About Breast Revision
Breast enhancement is a common procedure for women that may require corrections after the initial procedure. A woman may decide to have an implant exchange because she wants smaller or larger implants, or if she is otherwise dissatisfied with her current implants.
In some cases, breast implant revision is recommended for cases where the implant has ruptured, shifted, or rippled. Although complications are rare with breast augmentation, the most common problem that develops is a development of scar tissue around the breast implant. Breast implant revision may be performed as part of capsulectomy/capsulotomy. The scar tissue is removed, and the implant may need to be replaced.
Breast Implant Removal
For women who decide that they no longer want breast implants, Dr. John Serrão offers breast implant removal. After the implant is removed, the remaining tissue is reshaped into a natural shape and size.
Breast implants are not designed to last forever, just like any other medical device. Most manufacturers suggest that your implants have a 10 to 15 year life span and will need to be exchanged for safety and/or aesthetic reasons. Some implants could have a complication such as a rupture (silicone-gel implants) or a deflation (saline implants). Some women want a breast implant exchange because they do not like their current implant size and want something smaller or larger. While other women develop a significant capsular contracture or scar tissue around the implant causing a very unnatural appearance and hardness to the breast requiring surgical removal and implant replacement.

Breast Implant Exchange FAQs
What is Breast Revision?
Breast revision is a cosmetic surgery that is recommended for:
- Breast implant exchange
- Breast implant removal
- Capsulectomy/capsulotomy to remove scar tissue that forms around the implant
- Repair shifting of the breast implant
How is Breast Revision Performed?
Whenever possible, Dr. Serrão uses the scar lines from the original breast surgery for his incisions. If the scars are not in the proper location or not conducive to new incisions, he will choose locations that hide the new scars as much as possible. If scar tissue is found inside the breast, it is removed to prevent future complications.
How Long is the Recovery from Breast Revision Surgery?
Recovery from your breast revision surgery depends on the nature of your procedure. If you only have scar tissue removed, recovery may take a few months. If the implant is removed and replaced, you can expect recovery to take about as long as your original breast augmentation procedure.
How Much Does Breast Revision Cost?
Breast revision is a custom procedure that is adapted to the needs of the individual patient. As such, the cost does vary. Because medical insurance does not cover breast revision surgery, we do offer patients financing options. If you qualify, you can make affordable monthly payments that fit within your budget.
