Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. Most women are extremely happy with their results. But, breast implants are not lifetime devices and eventually require removal and replacement whether due to age or malfunction ( encapsulation or disruption).
Board certified plastic surgeon Scott Greenberg, M.D., will discuss breast revision surgery with you in detail and make sure all of your questions are answered before proceeding with removal and replacement of your breast implants.
Dr. Greenberg will discuss your goals and your suitability for breast implant removal and replacement surgery. He will review your previous procedure(s) and, after a comprehensive physical examination, he will discuss your options for treatment: if, when and how to remove your implants; replacement in what position (above or below the muscle); types of implants; and if additional procedures, such as a breast lift, may be recommended. We encourage patients considering breast implant revision surgery to review procedure FAQs prior to their consultation with Dr. Greenberg.
Removal and Replacement Procedure
Breast surgery is performed in our accredited in-office surgical facility under general anesthesia as an outpatient. The procedure takes 1.5-3 hours depending on what is required. You will be able to go home after the procedure after recovering in our facility.
"Dr. Greenberg and his staff were so helpful guiding me through this process. I had several consultations but after meeting Dr. Greenberg and his staff I am so happy I decided to do this with Dr. Greenberg. I am so happy with my results. I look and feel great."
After the Procedure
Activity is limited for the first few days immediately following breast augmentation surgery but routine, non-strenuous activities may be resumed during this time depending upon comfort. You should be able to resume driving and return to work after one week. Discomfort after a breast augmentation is usually minimal and controlled with oral medication.
