What is Breast Implant Revision?
Breast implant revision surgery is a surgical procedure in which breast implants that were previously placed by a medical professional are removed and replaced with new implants. Many patients who come in to see Dr. Breister Ghosh for breast implant revision have found that they are either unsatisfied with the job their previous surgeon did in performing their breast augmentation, are unhappy with the size breast implants they had previously chosen, or wish to have their breast implants replaced due to how long they've had them.
Additionally, patients may need replacement if they have developed capsules. Dr. Breister Ghosh's primary goal is to ensure you feel as comfortable and confident in your body as possible. During your private consultation, she'll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you get back to feeling your best.
What are the Benefits of Breast Implant Revision?
There are many benefits of receiving breast implant revision surgery with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:

How is Breast Implant Revision Performed?
Your breast implant revision will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. Each patient has different needs and goals when seeking breast implant revision surgery, so your procedure will be custom-tailored to your concerns by Dr. Breister Ghosh. In general, this surgery typically includes an implant removal with or without an implant replacement. In most cases, a capsulectomy or removal of scar tissue is also performed. Women who have excess breast tissue or sagging breasts may also opt to have a breast lift during their revision surgery. After the implants are placed in the appropriate position, Dr. Breister Ghosh will check the breasts for symmetry before closing the incisions. The entirety of your breast implant revision surgery may take up to two to 3 hours to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Breast Implant Revision?
Following surgery, drains are usually placed to collect and drain any fluid that may accumulate throughout your recovery period. Dr. Breister Ghosh will also fit you with a compression bra after surgery. This bra will provide your breasts with support, reduce swelling, and promote healthy healing throughout your recovery process. Dr. Breister Ghosh and her team will recommend wearing your compression bra for up to 4 weeks following surgery. During this time, it is recommended you refrain from exercise. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for approximately 10 to 14 days off work.
