What is Breast Implant Revision

Over time, breast implants can change shape or size, and the overlying breast tissue can also change, creating an appearance or feel to the breast that is less desirable than the original result. Breast implant revision replaces old breast implants with new implants. Often the goal is also to change or improve the appearance of the breasts while updating the implant material, which can include:

  • A concurrent breast lift or reduction
  • Reshaping the breast implant pocket to reposition the implant on the chest
  • Either increasing or decreasing the size, shape, or style of the breast implant

Breast implant revision is not a standard or routine procedure and needs to be tailored specifically to the patient’s goals and desires. Therefore, this surgery should be performed by a plastic surgeon who is well-trained and experienced in all types of breast surgery, like Dr. Nikfarjam and Dr. Goulart. He will listen to the patient’s goals and desires and will develop a surgical plan specifically to address all of the issues at the time of surgery. 

What are the benefits of Breast Implant Revision?

The benefits of a breast implant revision can be impactful long-term, and benefit patients in a number of ways: 

  • The use of updated implant materials 
  • Reshape or reposition the breast to look more natural
  • Improve your appearance
  • Improve your self-esteem
  • Prevent health problems from outdated implant materials

Each breast implant revision is unique and personal and must be designed in a way that benefits you. The benefits and reasons for getting this procedure can also depend on the type of material initially used, and how long ago your first implant surgery was. 

Who are the best candidates for the Breast Implant Revision procedure?

The best candidates for breast implant revision in Long Island and NYC are primarily patients who have existing breast implants they want to update and improve. You might also be a great candidate if you have outdated and potentially harmful implants that were placed many years ago, and now need to be replaced with material that is safer for your body. 

In general, you may be a good breast implant revision candidate if:

  • You are unhappy with the size, shape, or appearance of your breast implants
  • You are concerned about the integrity or condition of your implants
  • You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You are a nonsmoker

If you’re considering surgery, spend some time reviewing breast revisionary surgery photos and learning about what to expect. Preparation ahead of time will help you have reasonable and realistic expectations.

Breast Implant Revision first steps

The first step to getting breast implant revision in Long Island is to schedule a consultation. During this session, our surgeons will explain what breast implant revision involves. They will assess your desired outcomes and determine whether you are the right candidate for this procedure. Your consultation session is also your opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions you have. Upon completion of the assessment,  the surgeon will be able to confirm the price for your surgery. 

What to expect on the day of Breast Implant Revision surgery

Before a breast implant revision surgery, your surgeon may prep you for the procedure by asking you to fast for a certain amount of time or avoid certain medications such as blood thinners. It is important to follow all pre-operative instructions precisely, ensuring a smooth surgery and recovery process. 

On the day of your appointment, before beginning the procedure, the surgeon will walk you through the procedure explaining the techniques being used, as discussed in your consultation. 

The first step will be to administer a type of anesthesia to numb the area and minimize discomfort. 

Step two is making the incision on the breasts. The type of incision used will vary depending upon the type of procedures that will be performed. 

The existing implants will be taken out, and new ones put in their place. The surgeon will also make adjustments to the placement, and size of your breasts if this is what you discussed beforehand. 

Once the new implants are in place, the final step is to close the incision using sutures. 

As the surgeon completes the procedure, you will be taken into a recovery room while the anesthesia wears off. 

We advise every breast implant revision patient to arrange for transportation to and from the practice on the day of their appointment. 

Breast Implant Revision recovery

Following your surgery, gauze dressings or bandages may be applied to your incisions. Depending on the details of your surgery, you may or may not be placed in a support bra or other type of garment. In some cases, a small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect.

Before leaving our practice, Dr. Nikfarjam and his medical team will carefully go over all your recovery steps and instructions, so you know what to expect. Some of the instructions may include: 

  • Keeping the wound clean at home
  • Type of medications needed to manage pain
  • Activities to avoid in the immediate aftermath
  • Clothing to avoid while in the healing stage
  • What to look out for on your wound each day
  • When to schedule your follow-up appointments. 

You can expect to see swelling and some pain in the initial days and weeks of your recovery. Healing will continue for several weeks as swelling decreases, and it can take up to a couple of months to be completely healed. 

How much does Breast Implant Revision cost in Long Island, NY?

The cost of Breast Implant Revision in Long Island or NYC will vary, depending on the following factors which include your original implants that are going to be revised, the type of incision needed in your procedure, the size and placement adjustment of your new implants, and how long the surgery will take based on the complexity of each case.

When you book a consultation at New You, your surgeon will assess your needs and create a plan that is designed specifically for you. With that assessment, we will be able to tell you the price you can expect to pay on the day of your surgery. We offer financing for all our patients.
