What Is Breast Revision?
Breast revision surgery is any follow-up procedure performed after original breast surgery. Most revision surgery is due to implants, though not all. The breast revision can be to remove or replace your implants, or it can be to improve your appearance, such as with a breast lift. Dr. Dabbah will create an individualized surgical plan to address your concerns.
Why Choose Dr. Dabbah for Your Breast Revision?
A breast revision can be more challenging than the original surgery, as Dr. Dabbah will be working with a surgically altered breast with existing scarring. It is vital to your safety and success of the operation to choose a plastic surgeon who understands and has experience with these unique challenges.
Reasons for Undergoing a Breast Revision Surgery
Breast implants will remain in your breasts until you remove them by choice or necessity. After breast augmentation, women may be dissatisfied and choose to remove them, or replace them with a different size. If there is a health concern such as a silicone implant rupture, it is necessary to remove the implant and any silicone that has leaked into the capsule.
Ruptured implant: Recent gel implants are more durable and longer-lasting than older silicone devices, but there have been instances of rupture. Rupture of a silicone implant may require breast imaging to confirm. If saline implants rupture, they leak. The breast will look deflated, and removing the implant will be necessary.
Desire to remove implants: Some women may decide they no longer want breast implants. Breasts change with age, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy, and the implants may make a woman feel too large or her breasts feel heavy. A breast lift may be an option to elevate your breasts to a more youthful position following breast implant removal.
Change implant size or material: Some women may initially be happy with their breast size or shape, but eventually decide to go bigger or smaller. You may also want to switch from silicone implants to saline or vice versa, depending on your preferences.
Breast rippling: Occasionally, the implants wrinkle, which is noticeable in some positions.
Capsular contracture: Capsular contracture is a painful complication some women experience, which involves a hardening of the scar tissue around the implants.

During a consultation with Dr. Dabbah, he will discuss what to expect during your recovery, post-operative care, cost and financing options, his experience and qualifications, and any other procedures that may enhance your results.

Some women may decide they no longer want to have breast implants of any kind. For these patients, Dr. Dabbah offers breast implant removal. In some cases, he may recommend a breast lift to produce the best aesthetic results. As a top breast revision plastic surgeon in Boca Raton, FL, Dr. Dabbah can successfully remove breast implants and create natural-looking breasts without using implants.
Additional Procedures When Changing or Removing Implants
Since a breast implant revision can change your appearance in unexpected ways, you may consider adding a breast lift to your custom surgical plan. If your skin has stretched with age, or because of the implants, your skin may sag more than when your initial augmentation was done. The skin may be more wrinkled due to skin laxity and your areolas may have enlarged. A breast lift, with or without implants, will help to give you rounder and more youthful breasts. Revising the areola and lifting the nipple will complement the newer more youthful breasts.
