Are You a Candidate?

There are many different reasons why you might consider breast revision surgery:

  • You want to trade your current implants for a different size or shape
  • You want to switch from saline to silicone implants or vice versa
  • Your current implant has ruptured, requiring replacement
  • Scar tissue has tightened around your implants, known as capsular contracture
  • You have developed an asymmetry since your initial surgery
  • The nipple has changed position as the implant pulls the breast downward
  • Your breasts have begun to sag or droop, necessitating a lift procedure

In some cases, a simple implant exchange will suffice, but other women may require a more elaborate surgery to address issues and produce the desired results. Dr. Saad has pioneered breast techniques to help you achieve the best possible outcome, no matter what your specific concerns might be.

Before Your Breast Revision

Your initial consultation with Dr. Saad will be your chance to share your reasons for your dissatisfaction with your current breast implants. Dr. Saad will listen carefully to your concerns so that he can recommend the best solution to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Whether your revision will be primarily designed for cosmetic reasons or to address a medical issue, your plan will be tailored to your precise needs.

Breast Revision Options

As you contemplate breast revision surgery, there are a variety of options Dr. Saad might present to produce the effect you are seeking:

Implant Exchange

Dr. Saad will remove your current implants and replace them with new ones. This may be done to change the size or shape of the breast contour, or to switch the type of implant from saline to silicone or vice versa. It is also recommended if one of your implants ruptures. Dr. Saad has co-pioneered the Harmonie breast augmentation technique, which produces a smoother, more natural result by placing the new implants between the chest muscle and the fascia, which is the connective tissue that lies between the muscle and the breast tissue.

Implant Removal

You may select to have your implants removed and return to your original breast size. In some cases, a lift procedure might be performed at the same time as your implant removal to create a more youthful body profile.

Some patients may opt to replace their implants with an innovative procedure known as autologous fat transfer (or natural breast augmentation). This enhancement begins by removing unwanted, excess fat from other areas like the abdomen, buttocks or thighs. The removed fat cells are purified and injected into the breasts to create additional fullness, producing natural, long-lasting results. Dr. Saad has refined each step of this procedure to create the best outcome for his patients.

Breast Lift

If the breasts have begun to droop and sag, a breast lift may be suggested alone or in conjunction with an implant exchange. This is a common occurrence over time, as the effects of gravity can have a negative effect on the breast contour. A lift will restore the breasts to a higher, more youthful position on the chest.

About Your Surgery

Breast revision can often be performed using local anesthesia with sedation, although Dr. Saad may recommend general anesthesia for some patients. Every effort will be made to use the same incisions as the original procedure to eliminate additional scarring after the second surgery. Through the incision, Dr. Saad will make the implant exchange and perform any other procedures necessary to create the desired results.

The Recovery Process

Breast revision can be done on an outpatient basis, and you will go home with oral pain medication to keep you comfortable for the first few days of recovery. Patients are usually back to their regular schedule within about one week and may resume more strenuous activity after a month or so. When performed by a skilled surgeon like Dr. Saad, breast revision should produce positive, long-lasting results.

No matter what your reason might be for wanting to revise your initial breast augmentation, Dr. Saad may be able to help. Contact his office today.
