He tailors each treatment plan according to his patients’ unique goals and concerns to ensure optimal results that conform to their anatomies.
About Revision Breast Surgery
What is revision breast surgery?
Revision breast surgery is a surgical procedure that aims to correct the botched results of primary breast surgery. Women may undergo a revision breast surgery for numerous reasons, such as overcoming complications related to the implants (capsular contracture, ruptured implant, breast rippling, etc.), changing the breast shape or size, correcting surgical errors, or simply enhancing the aesthetic results. Whatever your goals, you must contact highly skilled and reliable breast surgeons to ensure optimal results.
Reasons you may need a revision breast surgery:
- Ruptured and deflated saline implants
- Ruptured silicone implants, as observed through an MRI
- Rippling or drinking of the breast because of rippled saline implants
- “Double” breast appearance because of improper implant placement
- Severe capsular contracture, which shifts the breast implant position
- Removal of unwanted breast implants
- Breast implant replacement to change the shape or size of the breasts
- Unwanted or undesired cosmetic results of the primary surgery
- Capsular contracture, i.e., formation of scar tissues around the implant
- Implant bottoming out because of its shifting location
- Other unwanted surgical results and outcomes
Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized revision breast surgery technique
A revision breast surgery is a highly personalized procedure that must be curated according to your unique goals and lifestyle. Dr. Lisiecki will carefully examine your anatomy, run any necessary imaging tests, discuss your goals and symptoms, and curate a personalized revision breast surgery plan. The details of the breast surgery will depend on your unique condition, i.e., whether you want to remove an implant, replace an implant, address complications related to surgical errors, etc. The procedure is generally performed under general anesthesia, and it may take up to 3 hours or more, depending on the complexity.
Recovery after a revision breast surgery
The post-surgery recovery process depends on the specific techniques used during the revision breast surgery. The most common side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, and temporary loss of sensation around the breasts for a few weeks. You will have to wear a soft, supportive bra for a few weeks after surgery, which will aid the recovery process. Most women can resume their daily activities after a week, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for four to six weeks.
