Breast Implant Revision
Breast implant surgery (or breast augmentation) is an extremely popular and highly personalizable procedure for enhancing the appearance of a woman’s breasts. At some point following the initial surgery, you may need or choose to have your implants replaced or removed through a breast revision procedure. Whether you’re experiencing complications with previous breast implants, needing to replace older breast implants, or are simply wanting to update a previous surgery for a look that matches who you are today, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will work with you to achieve a result that is uniquely you.
What is breast implant revision surgery?
After breast augmentation surgery, you may need to undergo a breast revision surgery at some point. There are a wide variety of reasons why a breast implant revision or implant exchange may be necessary.
Unfortunately, some women experience breast augmentation results that are not what they had in mind and are unhappy with the outcome. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini is a board certified cosmetic surgeon with extensive experience in cosmetic breast enhancement and a passion for providing her patients with results thoughtfully personalized to their unique goals and body. A breast implant revision surgery at New Look New Life can help give you the breast augmentation results you have always wanted for yourself.
For some women, it may simply be a case of revising a previous surgery in order to achieve results that better match the woman you are today. This could be to address changes that have occured with your body as you’ve gotten older (such as a loss of volume or changes in skin elasticity) or maybe the size of implant you chose years ago for your initial breast augmentation is no longer what you’re wanting for your body today.
Other women may be looking to undergo an implant exchange in order to upgrade to a newer type of implant that may not have been available during their initial surgery. Today, there are a wide variety of implant shapes, sizes, and textures that allow for an impressive level of personalization through breast enhancement.
In other cases, an implant exchange may be required to address complications such as a leak or rupture, or to replace an older implant to prevent complications from occurring. It’s important to remember that breast implants, while long-lasting, are not designed to last forever and likely will need to be replaced or removed as you get older.
The exact steps of your revision surgery will depend on your unique circumstances and any complications you may be experiencing with your prior surgery, as well as your goals for your revision procedure. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will discuss the various options available to you during your private consultation.
Am I a good candidate for breast revision surgery?
A breast implant revision or exchange is a great and often necessary procedure for women experiencing any of the above concerns. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini can speak with you about any questions or concerns you may have about breast revision surgery, and work together to create a procedure plan designed to provide you with a beautiful outcome that is fully unique to you.
What to expect during your breast revision recovery
The recovery period following your breast revision surgery in most circumstances is much easier than the initial breast augmentation. However, there will likely be some differences based on the specific steps of your revision surgery with Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini.
Following your procedure, it is important to get plenty of rest and avoid any strenuous activity. A light surgical bra will be provided to you for support while you are healing. You should be able to return to work within a few days of surgery and can likely resume exercise in about 7-10 days. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will provide you with her own personal cell number to answer any questions or concerns you may have while healing from surgery.
