Breast revision surgery by a specialist plastic and reconstructive surgeon

If you have had breast surgery in the past, and you now have concerns about the surgical result, then any further surgery is considered revisional surgery.

Some of the reasons that people have revisional surgery include:

  • Pain or discomfort
  • Aesthetic concerns
  • Asymmetry
  • Changes in attitudes towards their body compounded by
    • Weight changes
    • Ageing
    • Breastfeeding
  • Complications of breast implants such as
    • Rupture
    • Displacement
    • Capsular contracture

These problems can affect you physically and emotionally. The goals of revisional surgery are to address the problems that are acutely bothering you about your breasts.

The techniques employed in revisional surgery are dependent on the problem.

It is important that you see a surgeon with all the skills required to tackle any issue that you may have with your previous breast surgery. Some of the techniques that are used in revisional breast surgery include:

  • Removing and replacing breast implants
  • Breast lift
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast fat grafting
  • Breast flap reconstruction
  • Scar revisions

Most commonly, a combination of these techniques is required. Although for most patients, the result is achievable in one stage. For some, more than one stage of surgery is required.
