Breast Revision Surgery Has Unique Challenges

Breast revision surgery in San Francisco

Patient initially underwent bilateral breast augmentation with 275cc normal saline implants. She developed mal-position and high riding implants bilaterally, and presented for replacement of her implants with a larger size and to improve the breast implant position.

Breast revision surgery can pose unique challenges for the breast revision surgeon. Many women in need of breast revision surgery might not have access to their original surgery records. If many years have passed since their surgery, their surgeon might not have their records. Medical retention laws and regulations differ from state to state. For California, it is suggested records be kept for a minimum of 10 years from the date the patient was last seen. However, if the surgeon has retired, the patient probably has no way of getting in contact. In a perfect world, patients should ask for a copy of their records after surgery. However, that doesn’t happen very often.

Breast Revision Complications

When a patient sees a breast revision surgeon after many years, many do not remember what size their implants are or even if they are saline or silicone. The complexity of revision surgery is even higher if the patient has already had one or more previous surgeries and has resulting scar tissue that has formed.

As the patient ages the quality of the breast tissue changes, the skin becomes thinner, and the formation of scar tissue can affect the final result.

Breast Revision Surgery will Cost More

With the complexity of breast revision surgery, the fees may be substantially higher than the original surgery. Patients should not assume that a surgeon who performs a lot of breast augmentation surgeries is equally qualified to do breast revision surgery. There are even Board Certified Plastic Surgeons that may not have the expertise for the possible complications that breast revision surgery may require.

When looking for a breast revision surgeon, do not hesitate to ask the doctor how many revisions he/she performs in a year and be sure to ask to see before and after pictures of patients. Do your homework and select a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has extensive experience with breast revision surgery.

“What You Should Know About Boob Jobs”

Breast Augmentation #1 Cosmetic Surgery Procedure

Even with the increased popularity of the butt lift, breast augmentation continues to be the number one cosmetic plastic surgery procedure according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Women's Health Magazine

 

Women's Health Magazine

Women’s Health Magazine recently published an article on the “6 Things You Should Know About Boob Jobs-From Women Who’ve Had Them.”

Regrets Over Cheap Surgery

The first patient states she had her breast augmentation surgery at age 24. She chose the cheapest option she could find which was all she could afford. Now she is sorry she didn’t do more research and wait until she could afford a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Her stitches popped open, and her doctor told her not to worry and that it would just heal. Unfortunately, she ended up with very unsightly scars. It took her six years to save enough money to have breast revision surgery.

Another patient wants women to know that for her she was very uncomfortable for three days but was able to return to her spin class after nine days. However, she did wait six weeks before resuming her upper body workouts.

Large Implants Cause the Most Discomfort in Healing

The next patient says she went from an AA cup to a DD cup and had intense pain. Her surgeon told her that her pain level was due to the large implants stretching her pec muscles.

And another patient commented on how hard it was to try to choose the right size implants. For her, after surgery, she felt she went too large and that her breasts looked fake. Even after healing it took her almost a year to accept her new body image and feel really comfortable.

The last patient states she cried a lot after surgery, she thought it might have been her pain medication that made her weepy but worried if she made the right implant choice. However, today she is very happy with her implants and only wishes that she did it sooner.

New Implants for Breast Revision

 

When considering breast revision surgery, one of the decisions to be made will be what type of breast implants to choose. Depending on what issues have determined the need for breast revision, implants can make a difference.

Sientra is the importer and distributor of Silimed implants from Brazil, being the only company outside the United States that has FDA approved breast implants. Brazil is now considered a first world economy, and uses the same FDA inspectors as Mentor and Allergan, the major implant manufacturers in the United States.

Gummy Bear Implants Get FDA Approval

Sientra was the first company to get FDA approval for their highly cohesive, form stable implants. Sientra’s form stable implants are referred to as the “gummy bear” implants, due to their consistency of the popular candy. All manufacturers now offer highly cohesive implants, but each with their own proprietary variation.

One of the biggest advantages of Sientra’s “gummy bear” implants is that they cannot leak; they do not have any “inner gel.” Due to the texture of the implant, it is believed there is less possibility of a capsular contracture forming. Additionally the teardrop shape gives upper pole fullness that may help correct minor sagging or drooping and possibly avoiding a breast lift.

