Breast revision surgery can improve the results of a previous breast augmentation or breast implant procedure. Over time, you might decide that you would like to replace your implants with new ones, change implant size, or address issues due to age. At VPSI in Las Vegas, NV, our doctors offer breast revision surgery to alleviate discomfort caused by capsular contracture, address breast asymmetry, and more.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Revision?
To begin the breast revision process, we invite you to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors. You will receive friendly and welcoming care from the initial phone call through your visit to our office. Our practice is a judgment-free zone, and no matter your body type or your aesthetic goals, we want to ensure that you are a good candidate for a safe, successful procedure.
A Breast Revision is Great If You:
- Are dissatisfied with your breast implants
- Have specific health concerns related to your breast implants
- Have realistic expectations about the breast revision process

What is the Difference Between Breast Revision and Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a procedure intended to enhance the volume of your breasts with either implants or fat transfer. In comparison, breast revision corrects specific breast issues related to the breast implants themselves, and it often involves replacing older implants with new implants.
Taking the First Steps
The best way to learn more about your breast revision options and verify that you are a candidate for a safe and successful procedure is to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors.
During this appointment, we will ask questions about your medical history, perform a physical examination, and answer any questions you may have about the procedure. We will also walk you through treatment options and design a clinical plan that addresses all of your concerns.

The Breast Revision Process Explained
Every breast revision surgery is unique and based on your specific aesthetic or reconstructive goals. Your surgery will begin with your arrival at our surgery center in Las Vegas, NV where our friendly team will get you prepped and ready.
The specifics of the procedure vary according to patient needs but will involve a small incision, excess scar tissue removal, and implants extracted. When desired, we will also place new implants after implant removal. Before the surgery, your doctor will discuss anesthesia options to promote your comfort and safety.

Recovery and Aftercare
We recommend resting and healing for about a week before resuming normal activities and taking a whole month off before continuing strenuous exercise. Swelling and tenderness may occur over the first few days of recovery but should subside on their own. We will provide pain management options to help with any discomfort and offer aftercare instructions to facilitate a smooth and expedient recovery.
