Occasionally, women have a previous breast augmentation, or other breast surgery, only to find that now their procedure needs correcting due to a complication or some other reason. Dr. Prichard offers breast revisions to patients who need physical revision from a seasoned professional.
About the procedure
Generally, this kind of surgery is utilized to correct a problem from a prior breast augmentation procedure that may have been executed poorly, or by an inexperienced surgeon. Dr. Prichard strives to address any mishaps you may be dealing with, and give you some of the best breast revision Phoenix can provide.
Standard breast revision surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, using IV sedation or general anesthesia, which is exclusively delivered under the care of a board-certified anesthesiologist. A breast revision surgery is meant to address and take care of such concerns listed below:
- Hardened scar tissue (also referred to as capsular contracture). This can cause your breasts to harden or appear distorted.
- Asymmetrical nipples. Some women discover that their nipples, or even their implants are uneven in size or placement, after undergoing surgery.
- Deflated implants. While it is uncommon today, every now and then, an implant can leak or burst, which can result in sagging looking breasts.
- Awkwardly positioned implants. Seen occasionally with inexperienced surgeons; an implant will be positioned too high, too low or even too close together.
Prior to surgery, you and Dr. Prichard will determine the size and material of your replacement implants. Using meticulously placed, small incisions, for minimal scarring, Dr. Prichard will repair any complications that may have been bred from earlier breast procedures. Once these complications have been properly taken care of, Dr. Prichard will carefully and precisely place your new breast implants.
You will be able to return home the same day of your surgery. Your breasts will be securely wrapped in bandages, to promote the healing process, along with helping to minimize swelling. It is completely normal for your breasts to be swollen and a little bruised for the first week or so. Typically, most patients are able to return to their daily activities within a week or so. You will need to avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous activity for approximately 4 to 5 weeks.

During your consultation, Dr. Prichard will discuss exactly what it is you’re hoping to rectify with a breast revision.
