Our goal is to provide you with professional surgical care you are in need of.
Breast Implant Revision Overview
Any patient who has undergone female breast augmentation surgery can expect to have a second surgery (revision) at some point because breast implants, like all medical devices, require maintenance. Breast implants that are either filled with saline or silicone gel are not lifetime devices. When a patient perceives there is a problem with the implant a thorough consultation is necessary to review the options for the desired change. When a saline implant deflates, the patient typically will desire replacement for the same or different size or style of implant. There are many choices for patients to make in terms of size (volume), projection (profile), width (cleavage) and filler (saline vs. silicone). All of these options will need to be reviewed during an in depth consultation that will review your expectations. Dr. Casas will help you decide whether revision surgery makes sense. Capsular contracture is the tightening of the normal scar tissue that forms around the breast implant. This can make the breast feel firm and can distort the breast shape. Dr. Casas will review whether treating this with reoperation to remove the scar tissue and replace the implant is appropriate for your expectations.
Recovering From Breast Impant Revision Surgery
Bruising and swelling are to be expected following breast implant revision surgery. Swelling can take around 3 weeks to subside. Any pain or discomfort can be managed with medication. Most patients will need around 1 to 2 weeks off from work to allow their body to properly recover. Strenuous activity like exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for longer. Our team will provide you with post-operative instructions to guide you through the process.
Cost And Payment Options
The cost of your breast implant revision in Chicago will be based on several factors. During your consultation, Dr. Casas will ask about your reasons for undergoing breast implant revision surgery so that she can formulate a surgical plan based on your needs. Dr. Casas will let you know what the expected cost of your breast implant removal will be and go over the payment options available to you.
