Below you will find more information on how a breast revision may be what’s right for you.

Breast Revision Surgery

Breast revision surgery is a secondary procedure done after your initial breast augmentation. This surgery will help you get the breast size you want, especially if you are considering larger breasts. If size is the only issue, your breast revision surgery should be fairly straightforward. However, if you are unhappy with the shape, placement, or how they have settled, you may need more extensive treatment. This is completely normal as many women want more out of their breast revision surgery than just a larger size.

No matter what your needs are, it’s important to schedule a consultation with a board-certified surgeon. This is the appointment where you and your surgeon will discuss your expectations. They can also provide you with a realistic plan for how your revision breast surgery in Beverly Hills will go. Because your initial breast augmentation did not result in your satisfaction, it’s important to let the surgeon know what went wrong so they can do their best to avoid the same issues.

You should reach out for this appointment as soon as possible. But you may need to wait some time before you get the revision surgery. This is because you will likely be swollen, sore, and tender for a while. Most surgeons suggest waiting at least three to six months to let your chest settle. However, many women often report an increase in self-confidence and satisfaction in their surgery after their revision procedure.

Selecting Your Size

During your consultation, you will be able to try on “sizers” to help give you a better idea of what your implants will look like. These are neoprene sacks filled with beads. They can give you a feel of what the size would look like on your chest. It’s important to consider the size you are now. But also consider how much you can realistically add to your chest without it being too big. Consider your body frame, size, your body weight, and chest proportions as these all play a role in your decision.

Once you make the decision to move forward with your revision surgery, the process is very similar to your original augmentation in terms of the preparation and recovery process. However, unlike the first procedure, you should feel much more satisfied and confident in your new breasts.
