Breast_Revision_Surgery.jpgBreast revision surgery is a procedure or combination of procedures performed to improve or correct an unsatisfactory outcome of a previous breast surgery. This may be due to age-related changes in the body affecting surgical results, having your body respond in an unexpected way during the healing process or simply wanting a fresh look.

Breast revision surgery can resolve a number of issues related to a former surgery, including problems with implant placement or uneven breasts (asymmetry), improving the appearance of scars, removing excess scar tissue around the implants (capsular contracture), and addressing implant replacement, removal or adjustment. The goal of breast revision surgery is to give you beautiful, natural looking results, regardless of your reasons for needing revision surgery in the first place.

A concern among patients who are interested in breast revision surgery is if insurance will cover the procedure. Health insurance companies will often cover breast revision surgery, particularly if it is associated with:

  • Firm breast implants or capsular contracture
  • Uneven breasts
  • Ruptured breast implants
  • Breast deformities after surgery
  • Poor scars
  • Recurrent breast enlargement after breast reduction
  • Wound healing issues

If you have had a previous breast procedure and are unhappy with the results, you may be a candidate for breast revision. The ideal candidates should be in good health both physically and mentally, and maintain realistic expectations about the outcome of their procedure. Every woman’s needs are different and there is not a single approach toward breast revision surgery. In Denver, Dr. Serota is focused on delivering the best results to each patient based on their personal appearance goals and concerns.