Natural Teardrop shape

 

When a woman is standing, the teardrop shape is very natural, with a youthful perky appearance. However when a woman is lying down the Sientra gummy bear implants do not flatten out as much as the round implant will, like a real breast. The Sientra implant appears to be softer than the 410 (Allergan), and CPG (Mentor) form stable implants and maintains its shape better than all standard round silicone gel implants, including their own.

The gummy bear implants can only be inserted through an inframammary incision (under the breast). Therefore, there will be a scar hidden only by the fold of the breast. Normally, Miguel Delgado, M.D. will use the peri-areolar approach for breast  surgery so that the incision heals to almost invisible around the areola.

There has been a lot of press about the “new” implants, and due to requests from his patients; Miguel Delgado, M.D. has made them available, even though they are more expensive.

Contact Miguel Delgado, M.D.

 

If you think the gummy bear implants may be a good option for you, you are encouraged to contact the office for a consultation with Miguel Delgado, M.D. He will review your specific situation with you and help you determine the best implant for your breast revision surgery.

Most Women Will Need Breast Revision at Least Once

 

As previously noted in other areas of this website and blogs, there are several reasons that a woman may have breast revision surgery. It may be to change the size or type of breast implant or to correct any complications from the original breast augmentation surgery. The complications include; capsular contracture, deflation or rupture of an implant, bottoming out, rippling, double bubble and implant malposition.

Miguel Delgado, M.D. always emphasizes to his breast augmentation patients that they must be aware that they will most likely need to have breast revision surgery at least once in their life and possibly more. Even though implants are made to last a lifetime, situations can occur that will necessitate revision surgery.

ASAPS Publishes Statistics for Breast Revision

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) recently published their statistics for the calendar year of 2014. The number oASAPS Logof breast augmentation surgeries was 286,694. The number of breast revision surgeries was 71,916.

Miguel Delgado, M.D. wants to remind all breast augmentation patients to save all information from their original surgery for possible future revisions. Your original surgeon may have retired, and no longer has your medical records when you may be in need of a revision. Be sure to obtain your registration card that gives the information on what size, type, serial numbers and the manufacturer of your implants. You might also ask for a copy of your operative report and file all of this important information away in a safe place.

Warranty May Cover Some of Breast Revision Costs

Remember, the manufacturers of breast implants have a lifetime warranty where they will replace your implants at no charge should they rupture or deflate. Additionally, most companies include a ten year warranty that will aid in financial reimbursement toward your surgical expenses.

Reasons for Changing  Breast Implants

 

Dr. Delgado emphasizes to his San Francisco breast revision patients that they will most likely need breast revision surgery at least once in their lifetime and maybe more.

There can be several different reasons for the need of breast revision surgery, the main one being that women want to change the size or type of implants. Other reasons include; capsular contracture, deflation of saline implants, rupture of silicone implants, shifting of position of the implants and changes in the breasts due to aging or weight fluctuations.

Breast implants are always evolving and being improved. If breast revision surgery is to be scheduled, many women opt to change the type of implant to be used. Depending on the issue a woman is having, will help determine the choice for new implants. For example, if a woman with saline implants has wrinkling, she may want to change to silicone.

With so many choices available, a woman needs to have an evaluation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, who specializes in breast surgery, to help guide her to make the right selection for her individual situation.

Silicone or Saline Breast Implants?

Saline implants have an advantage in that the size can be adjusted during surgery as they do not come pre filled as silicone implants do. Saline implants are less expensive and can be inserted through a smaller incision. The advantage of silicone implants is a more natural feel and appearance. Today, 80% of women choose silicone over saline.

Moderate, Moderate Plus or High Profile Breast Implants?

 

The difference between these implants is their diameter and projection. A woman’s chest size will determine which profile is best suited for her.

Smooth or Textured?

 

The majority of implants used today are smooth. The textured implants were designed to reduce the incidence of capsular contracture and appear to do so but only when the implant is placed above the muscle. The disadvantage of a textured implant is a thicker shell which may be more visible through the skin and more easily felt.

Round or Anatomical?

 

Most implants are round, but there is a teardrop shaped or anatomical. The anatomical are textured and therefore have the disadvantages of the textured implants.

With all the variables of breast implants, it is important to choose your surgeon carefully, be sure to ask to view before and after pictures of actual patients.

If an MRI Shows a Leak, What Happens Next?

San Francisco, California-In 1992, the FDA placed a ban on silicone breast implants except for; research studies, reconstruction and breast revision surgeries where silicone was previously used. The FDA feared there may have been a connection to a variety of diseases including lupus and cancer. Studies for the next 14 years failed to show any evidence that silicone breast implants were the cause of any diseases.

