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 a Beverly Hills breast revision surgery by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Gould today.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Complex breast surgery focuses on patients who have had several surgeries or are looking for an opportunity to rejuvenate their breasts. Take back your shape and discuss your options with Dr. Daniel Gould in our Beverly Hills office.
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 Beverly Hills patients 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.
Dr. Gould will discuss your options during your consultation and determine what is suitable for your body and surgery.
Once Dr. Gould assesses the needs for your breast revision, he will determine the placement of your incisions. It is unlikely they can be placed in the same area because of scar tissue. However, Dr. Gould is a highly skilled surgeon and can place incisions in inconspicuous areas with minimal scarring.
Breast Revision surgery differs for each patient because the complexities of the revision will vary. After a thorough evaluation and consultation, Dr. Gould will customize your treatment plan, and his patient coordinator will discuss the cost of your procedure.
It is crucial to discuss your coverage options with your insurance provider. Typically, Breast Revision surgery is considered an elective procedure and not covered by medical insurance. However, Dr. Gould offers payment and financing options for your convenience.
