If you’ve had breast implants in the past and experienced complications of any kind, Boulder Plastic Surgery can help. Our cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons are board certified plastic surgeons who can correct a previous breast implant procedure. By choosing our facility for your breast revision surgery, you’ll be able to improve any cosmetic defects and/or eliminate any associated health risks from your implants.
About the Operation
During breast revision surgery, our plastic surgeons usually remove previous breast implants and replace them with new breast implants in order to correct a cosmetic or health problem associated with the previous surgery.
Risks and Side Effects
While breast revision surgery is most often a corrective measure from a previous breast implant surgery, it still carries the same side effects and risks. Serious side effects are extremely rare, but patients commonly experience fatigue, soreness, and stiffness after surgery.
After the operation, patients should be careful to keep physical activity to a minimum, especially when it comes to stretching your arms. Avoid raising your arms above your head for a week after the operation. Stitches from the surgery will be removed in about a week, and patients can normally return to work within 1-2 weeks.
