What Is Breast Revision Surgery?
Breast augmentation is one of the most effective cosmetic surgeries in America, and in the majority of cases, it provides beautiful results. Unfortunately, sometimes a woman can feel unhappy with the appearance of her breasts and may need breast revision surgery. Please keep in mind that not all breast revisions happen because of practitioner error. While few breast augmentations do end with a poor outcome, some women desire a larger or smaller implant, have a visible irregularity, or prefer to have the implant corrected or taken out. Additionally, some women require revision surgery for a particular health condition. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang will create a detailed surgical plan that aligns with your needs.

Who is A Candidate For Breast Revision Surgery?

During your consultation, he will listen to your goals or concerns and create a unique surgical plan.

- Bottoming out
- Breast drooping
- Implant rippling

What to Expect During BREAST REVISION SURGERY
During your consultation appointment with Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang, he will get to know your cosmetic ideal and the reasons behind your current dissatisfaction with the existing implants. The motivation behind your breast revision might change the approach he takes to your surgery. However, in general, Dr. Mang will begin with an incision to excise the existing implants. Any apparent scar tissue will also be removed to create as smooth of a healing process as possible. Then, Dr. Mang will insert the new implant that addresses your goals as far as shape, size, and placement. You may wish to consider combining your breast revision with a breast lift if your new implants are smaller in size.
How Long is Recovery After BREAST REVISION SURGERY?
After your procedure and a brief observation, you can go home to begin your recovery. The overall recovery period will depend on the complexity of your surgery. Any type of revision surgery that uses complex revision techniques will require a longer recovery time, which can last up to several months. You should begin to see your results once the bruising and swelling subsides. Dr. Mang or a member of his team will discuss how to care for your incisions and provide detailed aftercare instructions. You should attend all of your follow-up appointments so Dr. Mang can ensure you are properly recovering.
Breast Revision surgery FAQs

To help make your surgery affordable, Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery accepts several payments and we can help you find low-interest financing.
What if Dr. Mang wasn't my original surgeon?
Dr. Mang can perform your revision surgery even if he was not your original surgeon. Revision surgery is sometimes more difficult than augmentation surgery if you want dramatic changes or have problems, so it is important to find a plastic surgeon like Dr. Mang who has experience and advanced training in breast surgery. Dr. Mang also encourages his patients to come back to Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery for breast revision surgery after their implant surgery if they have an issue or would like new implants.
What about loose skin?
If you are getting your implants removed or are changing to a significantly smaller size of implants, you may need to have excess skin removed during your surgery. After hearing your goals and assessing your current implants, Dr. Mang can discuss the need for a breast lift to remove loose skin. If you lose a lot of weight, become pregnant, or breastfeed after augmentation surgery, a revision with a lift gives you better results.
