Breast Revision involves revisiting previous breast augmentation. It includes several procedures designed to correct uneven or asymmetrical breasts, genetic conditions, concerns stemming from prior, poor surgery or medical complications linked to past breast surgery.*
Breast revision surgery can be relatively simple or highly complex. The approach taken will depend upon your personal circumstances. Because it is not a standard or routine procedure, Dr Page tailors each procedure specifically to your goals and desires.
The following concerns are addressed through breast revision surgery:
- Asymmetrical breasts caused by uneven breast implants, hardening or deflation in an implant, or capsular contracture
- Dissatisfaction with the size or appearance of current implants.
- Breast pain as a result of defective implants
- Malpositioned implants that appear unnatural
- Loss of nipple sensation or breast discomfort
- Medically defective implants that are or may cause medical complications**
- Removal of breast implants to improve the appearance of natural breasts
Overtime, breast implants can alter shape or size and overlying breast tissue can also change, causing the appearance and feel in the breasts to alter. Breast revision surgery can resolve these concerns, resulting in the desired size and feel, improved skin tone, and less drooping with long-lasting results.
Breast revision surgery is performed in a fully accredited hospital under a general anaesthetic with overnight observation if required. Recovery time and conditions depend on the type of surgery performed, and Dr Page always does his best to minimise scarring following any procedure.
*Any dissatisfaction with a breast augmentation performed within the past six months in Australia or abroad by another surgeon, should be approached with them first. If you are experiencing a complication, infection, or wound breakdown, please get in touch with your original surgeon. Otherwise, please consult your GP or go to your nearest hospital emergency department.
**There is no evidence that the implants currently in use cause breast cancer or other concerns, such as Breast Implant Associated-Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) or breast implant illness. Breast implants do not interfere with breastfeeding.