Therefore, in 2006 the FDA determined silicone breast implants were safe and once again they became available for breast augmentation surgery. The FDA did stipulate, however, that a woman must be 22 years of age in order to have silicone implants. In addition, after 3 years they recommend that women have Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and then every two years after that to make sure that there is not a silent leak. Note that this is a recommendation, not a requirement.

Even with the added stipulation, 72% of women are choosing silicone implants over saline implants, according to a report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The main reason for choosing silicone over saline is the more natural feel of the implant.

Dr. Delgado explains to his breast revision patients that an MRI is different than a mammogram in that there is not any use of radiation; instead it uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and computer imaging of the breast. It is not a painful procedure and it usually takes about 30 minutes. An MRI should not take the place of a mammogram but should be done in addition  if it is recommended.

Breast Revision Before and After

This is a 61-year-old, female resident of Santa Rosa, California who presented to the Novato office in Marin County for evaluation for revisional breast surgery. She has had her silicone implants for over twenty-four years. The silicone implants have ruptured on her left side with bilateral capsular contractures, or hardening. She underwent complete capsulectomies on both sides with removal of silicone material and replacement with 250 cc, silicone breast implants in the sub-muscular position. Her procedure was performed at Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center in Marin County, California. Note the more natural appearance of the breasts postoperatively.

With all the recent changes with medical insurance, it is hard to know if an MRI will be a covered test under any particular policy; it is advised that you check with your insurance company. If medical insurance doesn’t cover the MRI, it can be quite expensive, from about $1,500 to $2,000 or even more. Therefore, most surgeons tell their patients if they have any unusual symptoms or concerns they should be seen, and their surgeon will help them determine if an MRI may be appropriate.

If you discover you have a silent leak, Dr. Delgado will discuss your options of having your implants removed and/or replaced. If your original surgery was less than 10 years ago, the manufacturer will contribute to your breast revision surgery. Implants have a lifetime guarantee and will be provided at no charge if they are ruptured.

If you are having any issues with your breast implants, Dr. Delgado invites you to call (415 898-4161) or email (info@dr-delgado.com) for a consultation.

Breast Revision Costs and Payment Options

Hopefully, when you first got your breast implants for breast augmentation surgery, your surgeon explained that this is most likely, not a “one time” procedure. Dr. Delgado is very careful to explain to his San Francisco Bay Area patients that usually within ten years’ time some type of revision most likely will need to be done so that it will not come as a surprise. Some women may need more than one revision in their lifetime.

Breast Revision Before and After

Sonoma, California – A 45-year-old female of Monterey, California who presents to the San Francisco office at Union Square for breast revision surgery. She has had five previous breast revision surgeries. In 1996, she underwent breast augmentation using 270cc anatomic normal saline implants. Because of implant wrinkling, in year 2000 she had 35cc of saline placed within the same implant. In 2001, she had ex-plantation of the normal saline implants because of the persistent wrinkling and had placed 360cc silicone breast implants. In 2005 she wanted increase in size and underwent replacement of her 360 cc implants to 500 cc high profile silicone implants. In 2006 she developed a capsular contracture on her right side and underwent capsular contracture removal and replacement with 500cc Mentor silicone breast implants.

As stated under the “breast revision procedures” section of this website, there are several different reasons for breast revision surgery. The cost of breast revision surgery can vary quite a bit depending on what the issue is, such as;

  • Do the implants need to be replaced?
  • Are the implants ruptured or deflated?
  • Will there need to be a new pocket for the implants?

There are many other variations and combinations so it is hard to give an idea of the cost since it is a case by case situation. It will most likely be as much as the original surgery and perhaps more.

The good news is you may not be responsible for all of the fees. For example, depending on the reason for breast revision surgery, the manufacturer may supply replacement implants at no cost to you. If your revision surgery takes place less than 10 years of the original surgery, the manufacturer sometimes offers limited financial assistance.

Mentor (which is the manufacturer of the implants Dr. Delgado uses) includes a limited warranty with the purchase of their implants to assist with surgical fees during the first 10 years should a revision be necessary. Mentor also offers an extended warranty to patients for a nominal fee which may double the amount of assistance.

