instructions regarding recovery.
How Much Does a Breast Revision Cost?
The cost of your breast revision will vary depending on your specific treatment goals. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Wassermann. During your consultation, you will work with Dr. Wassermann to develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment.
