Details

Breast implant revision surgery is a cosmetic procedure that aims to replace old breast implants with new implants. Oftentimes, the goal of breast implant revision is also to change or improve the appearance – size and shape – of the breasts by updating the implant material. This surgery is not a routine procedure, and as such, it has to be customized to suit a patient’s specific goals and desires.

Who is it for?

  • People who are unhappy with size, shape or appearance of their breast implants
  • Women who are concerned about the integrity or condition of their implants
  • Women who are physically healthy and at a stable weight
  •  People who have realistic expectations
  • Women who do not smoke

Treatment Duration

30 to 150 minutes, depending on the type of revision required.

Potential Risks and Side Effects

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Poor healing of incisions
  • Hematoma
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)
  • Skin loss
  •  Numbness or other changes in skin sensation
  • Skin discoloration and/or prolonged swelling
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Recurrent looseness of skin
  • Fatty tissue found deep in the skin might die (fat necrosis)
  • Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications
  • Asymmetry
  • Suboptimal aesthetic result
  • The possible need for revision surgery
  • Persistent pain

Recovery Time

In general, recovery from breast implant revision surgery is normally 4 to 6 weeks. Patients need to take a couple of weeks off work. Patients are recommended to resume normally after 6 weeks.

Success Rate: 90-95%

How does it work?

Once you have decided to undergo a breast implant revision surgery, we will make sure that you have a pleasant trip and your procedure will be customized in a way that minimizes scarring. During the online consultations, expect the following questions:

  • Are the implants leaking or have they lost their shape?
  • What are your expectations?
  •  Do you have any medical conditions that we should be aware of?
  • Are you currently taking any medication?

Planning your trip and choosing the clinic

When you decide to undergo a breast implant revision surgery, our first step will be to present to you several detailed options of clinics and doctors. After you have chosen your preferred clinic and doctor, we will then set up an operation date and arrange your trip. All the dates are set according to your preferences!

This surgery is usually performed in the morning or afternoon, so we always recommend that you arrive in Turkey a day before the surgery –so that you can have enough time to rest.

Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your breast implant revision surgery. Part of the discussions will be about your expectations and goals.

Medical Examinations

Before the surgery commences, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in a good health state. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests so as to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery.

Preparation for Surgery

To make you feel comfortable during the surgery, your surgeon will give you local anesthesia. If you have Trypanophobia (fear of needles), you should let us know so that we can offer you doctors who can give you anesthesia without using needles.


What does Breast Implant Revision Involve?

During the breast implant revision procedure, the surgeon may simply remove the old implants and revise the shape and size of them. This is a very complicated surgery that should only be performed by a certified-surgeon.

This surgery varies from one patient to the other, and it depends on the patient’s desired outcome. But in most cases,  the breast revision surgery often involves the following steps:

Anesthesia: Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your surgeon will recommend the best option for you.

Making an incision: The type of incision used in breast implant revision surgery will vary depending upon the type of procedures that will be performed. The incision can include, but is not limited to, any of the following:

  • Inframammary incision – in the crease under the breast
  • Breast lift incision – either the vertical incision or Wise pattern incision
  • Periareolar incision – incision partway or all the way around an areola

Closing the incisions: Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips close the skin incisions.

Wait for the results: The final results of breast implant revision surgery will be initially obscured by swelling, you will begin to notice after a few weeks.

FAQ


Will breast revision surgery be able to correct my capsular contracture?

Yes. Correction of capsular contracture – the abnormal growth of overdeveloped scar tissue around the breast implant – is the primary reason that pushes many women to schedule an implant revision surgery.

Do you reuse my old implants?

This varies from one patient to the other as it depends on a number of things such as your reasons for pursuing revision surgery in the first place. For instance, patients who are interested in breast implant revision because of a capsular contracture will likely see better results and a decreased chance of recurrence if they opt for new implants.

Should I completely remove my implants?

This is a personal choice that only you should make. Many patients choose to replace implants, while others decide to return to their pre-augmentation figure.

    I highly recommended flymedi.com. Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
