What Is Breast Revision Surgery?
Breast augmentation using implants is one of the most effective cosmetic procedures in America, and in most cases, it allows for beautiful, natural outcomes. Unfortunately, sometimes a woman can be unhappy with the results of her breast implants and may require breast revision treatment. While there are a few surgeries that do end with an unpleasing outcome, there are individuals who desire a different size implant while others may prefer to have the implant changed or removed altogether. In addition, some women must have breast revision to treat a medical condition. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andre P. Marshall is an expert in breast revision surgery and can provide more information during a thorough consultation at Andre P. Marshall Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA.
"I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Marshall, he literally changed my life!!! I did a lot of research before deciding to have him perform my tummy tuck, and am SO glad I went with him as my doctor! I needed someone who made me feel comfortable (his bedside manner is the best) and confident that the procedure would be worth it, and he did exactly that - my results are waaaaaay better than I could have expected! I have my confidence back after not recognizing myself in the mirror post-pregnancy, and finally feel like myself again! THANK YOU!!!"- K.R. / Google / Dec 04, 2021
"I cannot say enough about how great Dr. Marshall is. At 58 I decided I wanted the body that I had when I was younger. From beginning to end the bed side manner and the interest in what I wanted was top notch. I am currently 3 months post surgery and looking forward to my sons wedding in December as I will look just how I wanted to for this big occasion. I will recommend Dr. Marshall to anyone who is looking for a great experience with having plastic surgery. Thank you for making my dreams come true."- J.C. / Google / Nov 30, 2021
"My results are amazing, I love my new body - From my initial encounter with Dr. Marshall’s assistant, Melissa, the service was amazing. I got all my questions answered with no delay. I met with Dr. Marshall (Dr. Dre) and I felt he was definitely the right surgeon to have my procedure with. On 11/11/21 I had my 360 liposuction and BBL. Everyone at the surgery center was great and made me feel I was in the best hands. My results are amazing. I love my new body by Dr. Dre! I’m healing well and can’t recommend Dr. Dre enough."- E. / RealSelf / Nov 28, 2021

"I'm 45 y/o with two kids who consistently works out throughout the years but the stubborn belly fat and loose skin just won't go away. I'm 3 months post op, and very thrilled and happy with the results. Kinda' wondered why I didn't do this sooner. Hats off to Dr.Marshall for doing an amazing job. He listened to what or how I wanna look like and he made that sure it was done safely(pre and post op as well). Please follow his pre and post op instructions. The man knows what he's doing and what he's talking about. Thank you again Dr. Marshall. I would definitely refer him to my family and friends."- G.D. / Google / Aug 14, 2021
What to Expect with Breast Revision
If you have any concerns (whether medical or aesthetic) after breast augmentation surgery, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Marshall to talk about your needs and desires so he can design your personalized breast revision surgery plan. Whether it's scarring, breast sag, symmastia, implant rupture, rippling, bottoming out, or size variations between the breasts, revision surgery can help address the issue and provide a properly functioning outcome. This operation can also be appropriate if you want to change size, implant styles, or address another aspect of your breasts. Following your procedure and a brief observation period, you can go home to begin your recovery. A revision that requires any type of reconstruction or grafting will have a longer recovery that could take up to several months. You should slowly start to see your results once the swelling begins to disappear. Our team will let you know what you can expect during your recovery and provide tips to speed the healing process.
Breast Revision FAQ
How much does breast revision surgery cost?
The cost of breast revision surgery can vary based on what needs to be done. In your consultation, Dr. Marshall will listen to your concerns and goals before performing a physical examination of your current implants. After this, he can discuss your options before creating your surgical plan. The cost of breast revision surgery will depend on the length and complexity of the procedure, plus your new implants. It is best to concentrate on getting great results by finding a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Marshall, rather than the cheapest surgeon. As a way to help make your surgery affordable, Andre P. Marshall Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods and can give you information on low-interest financing.
What if Dr. Marshall wasn't my original surgeon?
Dr. Marshall can perform your revision surgery even if he wasn't your original surgeon. Revision surgery can be more difficult compared to the original augmentation, especially if you want dramatic changes or have problems, which is why it is important to choose a surgeon like Dr. Marshall who has years of advanced training and experience in breast surgery. Dr. Marshall also invites his patients to return for revision surgery after their original breast augmentation surgery if they notice an issue or would like a change.
Can breast revision surgery address loose skin?
When you are having your implants exchanged or removed, you may want to have excess skin removed during your surgery. After hearing your goals and evaluating your current implants, Dr. Marshall can discuss the need for a breast lift to remove sagging skin. If you lose a significant amount of weight, become pregnant, or breastfeed after breast augmentation surgery, a revision combined with a lift can help you get better results.
