You had a breast augmentation many years ago and now you are no longer satisfied with the results or are experiencing complications. These changes may have happened due to natural changes in the body (childbirth, weight fluctuations, ageing) or a suboptimal initial surgical result. There are many reasons for patients to consider revision surgery. Some common issues include implant rupture, asymmetry, switching implant size, type or profile, repositioning of the implant/correction of the implant pocket, capsular contracture (scar tissue forming around the implant that may get hard and cause discomfort and even pain), etc. The success of this surgery strongly relies on the training, skill, and expertise of your surgeon so it is very important to choose an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon with whom you can discuss these issues to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. With many years of training and experience, Dr. Andrade was able to achieve a high level of expertise and techniques in Breast Augmentation Revision surgery that can significantly improve issues in the likelihood of a favourable aesthetic surgical outcome.
It is important to understand that breast augmentation revisions are often more complex than the original procedure and typically require more time. Therefore, they will often be more costly than the original operation. Regular prices listed on our website do not apply to revisions and are on a case by case basis. Added costs can also include a breast lift if recommended by your surgeon. The technology and techniques used when performing a breast augmentation surgery have significantly changed over the years so a breast revision may help you achieve the results you desire.
