Following an initial breast procedure, breast revision surgery may be necessary at some point for a variety of reasons. Breast revision surgery can be performed to exchange or upgrade breast implants, remove implants, resolve implant-related issues such as capsular contracture or rupture, correct asymmetries, help camouflage irregularities from breast reconstruction and more. In most cases, a secondary breast surgery is performed using general anesthesia. The overall recovery varies depending on the revision type. Breast implant revision procedures can address multiple concerns simultaneously during the same procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Shock will work closely with you and help you identify and develop a surgical plan based on your concerns.
Every procedure will utilize different techniques to meet each patient’s unique needs and cosmetic goals.
