Most surgical breast procedures are extremely successful, but in some circumstances, patients experience dissatisfaction with the outcome. Breast revision performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Timothy E. Fee, MD, can correct your breast augmentation to give you the bustline you desire. With two convenient locations—Jacksonville and Fleming Island—Coastal Cosmetic Center offers breast revision to residents in or around the surrounding communities in North Florida and throughout the world.
What is Breast Revision?
Breast revision refers to a secondary breast surgery to correct a former breast implant surgery. Breast revision is performed to replace previous implants that have suffered from irregularities or to switch the size to reach the patient’s aesthetic goals.
What is Illusio (Breast) Imaging?
Illusio is a virtual 3D breast augmentation and simulator app. Dr. Fee utilizes this computer imaging technology to give you an impression of what your breasts and overall appearance will look like following your breast surgery. Illusio combines a 3D image of what your breasts will look like based on your implant selection along with a live image of your face and body. Together, you are able to see what your breast surgery results will look like in real time. This helps to eliminate stress and anxiety that often accompany plastic surgery.
What Are the Benefits of Breast Revision?
Breast revision can restore implants that have altered in appearance due to rippling or deflation. With breast revision, patients can also get the size implants they desire if they have since changed their mind after their original augmentation.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Breast Revision?
The ideal candidate for breast revision is any woman who:
- Desires to switch the size or type of her implants
- Suffers from irregular implant appearance, including rippling, asymmetry, or deflation
- Has unnatural hardening of the original implants
What is the Procedure for Breast Revision?
Performed in our nationally accredited on-site surgery center, Coastal Surgery Center, located in Jacksonville, FL, breast revisions take place under general anesthesia. For most patients, the existing implants will be removed and the cavity under the tissue or muscle will be reformed in preparation for a new implant.
What is the Recovery for Breast Revision?
The recovery time following breast revision surgery will vary between patients; however, most women are able to return to normal activities within several days. Any activities that put undue strain on the breasts should be avoided for four to six weeks following the procedure.
How Much Does Breast Revision Cost?
During your consultation, Dr. Fee will review the documentation from the previous surgery and discuss the best treatment plan to meet your vision for a beautiful bustline. Costs will also be discussed at this time. For your convenience, we offer financing options to assist you in paying for your procedure.
