Breast Revision In Beverly Hills

Breast revision in Beverly Hills allows patients who have experienced changes in shape and volume due to aging, life experiences, and gravity to reclaim the aesthetic they want. Having breast surgery should be an empowering experience that instills confidence and a sense of empowerment. However, the results may not always turn out the way a patient expects. This is particularly true in cases where the surgeon was inexperienced or unqualified for the surgery. Contact Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc to learn more about how we help patients achieve their goals with personalized breast implant revision.


What Is Breast Revision?

If your previous breast procedure failed to live up to your goals, or gravity and life experiences have once again changed your breasts, then breast revision is the means to address this. Likewise, the procedure can benefit those who have experienced complications or deterioration of results. That is, a revision surgery corrects any imperfections or problems from a patient’s first breast procedure (breast lift or augmentation). From replacing breast implants to improving breast shape, revision allows you to fully control your results.

Some of the key reasons patients may need a revision procedure include:

  • Capsular contracture (formation of scar tissue around the breast implant)
  • Replacing a ruptured implant
  • Correcting a double bubble deformity (when your breast implant sits below the inframammary crease)
  • Change out breast implants for a different implant size or type (e.g., change saline implants for silicone implants)
  • Improve breast implant position
  • Improve results following breast reconstructive surgery

Benefits of Breast Revision

  • Match your results to your expectations

  • Restore self-confidence

  • Improve your comfort level with your body

  • Address complications of a previous procedure

Dr. Chiu is among the best plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. He will evaluate your concerns and body type to determine the best options to achieve your breast revision goals.

Is Breast Revision Right for Me?

Choosing to have a second procedure can be a source of significant stress for many patients. It is important to truly feel that breast revision is right for you before proceeding. The best first step to take is to set up a consultation with Dr. Chiu to discuss your situation. The consultation process requires no commitment. Instead, it is a confidential discussion with a double board-certified plastic surgeon to explore your options. You will have the opportunity to clarify your goals and expectations, and Dr. Chiu can provide comprehensive information about the best paths forward.

Additionally, a good candidate for breast revision will be:

  • Non-smoking before and after surgery
  • In overall good health
  • Have healthy and realistic goals

Overview of a Typical Breast Revision Procedure

Initial Consultation

First, you meet with Dr. Chiu to go over your situation and build a personalized treatment plan. He works closely with patients to create tailored results that align with patient expectations.

Preparing for the Procedure

Dr. Chiu will provide you with preparation instructions according to your health and procedure plan. These can include tasks such as:

  • Stopping certain medications
  • Avoiding any tobacco products
  • Obtaining necessary bloodwork or lab tests
  • Arranging for someone to drive you home after surgery

Day of the Procedure

Breast revision tends to be more complex than the patient’s original breast lift or breast augmentation procedure. This is because the procedure must not only reverse previous changes but create new improvements. Additionally, patients may require revision for one or both breasts. Because of this, the procedure duration can vary, typically from 1 to 4 hours. Patients will receive general anesthesia to allow for total comfort. In some cases involving only minor changes, patients may need only local anesthesia.

Recovering from Your Breast Revision

After your surgery, you can return home the same day following a brief wait after the procedure. The overall recovery experience can vary, but most patients will experience the following:

  • The First Week

    You will need to take time off from work and any other activities. Particularly in revision surgery, proper rest and healing are essential to seeing results. Be sure to follow your post-procedure instructions and care for the surgical sites well. Swelling and bruising are normal. You may need to wear a compression garment to aid in healing.

  • The Second Week

    Patients may need to continue with time off work, though generally can return to nonstrenuous work by the end of the week. Continue to care for your breasts as swelling and bruising gradually fade. Dr. Chiu typically sees patients for a follow-up appointment around this time.

  • Third to Fourth Weeks

    You may resume minor activity, such as short walks. But continue to stay away from anything strenuous, particularly anything involving the chest muscles. Swelling and bruising should have faded, with only residual swelling left to resolve.

  • Beyond

    You can make a gradual return to your full routine, including strenuous activity, by around the eighth week. However, listen to your body and avoid pushing it beyond its limits until fully healed.

What Are the Results Like?

When working with a qualified surgeon, patients can expect to see optimal outcomes for breast revision surgery in Beverly Hills. Your initial results should be visible after about 2 weeks once the majority of swelling fades. Your final results should be apparent after a few months, as residual swelling will take time to fade. While this swelling is not really noticeable, it does need to fade before your breasts can settle into their final appearance. Following your post-procedure instructions is essential for seeing the best outcome with results that can last for years.
