Correct Your Unsatisfactory Breast Augmentation With Breast Revision in Thousand Oaks

Are you unhappy with the aesthetic results of a previous breast augmentation procedure? Although breast augmentation surgery leaves most patients satisfied, there are exceptions, and you shouldn’t be stuck with breast implants that you don’t love. It’s also possible to experience certain complications with your implants after breast augmentation, such as rippling, shifted position, or capsular contracture (the hardening of scar tissue around the implant). At Elevate Plastic Surgery, Dr. Rahgozar offers breast revision surgery to help women correct various breast implant-related problems.

What Is Breast Revision?

Breast revision is a surgical procedure performed primarily to correct the aesthetic results of a previous breast augmentation. For example, many women choose to undergo breast revision when they aren’t satisfied with the size, shape, or type of their breast implants. Breast revision can also be used to address certain complications that can take place with breast implants.

Benefits of Breast Revision

If you aren’t happy with the way your breast augmentation procedure turned out, breast revision can potentially offer all of the following benefits:

  • Improved breast size, shape, and/or symmetry
  • Allows you to switch to a different type of breast implant
  • Correction of breast implant complications, such as rippling, capsular contracture, and
  • shifted implant position
  • Enhanced bodily proportions
  • Increased wardrobe options
  • Fully customizable results
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Improved self-confidence

What to Expect During Your Breast Revision Surgery

Sitting down for a private consultation with Dr. Rahgozar is an important first step if you’re considering breast revision surgery. During this meeting, the doctor will need to know your reason for pursuing the procedure, including the specific issues you want to have addressed with your breast implants and any complications you’ve been experiencing. By understanding the problems you’re having and your specific aesthetic goals, Dr. Rahgozar will be able to curate a personalized treatment plan that will ensure satisfactory results.

Your breast revision procedure will likely be performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. To begin, Dr. Rahgozar will make small incisions either around your areolas, along the natural creases of your breasts, or under your arms. If possible, he will use the original incisions from your breast augmentation to prevent additional scarring. The specific details of the surgery will depend on your unique treatment plan.

For example, Dr. Rahgozar may replace your current breast implants with new, customized implants of a different size, type, or shape. He may also lift or adjust the position of your implants, tighten your breast pockets with sutures, and/or remove unwanted breast tissue. Once he has finished making your desired changes, he’ll close your incisions with sutures and bandage the treatment area. You’ll then need to be monitored for a couple of hours, but after that, a friend or family member can drive you home.

Recovering From Your Breast Revision Procedure

Your recovery after your breast revision procedure should be very similar to the recovery period after your initial breast augmentation. You may experience mild bruising, soreness, or swelling, and you’ll likely be advised to wear a surgical support bra for a few weeks. You can ensure a smooth healing process by getting lots of rest, staying hydrated, and taking light walks around the house to keep your blood flowing.

You’ll likely be able to go back to work and gradually resume your normal routine after approximately one week. However, you’ll want to hold off on heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for at least three to four weeks.
