Rejuvenate and Improve

Complex Breast Revision in Beverly Hills, CA

Breast revision is a cosmetic surgical procedure to correct previous surgery results or multiple surgeries. These are often complex breast revision cases because there is complex internal healing, or the implants may need to come out and allow the patient to go implant-free. In addition, the patient may be dealing with textural changes in the skin, have concerns with the location of the nipple or the shape of the breast, in general.

Dr. Gould is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, CA. When he takes on a complex breast surgery case, he wants his patients to know that this is likely their last surgery. Learn more about Breast Revision Surgery in Beverly Hills by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Gould today.

Am I a good candidate for breast

It is important to discuss your concerns with your physician and understand your expectations, because complex breast surgery is not a traditional procedure like breast augmentation. However, you don’t have to be unhappy with your current breast implants; often, the patient’s results change or their body changes, and now a revision is necessary. You are an ideal candidate for complex breast revision if:

  • You want your breasts lifted.
  • You want your implants removed.
  • You want lower maintenance breasts for your breasts in the future.
  • You have had previous breast implants and are unhappy with the results.
  • You want to replace the volume in your breasts with fat from your own body (fat transfer breast augmentation).

In addition, for women who may be older and want a lifestyle change that gives them a surgical intervention and enables them to live a lifestyle that is more in line with how they live now, a breast revision is an excellent choice. Other patients may want to maintain implants but choose to downsize or change the type of implant to fit their bodies better.

Your Breast Revision Procedure
Maintaining Your Aesthetic

Every surgery is highly individualized and will differ with each patient depending on the complexities of each case. Your breast revision is performed as an outpatient procedure and typically takes one to three hours but depends on if additional surgical procedures are happening, such as a breast lift. You can expect to be under general anesthesia, but it can be performed with local IV sedation. Your incisions are usually in the exact location as your original incision.

Changing breast size or implant

Dr. Gould may need to manipulate the space inside the breast tissue to fit your new implant or place a surgical mesh to add additional support within your breast pocket.

Capsular Contracture

Scar tissue (capsule) that forms around implants becomes painful. In this case, Dr. Gould performs a capsulectomy and removes the firm capsule before inserting your new implant.

Breast Lift

When a mastopexy is needed as part of your breast revision, new incisions are required depending on the amount of lift necessary to position the breasts back to a more youthful position.

Recovering from a Breast Revision

Once your breast revision is completed, Dr. Gould will bandage your incisions and place you in a compression bra. You will spend the first night in an aftercare facility to ensure your safe recovery. Your next day includes a visit to a hyperbaric chamber which infuses your tissues and cells with oxygen and speeds up healing. The oxygen treatment can also help you feel more alert and get rid of the leftover brain fog from the anesthesia.

You can expect seven to ten days of downtime and will need to avoid lifting your arms and heavy objects. However, light exercise is encouraged, such as walking, because it helps circulation and decreases swelling. For breast revision, patients in Beverly Hills will see results immediately, but you should wait about three months after your surgery to see your final results. It takes up to a year for your incision scars to fade.

Frequently Asked Questions

You are kept quite comfortable during surgery as you are under general anesthesia. The next day, Dr. Gould will have you undergo a hyperbaric treatment that delivers oxygen to your cells and have you receive a lymphatic massage to thwart additional swelling after surgery. Dr. Gould’s unique post-surgical treatments aid in rapid recovery to reduce pain and discomfort after surgery.

The two most common side effects from a facelift include developing a hematoma—which is a build-up of blood under the skin and usually results from too much activity. Dr. Gould can drain the excess fluid with a syringe if this happens. The second common side effect is an infection at the incision sites. You will receive post-treatment instructions for caring for your incisions, including how to keep your face clean for optimal results. There are extremely rare risks of nerve injury, which is less than 0.9% in this technique. More commonly, swelling in the face and the muscles can interfere with muscle function and make your smile appear heavy for a few weeks as swelling subsides.

facelift is a highly customized surgery. Therefore, the cost of the procedure will differ with each patient. During your consultation, Dr. Gould spends significant time listening to your facial and skin concerns, discussing your options, assessing and taking photos as needed, and devising a surgical treatment plan to meet your needs. The cost of your outpatient facelift surgery is discussed immediately after the consultation with Dr. Gould’s coordinator.

rhytidectomy (face lift) is a cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedure and is not covered by medical insurance. However, we offer payment and financing options for your convenience.

Each procedure targets the lower portion of your face to correct sagging skin, jowls, and volume loss in your cheeks. The deep plane facelift is a specialized approach that targets the deeper structures and resets the foundation of your facial fascia or connective tissue. Traditional facelifts pull that fascia or remove some of it, or more commonly, they simply tighten it in a vector and remove skin. Studies have shown a deep plane may have more longevity, but Dr. Gould does it because it looks more natural and less pulled or odd. It makes sense that redraping the fascia is better in concept than tightening it externally. These same concepts apply to the neck, and the Crevasse technique also improves your neck look.

During your consultation, Dr. Gould will discuss non-surgical options with you for you to consider—these include RF treatments, Morpheus8, Profound, FaceTite, as well as dermal fillers.

Your surgery is an outpatient procedure, which means you can return and recover at home with a home nurse, or you may choose to stay overnight in an aftercare facility to be available for an appointment the next day. In either case, you will need someone to drive you home and help you for the first 24-48 hours after surgery.
