Breast Revision Procedure
The exact kind of breast revision surgery Dr. Casper performs will depend on your needs. Removal of a saline breast implant usually involves deflating the implant, then removing it. Dr. Casper will also remove any scar tissue from the area. If you require removal of a ruptured silicone breast implant, some of the surrounding involved tissue may need to be removed as well. If you are having the implants replaced, the new implants will typically be placed right after removal of the original implants. Dr. Casper will take extra care to make sure that the results meet your goals and look natural and beautiful.
Breast Revision Recovery
The recovery process for breast revision surgery will depend on the type of surgery you undergo; however, if you are having breast implant removal, recovery will typically involve some degree of bruising and swelling in the days following surgery. Pain and discomfort can be controlled with medication. Those who are undergoing implant replacement may need to wear a compression bra in the weeks after the procedure to facilitate healing. Patients should not engage in strenuous activities for at least six weeks after breast revision surgery, and should take special care to protect the breasts from harm. Many patients are able to return to normal daily routines within about a week after the procedure.
