Revised Breast Augmentation

Overview of the surgery:
Revised breast augmentation is done if you have had a previous breast
implant surgery and desire a size change, a revision augmentation is
necessary. Additionally a revision is the only means of correcting problems
associated with rippling, implant rupture or excess scar formation termed
capsular contracture. Revisional breast surgery attempts to restore breasts
that are soft and symmetrical.
Revisional surgery usually consists of either removing the scar tissue that
inevitably forms around an implant, called a capsulectomy, or releasing the
scar tissue, called a capsulotomy. These two procedures attempt to recreate
the pocket or space where the implant sits and thereby restore a more
natural feel and appearance. In some cases a revision can be performed
through your previous scars but often time’s additional incisions are
necessary particularly if excess skin is to be removed at the same time.
Depending on how long your implants have been in place, it may be
advisable to replace them with a new set of implants.

Recovery Period:

for 4 weeks.
Preparation Prior To Surgery:
 Medical history assessment (any allergies, serious medical condition and all
medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical
examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during consultation.
 Avoid smoking   for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes
with circulation and will greatly affect healing process.
 Stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your
recovery period.
 Taking any medications should be avoided such as hormones, anticoagulants,
anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating
medical factors prior to surgery, and also avoid taking aspirin, anti-
inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
