We are committed to helping women who have suffered physical or emotional complications as a result of breast augmentation. With revisional breast surgery, our Brisbane team – led by Dr. Philip Richardson – can remove breast implants that have ruptured or correct the results of a previous surgery so that the patient’s aesthetic goals are satisfied. Unfortunately, some women experience asymmetry or misshapen breasts after breast augmentation; with revisional breast surgery, these complications can be rectified. If you have previously undergone breast augmentation and require revisional breast surgery, please contact Brisbane Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery today. We are tremendously proud of the work that we do, and take seriously the health and happiness of our patients.

Revisional Breast Surgery

We perform multiple revisional breast surgery procedures for the benefit of our patients, including:

  • Breast Implant Removal – If you would like to remove your breast implants for personal or medical reasons, Dr. Richardson can do so safely and efficiently. To minimise scarring, our team will often utilise the existing incision location, and can extract existing scar tissue to minimise the evidence of surgery
  • Breast Implant Replacement – There are a number of reasons why a woman might replace her breast implants: because she prefers a different type of breast implant, is seeking a different size or shape of breast implant, or because her implants are deteriorating. Whatever your reasons, if you are considering breast implant replacement, Dr. Richardson and our Brisbane team can explain the details of revisional breast surgery in detail and discuss your goals with you in person so that your needs are met.

We are sensitive to the fact that patients who are undergoing revisional breast surgery are likely doing so either because they are dissatisfied with their previous procedure or because they have suffered complications as a result of a previous procedure; you can rest assured that Dr. Richardson and our team will take every precaution to ensure your health and satisfaction.

Risks and Benefits of Breast Surgery Revision

Undergoing revisional breast surgery can have a tremendous impact on your life. The self-confidence that can be gained with breast surgery can give you a new outlook on life – you may be more social, more open to new experiences, or more likely to spend time taking part in activities that you previously were hesitant to, such as going to the beach in a swimsuit. For women who have already undergone breast surgery and found that their expectations weren’t met, revisional breast surgery may finally deliver the results they hoped for.

We advise all of our patients however that all surgeries carry some degree of risk. Being mindful of these risks and taking them into consideration prior to making a decision on treatment can help a patient develop realistic expectations. Risks include scarring, implant rupture, excessive bleeding, capsular contracture, asymmetry, and implant shifting.
