Breast implant revision surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia and takes around 1-2 hours on average. Using general anesthesia ensures you are completely comfortable and relaxed during surgery and that you feel no pain whatsoever.
Dr. Delgado will seek to use the previous incisions wherever possible so as to avoid creating new scarring. He will remove the old implants through the openings and analyze the scar tissue. Any scar tissue that has hardened will be excised.
The doctor will then assess the viability of the breast capsule, either reducing or enlarging the pocket as needed. In certain cases, Dr. Delgado will need to create a new capsule beneath the pec muscles, which can help decrease the chance of implant visibility and rippling.
In order to achieve the best possible outcome, Dr. Delgado may incorporate ADM (Acellular Dermal Matrix) or mastopexy as part of your breast implant revision process. He will discuss all of your options with you in-depth during your initial consultation.
