Breast Implant Revision Surgery: A Second Chance to Shine

Breast Implant Revision Surgery: A Second Chance to Shine

Breast implant revision surgery is not only for complications; it's also an opportunity to refresh your look and feel more confident. The procedure involves replacing, adjusting, or removing breast implants to achieve your desired size or shape. Whether it’s due to changes over time, complications, or simply personal preference, breast revision surgery is a solution that can restore or enhance the youthful appearance of your breasts. 

At GC Aesthetics®, our top priority is women's health and safety. That's why we offer high-quality breast implants backed up by our 10-year long-term safety clinical data. For this reason, we designed GCA Comfort Plus™; a lifetime warranty that covers all GCA® gel-filled implants in case any rare complications might occur, like capsular contracture (grade IV &V), breast implant rupture or BIA-LCL.   

Say Goodbye to Old Implants and Hello to a New You  

Breast implants aren't meant to last a lifetime. The FDA recommends replacing them every ten years, and in some cases, changes in size or shape can occur over time, leading to asymmetry. This is a general recommendation as breast implants are not lifetime devices; however, the time of replacements depends on the general state and health of your breast and the implant. That’s why breast revision surgery is the perfect opportunity to get the new, refreshed look you've been dreaming of. 

At GC Aesthetics®, we offer a comprehensive breast enhancement product portfolio with products that meet the needs of both surgeons and patients. From breast anatomical implants like The Matrix™, to round-shaped implants such as The Round Collection™ and our most innovative breast implant PERLE™.   

What does breast revision surgery involve?   

Picture this: You've had your trusty breast implants for a while now, but they're starting to show their age. Maybe they've gotten a little saggy or are causing some discomfort. No worries, because breast revision surgery is here to save the day! 

The goal of this surgery is simple: remove those old implants and any scar tissue, and if necessary, replace them with new ones. You'll be snoozing under general anesthesia for one to two hours while your talented Plastic Surgeon works their magic. 

Now, here's the exciting part: every breast revision surgery is unique to the individual. Your Surgeon will work with you to tailor the procedure to your specific needs and wants. Want bigger implants? Smaller ones? Maybe even a breast lift? Your Surgeon will discuss all the details with you beforehand. 

During the surgery, your Surgeon will likely use the same incisions from your previous implant procedure. But sometimes, a little more cutting is required for a breast lift. Once those old implants are out, your Surgeon will remove any unwanted scar tissue and adjust the breast pocket if necessary. And don't worry, if you're changing the implant size, they've got you covered. 

Finally, your Surgeon will skillfully stitch you up, and voila! You'll be good as new. So go ahead and strut your stuff with confidence, knowing that your trusty implants are back and better than ever.  

Is breast revision surgery painful?   

Going in for a second round of breast surgery can seem like a daunting task, but fear not! Your skilled and certified Surgeon knows just what to do to get you the best results possible. 

Since there may be some scarring and stretching of tissues, as well as changes to your anatomy from your previous implants, the procedure may require some extra attention. But with your safety as their top priority, your board-certified Surgeon will carefully choose the right approach to ensure the best possible outcome.  

How much does a breast augmentation revision cost?   

Let's face it, quality surgery isn't cheap, but neither are you! A breast implant revision surgery may cost a bit more than a primary breast augmentation due to the extra effort required by your skilled plastic surgeon. The price range in the United States can vary from $6,000 to $15,000 depending on the expertise of the surgeon and the specific needs of the procedure. Don't let the cost scare you, though. You deserve to feel confident and comfortable in your own skin, and board-certified surgeons will ensure that you receive the best possible care. 

Ready to take the first step? Schedule a consultation with a top-notch surgeon to discuss your unique needs and desires. They'll guide you through the process and provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
