The last thing you need after battling breast cancer is a reconstruction that didn’t meet your expectations. VPSI offers breast reconstruction revision to help you achieve complete aesthetic restoration even after you’ve already undergone a previous reconstruction. Our practice is the highest volume reconstructive microsurgery practice in Las Vegas and the state of Nevada, and specializes in the most complex breast revision cases. We can provide various reconstruction techniques to address your aesthetic concerns and ongoing cancer care needs.
The Benefits of a Breast Reconstruction Revision
There are several reasons why you may benefit from a breast reconstruction revision at VPSI:
- Receive advanced cancer care from our experienced providers
- Get the right type of breast reconstruction to match your needs and expectations
- Correct any aesthetic issues with your current reconstruction
- Resolve any medical complications due to your reconstruction
- Remove and replace implants that have ruptured or caused an infection
How Do I Know If I Need a Revision?
During your initial consultation, one of our doctors will perform a physical examination, review your medical history, and advise whether you are a good candidate for a safe and successful breast reconstruction revision.
Candidates for this procedure usually fall into one or more of the following categories:
- A previous attempt at breast reconstruction failed (for example, implants had to be removed due to infection).
- Your previous mastectomy or reconstruction was performed in a way that led to suboptimal aesthetic results.
- The initial reconstruction led to complications, such as a ruptured implant.
Taking the First Steps
If you are interested in having a breast reconstruction revision, the first step is meeting with one of our doctors. The initial consultation appointment will involve a discussion about your previous procedure, cancer treatment, and personal goals for reconstruction. When you come to VPSI, you will benefit from the friendliness of our staff and the significant reconstructive experience of our doctors.

The Revision Process Explained
We will customize your reconstructive surgery to meet your specific needs. For example, if you need to have breast tissue rebuilt following a skin breakdown or infection, you may benefit from a diep flap. Our doctors can harvest tissue from one part of the body and transfer it to the breasts, shaping and contouring it for the best cosmetic results. We may need to remove failed implants in other situations, replacing them with either new implants or fat grafts.
Regardless of the specific type of breast reconstruction revision, VPSI partners with our anesthesiologists for enhanced recovery protocols to minimize post-operative pain and get you back to baseline as soon as possible.

Recovery and Aftercare
As with any type of plastic surgery, it will be necessary to allow your body time to rest and heal. You will need one to two weeks of recovery before returning to work or routine activities. Minor side effects such as swelling and bruising can be anticipated, and pain medications can alleviate tenderness or discomfort.
