What is an implant revision?

When it comes to cosmetic procedures, breast implant surgery is one of the most popular surgeries of choice. Unfortunately, there are some women who are not satisfied with the results of their procedure. When problems occur after surgery, a breast implant revision is necessary in order to resolve the issue and provide women with a better result. Breast implant revisions are not very common and the national revision rate is 13-28%. It is important to note that not all breast revisions involve a mistake. For some women, a personal choice is made to have the implant replaced. Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi will provide a complete evaluation and create a tailored plan to ensure the desired results are delivered.

Common Reasons for Surgery:

Breast revision corrects circumstances in regard to breast implants. The surgery focuses on removal, replacement, or making a switch from saline to silicone based implants. Listed below are the most common cases where a patient may be a candidate for this treatment.

  • Ruptured implants:  A problem that requires insertion of new implants.
  • Capsular contracture: A problem that occurs when the tissue around the breast hardens and changes the breast shape. Sometimes, this creates too much space between the breasts and an unnaturally round look can result.
  • Bottoming out: A condition that results in breast implants that drop too low.
  • Asymmetry: A condition regarding the position in which implants are placed, making them appear uneven.
  • Symmastia: A condition that occurs when the implants are placed too close together.
  • Snoopy deformity: A condition that makes the breasts appear elongated, resembling the shape of the cartoon character’s face.
  • Implant rippling: A condition where ridges and wrinkles occur due to rippling on the surface of the breasts.
  • Breast size: An occurrence in which the patient is unhappy with her breast implant size. Sometimes, a replacement surgery is beneficial to reach the desire shape and size.
  • Implant outline: A condition in which the outline of the implant becomes visible, resulting in an unnatural appearance.

When women are not happy with the results after undergoing breast implant surgery, it is important that they consult a plastic surgeon to have the issues resolved. Breast implant revision surgery is a practical solution when performed by the hands of a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

So I wanna start off by saying I live in Utah & made several trips to Vegas to have a consultation, pre-opp, and surgery at V.I.P & I couldn’t be happier I made this decision. First of all I read so many reviews about this place before booking an appointment & got the notion Dr. Khorsandi had bad bed side manners and to just go in there with that in mind, so I went in and I was completely blown away at how far from the truth that could be. I definitely wouldn’t take any negative comments seriously because all the other amazing things I read about him and his office were completely on point. I went in for a breast augmentation & showed him a picture, told him that’s what I want and let him do the rest. I let him choose sizing, profile, etc. and very happy I did. When you read up a lot on implants you think you know what you’re talking about until you go to a professional and they say something else other than what you think, it can be conflicting but I chose to go with my gut & allow him to make all the decisions. I was scared at the sizing he chose, it sounded like they were gonna be too big but I was totally wrong, they came out perfectly! I’m also a recovering drug addict & as soon as he read that on my chart he said he didn’t want me to have to take any narcotics and comped a nerve blocker for me instead, I walked out of his office with tears in my eyes because I had never had a doctor be so understanding and kind about me being in recovery. & not only that but not wanting to risk putting me in a situation that could end in relapse. The girls in the office were so sweet & reassuring as well. I loved Patricia! She was easy to communicate with & gave me great advice, that if she didn’t tell me prior to surgery I might have had a bad experience. The day of surgery I was terrified & probably overly annoyingly nervous, but all the staff at the surgical center were so understanding, they entirely calmed my nerves when it was time to go under that the last thing I remember is laughing with the nurse putting me under! Dr.Khorsandi also came by to draw on my chest before surgery and had the most kind words to say & is just a super down to earth person. I feel like he went above and beyond by just being himself & that honestly is the most amazing feeling because it reassured me he was being sincere and genuine the entire time. He definitely is blunt & to the point but he knows what he’s doing!! His team reached out a few times while I was recovering & I couldn’t be happier with the results & my breasts haven’t even dropped yet. This experience was worth every penny. VIP plastic surgery is my new go to spot & very worth the drive! Thank you dr.khorsandi.  pics are 2 weeks post opp!

Taking his time with my difficult case, he created the final outcome for me with his experience and I will say He is the Doctor to choose for your future cosmetic surgery decisions. Thank goodness, for this amazing surgeon and I will be forever grateful for him taking the time to make me feel amazing, beautiful, and confident.

I was overdue for my breast implant replacement. I knew I wanted to go smaller, plus have a lift as well. A couple of years prior to my ten year replacement anniversary, my best friend invited me to VIP’s open house event. My friend use to work with Dr. Khorsandi, prior to him opening his own practice. She saw first hand how he consulted with potential patients and was in awe of his professionalism with his consultations. He never promised anything he couldn’t deliver and always had the patients best health reasons and safety in mind. This impressed my friend and why she always spoke very highly of Dr. Khorsandi and had the upmost respect for him. She also witnessed how devoted and serious he was in his career and how hard he studied for his medical board certifications. At the open house event, I met Dr. Khorsandi and he gave me consultation on what I wanted done with my breast reduction. I was very pleased with what he could offer me. He also suggested I get blepharoplasty surgery as well. I was in full agreement. When I was finally ready to have my surgical procedures done, I went to a couple of other plastic surgeons for consultations, but my instincts directed me to Dr. Khorsandi. I’m glad I did. He is very knowledgeable and professionalism all around. His staff is kind and always available to answer any questions. My procedure went very well and I am so delighted with the results. My breast reduction with lift looks very flattering for my body frame and my blepharoplasty took 10 years off my face. I’m so happy I went with my dear friend’s recommendation to have Dr. Khorsandi perform my cosmetic procedure. I will definitely use him in the near future for my next wish list procedure, liposuction. .

Surgical Approach

As every patient is unique, the particular type of breast revision surgery, and how involved it will be, will depend on the situation. Dr. Khorsandi will evaluate all of the patient’s concerns, whether there is an issue with placement, scarring, appearance, or size of the breasts after breast augmentation has occurred. From that point, the specifics of the revision or replacement procedure will be addressed. Patients who simply desire a new size should have a relatively easy experience regarding surgery. Breast implant revision surgery, however, is actually considered to be more involved than the initial procedure. Incisions will be made and could be performed in various locations. The areola, and beneath the breasts are typical locations for incisions, sometimes a vertical breast incision is needed as well. These details will be discussed at length during the consultation.

During/After Surgery

Breast revision surgery is considered an outpatient procedure and is performed under general anesthesia. The average revision surgery takes approximately 1-2 hours to complete. Patients can resume their normal routine on the second week. It will take a few more months for the effects of the revision to become noticeable and the breast to develop a natural feel and look.

Expected Costs

A breast revision procedure can cost between $5,000 to $15,000 depending on the surgical case. It will cost more if there is an implant replacement or if there are other additional procedures such as breast lift or scar tissue removal. In cases when implants are a manufacturer’s defect, warranties may cover a portion or all of the surgical cost.
