More about Breast
During Your Consultation
During your breast implant revision consultation, Dr. Davis will assess the shape, volume, and symmetry of both breasts and take measurements. He will also asses if you have any signs of a capsular contracture or implant malposition. You will have an opportunity to discuss your goals and ideal result. You can also share any specific concerns and have all of your questions answered. If possible, it is very helpful to bring with you any records of prior surgeries and your current breast implant information (size, style, fill volume if saline).
Depending on what each individual patient needs to get the results that she wants, various different techniques are utilized. During surgery, Dr. Davis makes every effort to use the previous incision sites to reduce additional scarring, but there are times where additional incisions are necessary.
Common parts of implant revisions include changing implant size or switching from saline to silicone, adjusting implant position, removing scar tissue called capsular contracture, or completely removing the implants. It is very common to perform a lift with implant revision surgery. Dr. Davis will tailor the plan to you depending on your starting point and goals.
After surgery, you will be placed in a supportive bra and will return to the office the next day for us to check on you. Sometimes drains are needed as part of the healing process to make sure fluid does not collect around the new implant. We will continue to check on you as you recover, and are of course here and available any day if you have any questions or concerns.
Recovery from a breast revision varies depending on what you had done. This will be thoroughly explained to you at both your consultation and pre-operative appointment.
