While breast augmentation is a procedure that provides exceptional results for thousands of women every year, some individuals consider revision breast augmentation to exchange their breast implants, address complications or dissatisfaction with the outcome of a previous breast surgery, or remove the existing breast implants without replacing them. Dr. Semira Bayati is highly skilled with revision breast augmentation procedures and can develop a treatment plan designed to help you address your concerns with results that more accurately align with your initial goals.

What Are Some of the Common Reasons for Revision Breast Augmentation?
There are a variety of reasons women may choose to undergo revision breast augmentation surgery. Some of the most common include:
- The desire to exchange their current breast implants to a different type or shape
- The desire to increase or decrease the size of their breast implants
- To address complications that have arisen due to capsular contracture (excessive scar tissue surrounding the implant), a rupture in the implant, or other concerns
- To place the implants in a new location (such as switching from placement over the chest muscle to under the chest muscle)
- To address concerns such as asymmetry, implant malposition, imperfections in breast contour, or general dissatisfaction with the results from a previous surgery
- To address concerns about Breast Implant Illness (BII)
- The desire to return to the original breast size
Regardless of the reason you are considering revision breast augmentation, our board-certified plastic surgeon can talk with you about your goals and explore your options. All of our revision breast augmentation procedures are completely customized for each patient based on their individual needs and goals. During your initial consultation with Dr. Bayati, she will answer your questions and address any concerns you may have.
What Does the Revision Breast Augmentation Procedure Involve?
Revision breast augmentation is typically an outpatient procedure with no need for an overnight hospital stay. The particulars of each procedure will depend on factors that are unique to each patient’s individual needs and goals. Depending on the technique utilized in the original breast augmentation, the incision locations from that procedure can often be used for the revision breast augmentation surgery. This makes it possible to perform the procedure without creating additional scars. For patients who choose to go with new implants, Dr. Bayati can typically remove the current implants and replace them with the new implants in the same procedure. A breast lift treatment in addition to revision breast augmentation may also be an option for women who would like to simultaneously address sagging breast tissue and rejuvenate breast firmness and projection.
What Can I Expect During Revision Breast Augmentation Recovery?
The recovery process from revision breast augmentation will be different for each patient depending on the technique utilized and the customized treatment plan; however, most patients can expect some level of swelling and bruising in the breast areas as they heal. Many patients are ready to return to their normal daily activities within approximately one week; Dr. Bayati will provide you with detailed recovery instructions and recommendations to help make sure the healing process is as smooth as possible. Patients will need to refrain from strenuous exercise and other activities that may compromise healing for a minimum of six weeks after surgery.
How Much Does Revision Breast Augmentation Cost?
Revision breast augmentation is customized for each individual patient; therefore, the total price varies depending on several factors. The cost of revision breast augmentation will be calculated based on the complexity of the treatment, the technique that is utilized, whether a new set of breast implants is being placed, fees associated with the surgical facility and anesthesia, and other components. Once Dr. Bayati has met with you for an initial consultation and has designed a treatment plan, a member of our staff will produce the total cost estimate and answer your questions. In addition to a full range of convenient payment options, our practice accepts plastic surgery financing plans from reputable companies such as ALPHAEON™ Credit and CareCredit®.
