Revision Breast Surgery
Breast augmentation is a very popular procedure which can do great things for a woman's appearance and confidence. However, some breast implant patients will need revision surgery – either for cosmetic or medical reasons – at some point after their initial surgery.

Choosing Revision Breast Surgery from Dr. Fisher
Breast implant revision is not something most women want to talk about (or think about) when considering breast augmentation in Nashville, or breast reconstruction with implants. However, many women who have breast implants will need revision. Dr. Fisher's Nashville breast augmentation patients rarely require revision, but occasionally choose to exchange their implants for a different size or type. Dr. Fisher treats patients who have had breast surgery elsewhere who require revision for a variety of reasons, including:
- Dissatisfaction with initial surgical results
- Complications from previous surgery or surgeries
- Implant failure
Dr. Fisher receives regular referrals for breast revision surgery, due to the high level of surgical skill required for these procedures. Revision surgery may present unique challenges, such as excessive scar tissue, the presence of leaked silicone (from prior-generation silicone implants), and compromised tissue quality or quantity. Some revision breast surgery patients have undergone multiple surgeries, and may be running out of options for beautiful breasts. Dr. Fisher is renowned for his ability to develop a treatment plan that can give these women the natural looking breasts that they want and deserve.
Your Revision Procedure & Recovery
Every woman's revision surgery will be different. Some patients require only minor adjustments while others need more extensive corrections. An acknowledged educator and authority in the field of breast surgery, Dr. Fisher will determine an approach to your revision that is tailored to your unique needs and concerns.
Dr. Fisher will give you detailed pre and post-operative instructions, which you should follow closely. Your procedure will be performed under general anesthesia at our exceptionally safe and private surgery center. While an initial breast augmentation typically takes about an hour, a revision may take longer, depending on the corrections being made.
Your recovery will be similar to breast augmentation recovery, with moderate discomfort for 2 to 3 days, and swelling and bruising that may last for 1 to 2 weeks. Dr. Fisher will monitor your progress through regular follow-up appointments in order to assure the best possible outcome from your revision.
