Breast Revision First Step

What’s the first step?

The first step to a breast implant revision in San Jose and the surrounding Bay Area is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Li. This is where you’ll discuss your concerns, goals, and any issues you may be experiencing with your current breast implants. Dr. Li will evaluate your individual case, examine your breasts, and recommend the most appropriate course of action to achieve the results you desire with a plan that is structured and dedicated just for you. 

What to expect on the day of Breast Implant Revision surgery

On the day of your breast implant revision surgery, you’ll arrive at the surgery center in Los Gatos and check in with our friendly staff. You’ll then be taken to the operating room, where you’ll receive anesthesia to ensure you’re comfortable throughout the surgery. 

Dr. Li will perform the necessary revisions to your breast implants based on the discussed plan, which may involve removing or replacing the implants, adjusting their position, adjusting the pockets, placing an internal bra, performing breast lifting, performing fat transfer, or addressing any complications.

For Breast Implant Removal Dr. Li will make incisions, tailored to your case, to access the previous Breast Implants. He will then carefully remove the implants, along with any scar tissue or capsule as necessary before closing your incisions with sutures.

For Breast Implant Replacement or Adjustment, Dr. Li and his surgical team will make incisions to access the previous breast implants, remove them and replace them with new ones, and make any other adjustments as necessary to the breasts. This may involve re-positioning the implants, re-shaping or changing the pockets, performing breast lifting, performing fat transfer, or placing an internal bra to support your new implants.

Once the procedure is complete, you’ll be taken to a recovery area where you’ll be monitored closely as you wake up from anesthesia and provided with a detailed post-procedure plan.

Breast Implant Revision recovery

During the first few days of recovery from your breast implant revision, you can expect swelling, bruising, and some minor to moderate discomfort. Dr. Li may recommend wearing a surgical bra or compression garment for support and to reduce swelling.

Over the first month, swelling and bruising will gradually subside, but it’s important to continue following our team’s instructions regarding activity levels and wound care. Long-term recovery may take several weeks to months, so be patient and diligent in achieving results.
