If you have undergone breast surgery and are unhappy with your results, Dr. Heil can expertly perform breast revision surgery to achieve the results you originally desired. With his compassionate, skillful approach, Dr. Heil delivers results that are balanced, youthful, and completely customized to your body and aesthetic goals. With breast revision surgery, Dr. Heil can reverse complications, remove breast implants, increase or decrease implant size, or address asymmetry.
Why Consider A Breast Revision With Dr. Brian Heil?
Breast revision requires a higher level of delicacy and precision than the primary breast procedure, as the surgeon must navigate tissues that have already been manipulated. As a board-certified plastic surgeon who has trained at some of the most prestigious institutions in the country, Dr. Heil possesses the technique necessary to provide the desired result. The entire purpose is to correct flaws in the original surgery, restoring your confidence.
Typically, patients pursue breast revision for the following reasons:
- Implant exchange
- Increase or decrease in implant size
- Removal of implant
- Switch from saline to silicone, or vice versa
- Capsular contracture
- Double bubble
- Implant rupture or leakage
- Implant asymmetry
- Implant deflation
Who Makes The Best Candidate For Breast Revision?
Ideal candidates for breast revision should be non-smokers, and of sound mind and body with no significant health issues. Patients who can benefit from breast revision include those who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts following a prior breast surgery. In such cases, patients are typically seeking improvement in implant appearance, removal of implants, or exchange of implants.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Heil will discuss expectations, allowing you to understand what can be accomplished through breast revision surgery. It is important that the two of you are in complete understanding before proceeding with surgery.
What Should I Expect During My Recovery From Breast Revision?
Following breast revision, the initial recovery period lasts 7-10 days. During this time, you will experience soreness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness. Our office will provide you with proper pain medications as well as a full list of aftercare instructions to help you navigate the recovery process. Most notably, it is paramount to avoid heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for 4-6 weeks following surgery, while also taking care to avoid strain on the chest in any context.
What Is The Cost Of Breast Revision?
Breast revision is highly customized to each patient. For this reason, the cost will vary from patient to patient, based upon your circumstances and goals. During your initial consultation, Dr. Heil will perform a comprehensive exam and listen to your wishes, after which our office will provide a quote for services. At this time, we will be happy to help with financing options to help you get the desired treatment with no delay.
