Why Breast Implant Revision Surgery in Houston?
Breast revision surgery in Houston can correct a cosmetic problem from a previous breast augmentation. Typically, it involves removing and replacing problematic breast implants. Common problems addressed by implant revision surgery include tightened scar tissue, rippling, or implant rupture.
How long is the recovery from Breast Implant Revision?
After a breast implant revision surgery, you will notice pink scars from incisions. This may last a few weeks, but will diminish with time. Your breasts might seem firm during the swelling period, but will return to a softer feel. The first four weeks after surgery you will be at restricted activities with no exercise and no lifting over 8 pounds. Your stitches are usually absorbable and will not need removal. To improve your recovery time, it is important that you have some activity. Walking and getting up occasionally can improve your health. However, heavy physical activity should be avoided the first four weeks following surgery. You should take care and be gentle with your breasts for a month after having a breast implant revision surgery in Houston. Dr. Wiener will also give you instructions regarding physical activity.
What results can I expect from Breast Implant Revision?
Unless you gain or lose a lot of weight or become pregnant, your new breast shape should remain stable. You will experience enhanced size or new shape after your breast implant revision. Over time, the effects of aging will eventually alter the size and shape of your breasts. The weight of the implant will also affect how your breasts appear over time.
