While all patients hope that their primary breast surgery accomplishes the goals they intended, this isn’t always the case. It happens that some women change their minds about the size of their implants and wish to revise their procedures. Other times, the implants shift, rupture, or ripple, necessitating a revision treatment. Finally, complications may arise, such as capsular contracture or BII (Breast Implant Illness), which must be dealt with through an additional surgery.

Revision breast surgery is complex and delicate due to previous scar tissue formation, and it requires not only skill and experience but also an artist’s eye. Dr. Parker will listen to your concerns and create a personalized plan of action for resolving your aesthetic issues, giving you the breast appearance that you originally desired.

At LV Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we offer a free consultation to discuss this procedure. Dr. Parker and his staff believe you deserve our full attention, and he places no time limits on his free consultations. This allows him to answer all your questions, review your medical history, and evaluate the current condition of your implants.

What is breast revision?

Breast revision is a procedure to help correct issues that are the result of a primary breast augmentation. Sometimes the breast implant needs to be replaced, or the person is unhappy with their breast size or shape, or the breasts are suffering from a complication such as rupture, capsular contracture, bottoming out, or malposition. Dr. Brian J. Parker is an experienced, compassionate plastic surgeon providing among the best breast revision surgery in Las Vegas.

What are the common reasons to get breast revision surgery?

Reasons for undergoing our breast revision surgery include:

  • Change in breast volume or shape – Changes can occur in the breasts due to the aging process, pregnancy, nursing, or weight fluctuation.
  • Deflation of a saline implant – When a saline implant ruptures, the saltwater is absorbed into the body, and the implant deflates.
  • Leakage of a silicone implant – You may need an MRI to detect whether a silicone implant has ruptured or is leaking.
  • Breast implant exchange – In this case, the client desires to change the implant size or change the implant material (silicone, saline).
  • Capsular contracture – This is a common breast implant complication where the collagen and tissue surrounding the implants begin to harden and contract.
  • Implant coverage malfunction – When the breast tissue is too thin, it may not properly cover the breast implant.
  • Allergic reaction – In very rare cases, a woman’s body may reject the breast implants and form an infection.
  • Malposition – This occurs when an implant shifts outwards, inwards, downwards, or upwards, creating an awkward, undesirable appearance.
  • Asymmetry – Here, the breasts are not symmetrical to one another.
  • Symmastia – This is a type of malpositioning of implants where they drift inwards, creating a “uniboob.”
  • Bottoming out – This is a complication that occurs when the nipples drift too high on the breasts, and the breast crease sinks too low.
  • Double bubble – When the breasts drop down below the breast crease, it is called double bubble.
  • Implant removal – In this case, Dr. Parker removes the implants without replacing them.

What are the benefits of breast revision?

  • Relief from discomfort
  • Correction of implant complications
  • Repair of the breast pocket
  • Improved aesthetic appearance
  • Improved breast symmetry
  • A breast look in line with your wishes
  • Enhanced self-confidence
  • Natural-looking outcome

Who is an ideal candidate?

If you are unhappy with the results of your breast augmentation for any reason, don’t hesitate to undergo a consultation with Dr. Parker. There are many options for revising your treatment plan so that you are satisfied with how you look and you feel comfortable and at ease within your own body. Candidates for revision surgery should be non-smokers of sound mind and body, and they should have a realistic outlook towards their results, expecting improvement rather than perfection.

What can I expect from my recovery?

Your recovery time will be similar to the time it took to heal during your primary breast augmentation. This is typically between 6 and 8 weeks. You will need to wear a compression garment to help minimize swelling as before, and Dr. Parker will ensure you are comfortable with prescription pain medications.

We closely monitor the progress of our patients, with no limit on the post-operative care we provide – which is always performed by Dr. Parker himself. We are available for calls 24/7, and believe our patients deserve maximum care and attention after surgery.
