About Breast Revision Surgery
Over time, breast implants can rupture or become deflated, or breast augmentation patients may desire a change in the overall shape or size of their implant. Regardless of the reason, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, can perform a second surgery that involves removing the implants altogether or replacing the existing ones with newer implants. Patients can consult with Dr. Meger at his private practice in Phoenix, AZ to discuss their desires and goals prior to the surgery, even if he was not the surgeon who performed the initial augmentation procedure. Breast revision surgery can be an effective way to produce more aesthetically pleasing, shapely breasts. Patients can schedule a consultation today at G. Robert Meger, M.D. P.C. to find out more about a breast revision procedure.
Breast revision surgery may be needed due to a breast augmentation procedure that did not turn out well, an implant that is malfunctioning, or for a simple change of aesthetics. Women can be candidates for this procedure if they are experiencing any of the following:
- A desire to have a different breast size
- A desire to have the implants removed for medical or personal reasons
- Implant rupture
- Scarring or capsular contracture
- Breast rippling or other irregularities

What to Expect
Breast revision surgery is usually very similar to the initial breast augmentation surgery, but it depends on the surgical case and what is being addressed. For women who are getting a smaller size or complete removal, a breast lift may be necessary to correct loose skin. For other patients who have scar tissue, rippling, or an implant rupture, a reconstructive process will be performed to prevent a reoccurrence. Our plastic surgeon will address the issue at hand and resolve the problem with a realistic outcome discussed prior to treatment. Patients should keep in mind that more complex procedures will yield a longer recovery time.
Breast revision patients will again be educated on how to properly care for the surgical incision points and the best skincare treatments to reduce scarring. There will also be significant bruising and swelling for the first couple of weeks. Patients should limit strenuous exercise but still get up and move around to promote healing and blood circulation. Most patients recover in 4 – 6 weeks and are extremely happy with their breast revision results.
