For more than 20 years, board-certified plastic surgeon, Michael Hueneke, MD, has provided these services to women in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville, Franklin, Smyrna, and the surrounding areas of Tennessee.
What is Breast Revision?
Breast surgery is intended to help a woman feel confident about her body, but things do not always go as planned. Women may choose to have breast revision surgery for many personal reasons, such as:
- Rupture of the implant
- Scar tissue development
- Abnormalities with the implant, such as ripples
- Changes to lifestyle that dictate smaller breasts, such as entering a career field or getting married
- Wanting to go larger with the implants
Whenever possible, Dr. Hueneke uses the same incision lines as what were made for your initial breast surgery. This helps to control the number of new scars that you have as a result of revision breast surgery. While performing the revision surgery, Dr. Hueneke evaluates the tissues to look for signs of leakage and scar tissue. If he finds evidence of these events, he removes the damaged tissue. Dr. Hueneke may decide to place the new implant in a new pocket, such as above the pectoral muscle for women who previously had their implants below the pectoral muscle.
What is the Cost of Breast Revision?
The average cost of breast revision varies by patient, depending on their aesthetic goals. We can discuss the details of your cost for breast revision at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.
What Are the Benefits of Breast Revision?
- Corrects abnormalities and other issues stemming from previous breast implant surgery
- Addresses minor imperfections, such as asymmetry, dimples, and irregular nipple orientation
- Helps women change their bodies as their lifestyles change
- Removes scar tissue and leakage from breast tissues
What is the Recovery Time for Breast Revision?
Your recovery from breast revision surgery is based upon how quickly you heal and the extent of the procedure. If you are having your implants removed and replaced and Dr. Hueneke finds no issues during the procedure, expect the healing to take as long as your original breast surgery. Breast revision surgeries that are more complex, such as removing scar tissue, may require longer healing.
