Breast revision is a second surgical procedure for changing some aspect of a primary breast surgery, including breast augmentation. Undoubtedly, when you discussed breast augmentation surgery with your surgeon prior to the procedure, it was explained that a second procedure and replacement of implants would be necessary at some point. Dr. Sadrian provides Breast Revision in San Diego for patients in need of a secondary breast surgery. A double-board certified plastic surgeon with a passion for providing exceptional results, he can help you plan a procedure that allows you to embrace your most beautiful physique anew.
Warranties on most breast implants are typically 10 years. The risks after that include the possibility of their deflating or rupturing—although many women have had them for longer, with no problems whatsoever.
There are other reasons a patient may need to undergo breast revision surgery. These may include dissatisfaction with some aspect of the breasts. Sometimes patients who have chosen smaller implants realize that their new breasts are simply not large enough. Going into the surgery, many women are concerned that their breasts will be too big, but once the post-operative swelling goes down and they have adjusted to the new breasts, they sometimes wish they had gotten larger implants.
Among the other reasons to have our San Diego Breast Revision surgery are the following:

Before your Breast Revision San Diego patients will spend ample time consulting with Dr. Sadrian to plan an approach that will deliver the precise results you are seeking. The details of the procedure will depend on the reason behind the need for breast revision surgery. The second surgery may be similar in length and recovery to the first surgery, and you can expect a similar recovery time.
The timeline for seeing the final results of a Breast Revision can vary. Initial changes are often noticeable immediately after the procedure, but the complete outcome becomes more apparent over time as the body heals. In the first few weeks, you might experience some swelling and bruising, which is a natural part of the healing process.
As your body recovers, these effects gradually diminish, offering a clearer view of the final outcome. On average, it takes about two to three months for most of the swelling to subside and for the new implants to settle into their intended position. However, individual factors can influence this timeline, and for some individuals, it might take up to six months or more for the final results to fully develop. Regular follow-up appointments will ensure your progress is on track and provide the guidance you need for a successful outcome. Your patience during this period will contribute to achieving the best and most satisfying results from your Breast Revision surgery.
We will give you detailed aftercare instructions and check your healing at follow-up visits after your Breast Revision procedure. In general, a smooth recovery can be achieved by following these steps. Rest and avoid strenuous activities for the first few weeks. Manage discomfort with prescribed pain medications. Wear a supportive bra to aid healing. Attend follow-up appointments to monitor progress. Gentle massages can help implants settle naturally. Over two to three months, swelling subsides, revealing final results. Protect incisions from sun exposure. Prioritize a balanced diet for optimal healing. Share any concerns with your healthcare provider. With diligent aftercare, you'll enjoy the best outcome, embracing your enhanced confidence and refined appearance.
If you have concerns about Breast Revision, we offer answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about the procedure.
Symmastia is a condition in which the breasts cross the midline of the body and converge; there is no cleavage. It may be congenital or caused by surgical process. It is more likely to occur in women with thinner breast tissue.
Bottoming out occurs when the implant slides down along the chest cavity. The result is that the fullness of the implant is abnormally low, and the nipple is abnormally high in relation to it. There are several different surgical options for its correction, including the use of mesh-like substances for support & contour, which would be part of your breast revision procedure in San Diego & La Jolla.
