Breast implants involve a relatively simple surgical procedure. However, if all details involved in this operation are not given full consideration, the procedure can introduce various postoperative problems that may require a breast implant revision. In order to remedy these issues, skilled and Board Certified plastic surgeons such as Dr. Wirth are called upon to perform the revision of a previous breast augmentation.
After making a thorough and accurate diagnosis of the botched, improperly performed or damaged breast surgery, a variety of techniques are used to correct a patient’s concerns and problems related to breast implants.
Candidates For Breast Augmentation Revision
Any generally healthy woman who has experienced a complication or concern with a previous breast enhancement makes a strong candidate for revision. Some of the more common reasons include:
- Problems with breast implant position
- Problems with patient’s tissue
- Implant malfunctions
- Change in preferences
- Replacement of implants
When considering a revision, you will work closely with Dr. Garrett A. Wirth to evaluate the outcome of your previous breast surgery. If a revision is likely to help you meet your unique health and body image goals, such a procedure may be a great option.
How Revision Works
Techniques for an effective breast augmentation revision depend on the specific and unique difficulties you face after receiving a botched or improperly executed breast augmentation. Surgery may involve replacement of implants, reinforcement of tissue, or correction of a complication. Given the surgical nature of such a procedure, anesthesia will be used to reduce pain and discomfort.
In order for your breast enhancement correction to be effective, you must work closely with Dr. Wirth to identify all problems arising from your original breast enhancement and to strategize the type of operation that will yield the best corrective results.
What Happens After Revision?
Immediately following your procedure, expect swelling, pain, and irritation at incision sites. At the close of the operation, all incisions will be sutured and properly dressed. You may also be given an elastic bandage or support bra to help reduce swelling and to support the breasts. As with any surgery, be sure to follow all directions for postoperative care provided by Dr. Wirth and his team.
