fixing various concerns

Breast implant revision is a surgical procedure designed to replace or alter existing breast implants.

Issues commonly addressed include implant rupturing, rippling, capsular contracture, asymmetry, sagging, malposition, or symmastia or "uni-boob."

fixing various concerns

The first step in preparing for breast implant revision is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Trovato. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your aesthetic and cosmetic goals with him and review before-and-after photos of previous patients who have undergone the same or similar procedures.

Dr. Trovato will also evaluate your health, medical history, and current medications to ensure you are a viable candidate for breast implant revision. He will consider factors such as skin elasticity, overall shape and size of the breasts, and any genetic predispositions to help determine the best course of action for your unique situation.

Customizing Your Breast Implant Revision

Customized Plans Just For You

At the end of your consultation, Dr. Trovato will develop a customized plan for breast implant revision that best suits your goals and needs.

No matter your situation, Dr. Trovato is dedicated to helping you reach your desired outcome with breast implant revision. He takes pride in providing understanding and compassionate care before, during, and after your procedure. Let him help you achieve a look that leaves you feeling confident and beautiful.

Breast Implant Size

When discussing breast implant size with Dr. Trovato, it is important to understand that implants are measured in cubic centimeters (ccs). The size of the new implant will depend on the patient's desired look and other factors such as their body shape and size. Implant sizes range from 60 to 800 ccs, and the chosen size should be proportional to the patient's body.

Dr. Trovato is an experienced surgeon who can help you decide on a size that best fits your individual goals and aesthetic desires. He understands that each patient's needs are unique, and he takes great care in customizing your breast implant revision to ensure you get the desired results.

Types of Implants

An outpatient surgical procedure

At Trovato Plastic Surgery, patients choose two types of implants - silicone gel and saline. It is important to understand the differences between each type to make an informed decision about which implant is right for you.

Silicone vs. Saline

Silicone Gel Implants: These implants are filled with a cohesive gel that better mimics natural breast tissue. In terms of look and feel, silicone implants will appear more natural than their saline counterparts.

Saline Implants: This type is filled with a saltwater solution, which allows the implant to be adjusted to the desired size during surgery. Saline implants may provide less rippling and folding than silicone gel implants.

Fat Transfer

Fat Transfer is another option for breast implant revision that involves harvesting fat from an area of the body with excess fat and transferring it to the breasts. This procedure provides a more natural look and feel than traditional implants and has the added benefit of removing unwanted fat in a single session.

Smooth vs Textured

Smooth and textured implants are both available at Trovato Plastic Surgery. Both types of implants provide different benefits, and which type is best for you will depend on your individual goals.

Smooth Implants: These implants have a smooth outer shell, which can move more easily within the breast pocket and reduce the risk of implant displacement.

Textured Implants: These implants feature a textured outer shell, which can help keep them in place and reduce the risk of capsular contraction.

Teardrop vs Round

Teardrop and round implants are both ideal for breast implant revision procedures. Dr. Trovato will discuss the advantages of each shape with you to determine which is best for your individual situation.

Teardrop Implants: These implants are designed to mimic the natural shape of a woman's breasts and provide a more flattering look.

Round Implants: These implants are symmetrical in shape and can provide more upper pole fullness than teardrop implants.

High, Moderate, and Low Profile

High, moderate, and low-profile implants come in various sizes and shapes. Dr. Trovato will discuss the advantages of each type with you to determine which implant best suits your individual needs and aesthetic goals.

High Profile Implants: These implants generally have a higher projection than other styles, allowing them to create greater fullness and cleavage.

Moderate Profile Implants: These implants are designed to provide a natural look and feel with less fullness at the top of the breast.

Low Profile Implants: These implants provide a more subtle augmentation, creating a slight fullness in the lower part of the breast.

Breast Implant Revision Procedure with Dr. Matthew J. Trovato

Breast implant revision improves your breasts' aesthetic and functional aspects.

Breast revision is performed as an in-office, outpatient surgical procedure. You will need someone to drive you home and possibly assist you for the following 24 to 48 hours. Similar to your previous breast augmentation, your Dallas breast implant revision begins with being administered general anesthesia. Then, Dr. Trovato will make the incisions based on your treatment plan and your revision needs.

After your incisions are closed, Dr. Trovato will wrap your breasts in a compression garment to minimize swelling. If you have drainage tubes for excess fluids, you will return in three to five days to have the doctor remove them.

Breast Implant Revision Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

expect to take five to seven days to recover

Dr. Trovato will provide you with specific post-operative breast revision instructions. You can expect to take five to seven days off work to recover from breast implant revision. However, many patients claim their breast revision was easier to recover from compared to their initial breast augmentation. It's important you refrain from lifting anything and avoid strenuous exercise for up to four weeks.

Once your swelling subsides, initial results after breast implant revision are noticeable within three months. The final results from your breast revision are more apparent after one year. Your results will last ten years or longer. Breast tissue will continue to show age over time; however, using a broad-spectrum sunscreen and limiting your sun exposure will help maintain your breast revision results.
