Breast Revision surgery is more complex and longer surgery than your previous Breast Augmentation. Every patient’s needs are different and your MINKST surgeon will tailor a solution to address your specific concerns while complementing your body type and personal aesthetic goals.
MINKST offers all the options with state of the art technology and techniques to enhance your experience including our Rapid Recovery technique (this may or may not apply to revision surgery) and 3D plastic surgery simulator. Even before your pre surgery consultation with your MINKST surgeon, our expert team will inform and guide you. We will ensure you are prepared and ready to get most out of your consultation.
Pre Surgery Consultation with your MINKST surgeon
At this consultation your MINKST surgeon will listen to your concerns and what you want to achieve. They will then develop with you a personalised operation plan including:
Your surgeon will also ensure you have a clear understanding of the risk of breast implant revision surgery.
Your procedure will be performed as day surgery under general anesthetic in an accredited, licensed hospital. The surgery itself takes from an hour to up to 3 hours depending on the reason for and complexity of the revision. You will spend typically a couple of hours under close supervision in the recovery area before being discharged. You will need a responsible adult to take you home and stay with you for the first night. Breast revision patients may need surgical drains for a day or two and if you do we will show you how to manage them.
You will have your surgeon’s mobile phone number in case you need them and the MINKST team will regularly be in touch to ensure everything is running smoothly. We will have arranged your first post operative check up with your surgeon before you leave the hospital.
Why choose MINKST for your surgery?
Breast implant revision is a day procedure with no need for an overnight stay. If you are not a local and cannot go home we have options for you.
Every patient is different but generally breast redo patients do not experience more than mild to moderate pain and discomfort during their recovery. Medication will be prescribed in case you need it. Approximately a week after surgery most patients can return to work. If you have a physical job you may need longer.
During the first few weeks some swelling and bruising will be present whilst the tissue is healing. This initially feels quite firm but gradually softens. Another consequence of the swelling is that it artificially lifts the breasts so you should expect some settling to a more natural result over the first few months.