However, if your original surgery was more than 10 years ago, there may still be help for you. Your implants come with a lifetime guarantee, so depending on the reason of failure of the implant(s) the manufacturer will most likely replace them at no cost to you. Additionally, depending on the reason for revision, your medical insurance may cover some costs. Dr. Delgado’s patient coordinator will be able to help you apply for coverage to your insurance.

Considerations for Changing Breast Implant Size

There are several different reasons for breast implant exchange; one of the most common is to change the size of the implants. Many women will wait until they might need a breast revision for something else which will usually occur within ten years of the original breast augmentation, but some who are unhappy with their size may not want to wait.

Dr. Miguel Delgado spends a great deal of time with his patients prior to surgery in determining the correct size, so fortunately dissatisfaction with breast implant size is rarely an issue. For the few women who wished they had a different size, 90% to 95% wished they had gone larger. Usually when trying to decide between two sizes, it is advised to go with the larger of the two.

Women need to have good communication with their cosmetic plastic surgeon and trust his/her opinion when it comes to picking the right size. There are considerations for the surgeon that the patient may not understand. The surgeon wants to maintain the proportion of the breast size to the anatomical dimension of a woman’s body, taking into consideration the relation of the shoulders and hips.

There are three main body types:

1.           Ectomorph –slim, more like a fashion model

2.           Endomorph – pear or hourglass shape where body fat has a tendency to settle in the lower region of the body

3.           Mesomorph –hips are generally the same width as the shoulder, the body is more muscular in shape and body fat is stored fairly evenly over the body

Most women are a combination of body types, so it is essential that she is evaluated by an expertly trained cosmetic plastic surgeon to determine the correct size for her breast implants. However, the wishes of the patient are definitely taken into consideration. The patient needs to understand that if she wants very large implants, she may be limited by the width of her chest.  Other factors help determine the profile of the implants, such as the patient’s age and the condition of her the skin.

Breast revision 3

Santa Rosa, California – A 36-year-old mother of two who presents to the San Francisco office at Union Square for breast revision surgery. She has previously had a breast augmentation using 250cc normal saline implants. Her desire is to have an increase in size and change to silicone breast implants. She underwent removal and replacement using 360cc silicone high-profile implants as well as a tummy tuck and liposuction for a “mommy makeover”. Her surgery was performed at Dr. Delgado’s private surgical facility, Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center in Novato, Marin County, California

Different body types will accommodate different size implants; it is not a one size fits all. Bringing in pictures to the initial consultation will help the surgeon understand the patient’s goals. It is strongly advised that the patient ask to see before and after pictures of the surgeon’s actual patients.

Dr. Delgado’s main goal is patient satisfaction; fortunately he rarely has a patient dissatisfied with the choice of implants as much time is spent in helping the patient come to a decision, including doing the “rice test” which helps her visualize what the outcome will be before surgery.

 

Some breast augmentation patients are anxious to have a breast revision right away if they are not happy with the results. They need to understand that implants normally ride high for the first four months or more, the skin and muscle need to stretch allowing the implants to drop into the correct position. While some patients may think they are not happy with their immediate results, once the implants drop into position, they may change their mind; time must also be given for the patient to adjust to her new body image.

If the decision is to change implants for a larger size, it may be necessary to modify the implant pocket to accommodate larger implants. On the other hand, if a woman wants smaller implants, it is possible a breast lift may be required if there is some degree of skin laxity. Each situation is individual, and depending on what changes are to be made, will affect the cost of breast revision surgery. Breast revision usually is complicated and selection of a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in breast surgery is essential.

Does Breast Revision Surgery Cost More or Less than the Original Surgery?

Saline to Silicone

A. 43-year-old mother of two resident of Santa Rosa, California who presents to the Marin County office for breast revision surgery. She underwent breast augmentation in 2001 using 300cc normal saline breast implants inflated up to 360cc. She developed a slow leak on her right side. She underwent removal of the saline implants and replacement with 500cc moderate-plus Mentor gel implants. Note the overall fullness and nice symmetry of her breasts. Her surgery was performed at Dr. Delgado’s private surgical facility, Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center in Novato, Marin County, California

This question comes up frequently on RealSelf.com, but there isn’t one definitive answer. There are many different reasons for breast revision surgery as you will notice under the procedure section of this website.

One of the main reasons a patient has a breast revision is because she is dissatisfied with the size of her breasts, Dr. Delgado does not have this happen very often as he reviews size with the patient very carefully and has her do the rice test.  If breast implant exchange is done in the first year, Miguel Delgado, M.D. does not charge a professional fee, but there will be fees for new implants, anesthesia and the surgery center.

