Being unhappy with your breasts after cosmetic breast surgery is a disappointing experience. Breast revision helps correct the issues that have you concerned. Dr. Balinger offers breast revision for women in Houston, Conroe, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Breast Revision?
Breast revision is a personalized procedure that helps women who are unhappy with the results of their previous breast surgeries. Some of the reasons that women choose to have breast revision surgery are:
- Issues with the breast implants, such as rippling or rupture
- Wanting to change the shape, size or texture of the implants
- Lifestyle changes that are not conducive to having breast implants
How Much Does Breast Revision Cost?
The average cost of breast revision is $4,500 to $9,500. Because this type of procedure is highly tailored to the needs of the patient, we can best explain your cost after you meet with Dr. Balinger for a consultation. Dr. Balinger offers free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.
What Are the Benefits of Breast Revision?
The primary benefit of breast revision is to help you feel satisfied with your breast shape and size. In some cases, breast revision is necessary to remedy issues with the implants, such as scar tissue or implants that have ruptured or rippled.
How is Breast Revision Performed?
To the degree possible, Dr. Balinger will use the scar lines from your previous breast surgery for the incisions that are needed for breast revision. This is not always possible, so he will describe the surgical technique during the consultation. The specific steps that he follows for the breast revision depend on the nature of the procedure.
If your implants are being removed, he will check for any scarring or other issues that need to be resolved. For women who are replacing their implants, Dr. Balinger uses the existing tissue pocket whenever possible, or he may decide that the results are superior with a new pocket for the implants.
What is Recovery Like After Breast Revision?
In most cases, the recovery from breast revision is similar to what you experienced with your original breast surgery. Dr. Balinger explains the recovery process during the consultation.
How Long Will Breast Revision Results Last?
The goal of breast revision is to help you feel comfortable with your breasts for as long as possible. As such, Dr. Balinger takes a great deal of time and care to resolve your concerns with your original breast surgery. We encourage patients to speak openly and candidly with Dr. Balinger during the consultation so that he can factor your concerns into his surgical plan.
