Does Revision Breast Surgery Require a Lift?

Get your breasts back to perfection with breast revision surgery. When women are disappointed by their breast size or shape, many turn to breast implants to achieve their ideal breast appearance. Implants are a highly effective option for shaping the body, but they don’t stop the aging process. Over time drooping, sagging, and other aesthetic changes can occur. If your breast implants no longer meet your needs, turn to revision surgery to reshape your breasts, and love their appearance once again.

What Is Breast Revision Surgery?

Breast revision replaces old breast implants with new ones. This procedure can also reshape the breasts and improve their appearance. Although breast implants are durable and long-lasting, many women will need a breast revision procedure after their initial breast augmentation. Bodies change throughout a lifetime, and breast revision surgery helps patients change the size, shape, and position of their breasts, so they continue to look their best at every stage of life.

Do I Need a Breast Lift With My Revision Procedure?

A breast lift might not be a necessary part of revision surgery. There are many reasons women consider revision surgery that don’t relate to breast sagging, including:

  • Desire to change breast size
  • Asymmetry
  • Capsular contracture
  • Implant leak or rupture
  • Desire to change breast implant type (for example, saline implants to silicone)

If you’re not experiencing breast sagging, you do not need to include a breast lift with your revision procedure. If you do have sagging, a breast lift can improve the results of your revision procedure. Changing implants will not address sagging unless a breast lift is also performed.

Need a Lift? Dr. Stanton Can Make It Happen

Although a breast lift isn’t always a necessary part of breast revision surgery, it is a common addition to this procedure. Breast sagging is one of the most common breast complaints. Aging, gravity, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, all contribute to a change in the natural positioning of the breasts. A breast lift removes excess skin, reshapes the breast tissues, and repositions the breasts to a more youthful spot on the chest wall.

Dr. Stanton can perform a breast lift at the same time as a revision procedure. As Dr. Stanton replaces your implants, he can also lift and reshape the breast tissues, often using the same incisions. Pairing a breast lift with a revision procedure significantly reduces downtime, as patients can recover from both procedures at the same time.

You may need to include a breast lift with your revision surgery if:

  • If your revision is part of a mommy makeover and you have post-pregnancy breast sagging
  • You’ve lost significant weight
  • Your breasts have lost their youthful shape and positioning

Do you need a breast lift? If you’re experiencing breast sagging, ask Dr. Stanton if you could benefit from this procedure.

Many women choose to pair breast revision surgery with a breast lift. However, it is possible to perform these two procedures separately. Learn more about breast lift and revision surgery by calling Dr. Ryan Stanton at (310) 278-0077.
