When Is Breast Reconstruction Revision Necessary?

Breast reconstruction revision surgery may become necessary in several situations. Complications such as capsular contracture can cause a painful hardening and distortion of the breast shape for women with breast implants. Over time, reconstructed breasts may change shape or become imbalanced due to radiation therapy. And some women have large scars left by older mastectomy techniques. If you are experiencing any of these issues, breast reconstruction revision surgery may be the solution you’re looking for.

Breast Reconstruction Revision FAQ

How long do I need to wait after my initial breast reconstruction surgery to have revision surgery?

Patients typically need to wait at least 6 months to give the tissues time to heal and stabilize before having revision surgery. This timing can vary with the reason for surgery; for example, a complication may need to be addressed sooner.

Will insurance cover breast reconstruction revision?

Medical insurance coverage varies with providers, policies, and the specifics of the revision surgery. If the surgery is medically necessary, it is more likely to be covered than for a cosmetic reason. Our office staff is happy to help you navigate payment for your surgery and help you attain any necessary documentation, if possible.

What is the recovery time for breast reconstruction revision?

Recovery depends on the type of revision surgery performed and individual patient factors. As with the initial surgery, patients must limit strenuous exercise for about 4 to 6 weeks. You will receive specific recovery instructions during your consultation.

What is breast reconstruction revision with fat transfer?

Fat transfer involves removing fat from one area of the body with liposuction, purifying it, and injecting it into another area of the same patient’s body. Surgeons can use fat transfer to fill in contour defects, replace implants, or enhance areas of the breast to improve the results of a previous breast reconstruction procedure.
