Breast Augmentation Revision FAQs

What is breast augmentation revision surgery?

Breast augmentation revision, also called breast implant revision, offers a solution for women who have undergone breast augmentation but are not completely satisfied with their results. Dr. Timothy Janiga will consult with you to ensure that he understands your desires and he will provide a realistic expectation for each patient based on their consultation.

Depending on your specific case, this procedure can include the complete removal and replacement of your current breast implants, whether of the same or different size and type as well as the specific placement in order to adjust the shape of the breasts.

How is this procedure performed?

Breast augmentation revisions are performed in an outpatient surgery center under general anesthetic. They generally involve exchanging the implants and reshaping the breasts. Access to the implant is through the previously placed incision; the pocket is then modified and the new implant is placed to create the shape and size desired.

How long does breast augmentation revision surgery take?

This procedure generally takes one hour with another hour of recovery time before going home.

How long is recovery?

Swelling and minimal bruising in the area may last up to three weeks. Returning to work can be expected within five to seven days. Full results are expected within three to six months.

What are typical results?

Typical breast augmentation revision results include a more desired size and shape of the breasts to fit your personal preferences and desired self-image. During your initial consultation, Dr. Timothy Janiga will discuss with you all the options available and ensure that you have a realistic expectation of what your personal outcome will be after the surgery. Dr. Timothy Janiga is committed to providing you the results you desire with full satisfaction.