Breast revision surgery can be quite complicated, if the breast implants are silicone and have ruptured, it is a very tedious and time consuming procedure to remove the silicone. This is less of a problem with the newer cohesive gel implants as the gel mostly will retract back into the implant envelope. If a deflation or rupture has occurred, it is possible that the manufacturer will replace the implants at no cost and may contribute to surgical costs if it has happened within 10 years of the original surgery.

Some women will want to have the location of the implants changed from over the muscle to under the muscle; they may want to change to silicone from saline or vice versa. For “bottoming out” problems, the internal pocket may need adjustment.  It is possible that a woman will need a breast lift at some point in the future.

It is important for women to be aware that breast augmentation surgery is rarely a one-time procedure. The breast revision cost will vary greatly depending on what corrective procedure is done. The bigger concern than the cost should be in the selection of the right surgeon. In addition to being a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, the patient should be seeking out a surgeon that has much experience with breast surgeries. It is possible to get a lot of information on the internet about different surgeons, look at their website for before and after pictures, read reviews posted by other patients. Prepare ahead of time for your consultation with a list of questions. Do not hesitate to ask the doctor what procedure he/she recommends for you and how it would be performed.

Scar Treatment After Breast Revision Surgery

Breast revision3

This is a 38-year-old, female resident of Sonoma who presented to the Novato office in Marin County for evaluation for revisional breast surgery. She underwent a short-scar breast lift in 1995 and then a breast augmentation in 1996 using 120 cc, silicone breast implants. This was done at another facility. Her complaints on presentation to me were high-riding breast implants with breast contractures. She underwent complete capsulectomies on both sides with replacement with 300cc normal-saline breast implants inflated up to 325 cc bilaterally. Her procedure was performed at Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center in Marin County, California. Note the improved contour and projection of her breasts and how well the incisions have healed, especially the vertical breast lift incisional scars.

 

San Francisco, California-Breast revision surgery can be any surgery done after the initial breast surgery.

Breast revision surgery is not uncommon for the woman who has breast implants; she will most likely need at least one revision in her lifetime and maybe more. Breast augmentation complications necessitating revision surgery would include: capsular contracture, deflation or rupture of implant(s), double bubble, etc. Women who have had other types of breast surgery other than breast augmentation; such as a breast lift with or without breast implants, and/or a breast reduction, will find different factors requiring a revision such as, weight fluctuations, aging or trauma.

Women who need to have breast revision surgery have several concerns that include; how will recovery compare to the initial surgery, will the outcome be satisfactory, what will the cost be?  Many are concerned about scarring.

There are several factors that can determine the degree of scarring, for example:

•    Age-As we age our skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner and, therefore, doesn’t      heal as well.

•    Genetics-If your parents or siblings tend to scar easily, you may, as well.

•    Size and depth of the incision-Larger and deeper incisions take longer to heal giving more opportunity to scarring.

•    Race-Dark skin people are more prone to hypertrophic and keloid scars

•    Smoking-People who smoke are at a greater risk of infection, scarring and slower healing. Most Board Certified Plastic Surgeons will not operate on patients that smoke.

•    Dehydration-The patient needs to stay well hydrated, or many complications can occur and interfere with healing.

 

It is extremely important for a woman to choose her Board Certified Plastic Surgeon carefully, look for one that specializes in breast revision surgery. Examine before and after pictures of the surgeon’s patients with special attention to the final result.

The expert breast revision surgeon will know how to minimize scarring and may even be able to revise and improve on initial scars.

There are various methods of treatment for the healing of incisions, and it is important for the patient to follow her surgeon’s instructions carefully.

Patients are warned to avoid direct sunlight on their healing incisions to prevent hyper-pigmentation. Collagen is what heals a wound, and fibroblasts are a certain type of cell in the skin that is responsible for the production of collagen. Our bodies need vitamin C to produce collagen. Vitamin C supplements are important both before and after surgery. 500 mg twice a day is recommended until the incision is healed. In addition, protein is very important in the healing process as the amino acids in protein is used by your cells for building blocks in creating new cells.

Silicone Sheeting

Silicone Sheeting

Once the incision is healed, Dr. Delgado recommends his patients use silicone sheeting to promote healing. They will be given specific instructions on how to apply the silicone. All patients are given a detailed surgery information packet at their pre-operative visit that explains all pre-operative and post-operative instructions specific to their surgery.
