A tricky procedure with much to consider

Unlike other plastic surgeries that enhance small, specific areas, breast enhancement surgery covers a larger area and, therefore, comes with greater change in body tissues. This makes any revision surgery on the breasts much more daunting—for a patient to have to go through the whole process all over again. Therefore, in revision breast surgery, it is important for the surgeon to be sufficiently experienced and make the process easier for the patient: through a more thorough diagnosis and precise planning. The right timing for revision surgery is within 6–12 months after the initial surgery, after the breast tissues have sufficiently settled, and stable aftercare must be provided as well, to allow the patient to psychologically recover from anxiety or loss of confidence.

Revision Breast Surgery: Key Points
  • Appropriate degree of revision
    to minimize stress
    To prevent recurrence and plan a proper revision, the surgeon must be experienced enough.
  • Not rushing into a revision surgery
    The right timing for a revision surgery is within 6–12 months after the initial surgery, after the breast tissues have sufficiently settled.
    * If severe complications have arisen, sooner revision may be needed.
  • Proper aftercare that treats
    the mind as well
    Stable aftercare is necessary to treat the psychological damages caused by the previous surgery (e.g., scarring, pain).

Many reasons for a revision:
the priority is to precisely identify the cause

There are many reasons a patient seeks revision breast surgery—complications, dissatisfaction, change of heart, etc.
—and the first step of revision breast surgery is to accurately identify why the patient seeks revision surgery and what the cause is.

BANOBAGI has equipment, such as full-HD endoscope, high-resolution ultrasound, and Mammotome,
that can more precisely examine the breasts.

Moreover, our breast surgery specialist team has access to various methods of improvement for each type of revision surgery.
This allows us to provide more precise and satisfying revision surgeries.

  • Revision Surgery Because of Capsular Contracture
    Revision Surgery Because of Capsular Contracture

    Capsular contracture occurs when our body encapsulates the implant with epithelium. A common, mild contracture is not a big problem, but if the epithelium hardens and becomes severe, it makes the texture unnatural and may cause implant warping or pain. In such cases, it is important to prevent recurrence by precisely removing the existing implant along with the epithelium and replacing it with the type of implant that is designed to prevent capsular contracture.

  • Revision Surgery Because of Asymmetry
    Revision Surgery Because of Asymmetry

    Most asymmetry in breasts is caused by not precisely examining the degree of the patient’s bodily development or inserting the implant under incorrect calculation. Little asymmetry is natural in humans: for precise breast surgery, it is important to accurately identify and calculate the degree of asymmetry and selecting the ideal implant size. Moreover, a revision surgery because of asymmetry has much to consider—not only the sizes of the breasts but also their locations and asymmetry in shape. Therefore, a revision does not simply stop at resizing the implants. Improvement must be made by factoring in the implant location, pectoral muscle thickness, and many other elements under a professional eye.

  • Revision Surgery Because of Implant Damage
    Revision Surgery Because of Implant Damage

    In normal cases, implant damage rarely occurs. However, sometimes under exceptional circumstances (e.g., accidents) or if an old implant is used, the implant may become damaged and require revision surgery. When this happens, it is important to thoroughly remove the implant and its fillings, depending on the type of implant used, and replace the damaged implant with a type that has less risk of being damaged, preventing future recurrence.

  • Revision Surgery Because of Dissatisfaction in Shape or Size
    Revision Surgery Because of Dissatisfaction in Shape or Size

    Dissatisfaction about the breast shape often occurs when a wrong-shaped implant is used. To prevent this, the surgeon must have a good understanding of various implants and be able to propose an implant with a shape and size that is best suited for the patient’s individual body type. The ideal breast shape is a soft curve that increases in volume toward the lower end, and newer implants that are naturally shape-shifting according to the gravity, just like natural breasts, allow for more satisfying revision surgeries.

  • Revision Surgery Because of Textural Dissatisfaction
    Revision Surgery Because of Textural Dissatisfaction

    In breast augmentation, the texture is largely dependent on the implant itself. Therefore, it is important that the patient examine the cohesiveness and the elasticity of the implants beforehand, and the surgeon should take the patient’s pectoral muscles, fat and skin conditions, and many other things into consideration: to select an implant that gives a more natural texture.

BANOBAGI plus Motiva means a more satisfying revision surgery

In breast augmentation, the implant’s functionality is as important as the surgeon’s skills.
Even if the surgery itself is conducted with extensive experience and skills in breast surgery, if the implant does not function as intended, the results are bound to be disappointing.

This is why BANOBAGI has chosen Motiva implants for our revision surgeries.

Motiva is a relatively new brand of breast implant that addresses the issues of existing breast augmentation methods. Its signature “silky-texture” surface reduces the possibility of capsular contracture to near zero, and its durability is FDA- and ISO-approved. Moreover, it changes its shape gently according to your movement, creating more natural-looking and satisfying results. BANOBAGI offers a more individualized and satisfying revision breast surgery with Motiva: high-elasticity implants that come in various sizes.

We provide a more detailed care:
because we understand your troubles

Revision surgery can even be more stressful than the initial surgery, because the stress and the disappointing results of the previous surgery add onto the psychological pressure of having to go through another surgery. BANOBAGI offers thorough and systematic surgery and aftercare to make the process easier for you. BANOBAGI’s quick and precise surgery reduces unnecessary tissue damage, swelling, and bruising, and we try to use the existing incision window as much as possible in the revision surgery to not create any further scarring. Even if additional incisions are necessary, we make them under the breasts or in the armpits to make the scars nearly invisible. After the surgery, our collaboration with BANOBAGI Dermatology Clinic provides intensive scarring care, and we also offer a systematized aftercare program—including massages and recovery treatments—to prevent capsular contracture.

After surgery, patients may experience pain, but it will diminish over time.
Patients may experience tightness in the area.
For some time after surgery, patients should avoid chest-expanding movements such as raising the arms high or spreading them wide.
To prevent infection and complications, patients should avoid smoking or drinking for two weeks after surgery.
