If you are feeling discomfort with your breast implant, you may want to consider an evaluation with one of our plastic surgeons to evaluate you for a possible breast revision in San Antonio. Breast revision surgery removes, replaces, and corrects the position of an existing breast implant. We typically recommend this breast procedure for clients who want to remove, replace, enhance, or adjust their current breast implants.
Our plastic surgeons are highly experienced with breast surgeries of all kinds, including revisions. For more information and to discover how a breast revision can be right for you, contact our clinic today.
Why Do I Need a Breast Revision Procedure?
Our patients in San Antonio desire or require a breast implant revision procedure for several reasons, including breast implant malposition or displacement, breast implant rupture, capsular contracture, or the presence of rippling. Finally, the choice to undergo a breast revision procedure may be cosmetic in nature–perhaps you want a new look. No matter what your reason is, our clinic can help.
Breast Revision Initial Consultation
Your transformation begins with an initial consultation with our expert medical team. Our plastic surgeons will review your medical history and establish the next steps for correcting your concerns.
To ensure a smooth procedure and an optimal recovery, our team may advise you to:
- Temporarily stop smoking

What Can I Expect During My Breast Revision Procedure?
Your surgeon will conduct this surgery under anesthesia and according to the surgical strategy prepared for you during your consultation and pre-operative evaluation.
We advise you to have a trusted friend or family member drive you home following your procedure, as you cannot drive yourself.
Downtime, Rest, and Recovery
You should enjoy a period of recovery for the first two weeks (or as directed by your surgeon). During a period of six weeks, you will need to refrain from strenuous exercise or going to the gym. You will also need to limit movement that exerts your arms or chest muscles for the first two weeks.
Following this period, your surgeon will clear you to resume normal day-to-day activities. To enjoy your breast revision results, our San Antonio medical team advises you to follow a healthy diet and engage in an active lifestyle.
