Revision breast surgery can be needed for a variety of reasons including:
- Changing old implants.
- Breasts have changed due to pregnancy, significant weight fluctuation, or aging.
- Implant rupture
- Capsular contracture, bottoming out or other complications
- Not happy with your result from a previous surgery
- Time for a new look
Recovery 3-5 days
29-year-old had breast revision surgery to correct a ruptured implant. She had deflated saline implant for several weeks. Both implants were replaced with 350cc HP Silicone Implants using the same breast crease incision.
This 36-yr old woman had breast revision surgery to correct bilateral capsular contracture. She went from 600cc high profile saline implants to 400cc textured silicone implants. A lollipop breast lift was also performed.
This 46 year old patient was unhappy with the size and shape of her breasts after having breast augmentation with another surgeon. Dr. Cruise performed an anchor breast lift and exchanged her existing silicone implants for a smaller size. He used his complete muscle coverage techniques to create a nice rounded shape with upper fullness.
Revision breast surgery is more common than one might think and is requested for a variety of reasons. Two of the most frequent reasons Dr. Cruise hears from women coming to him for a breast redo are because of a complication from a prior surgery and being unhappy with the result from a previous surgery.
General recovery time is 3-5 days, but can be longer if other procedures such as a tummy tuck are performed at the same time.

I went to Dr. Cruise's office after getting a bad breast augmentation from another doctor. I was fearful of going through another surgery, especially after the bad experience I previously had, but Dr. Cruise and his staff really made me feel confident. They had me come in for 2 consultations just to make sure that I was comfortable. Dr. Cruise is very professional, knowledgeable, and has good bedside manner. He knows what you want to look like, and what looks good. I was impressed with the reviews I had read about him. His staff is excellent. They are very knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. If it wasn't for all of them I wouldn't have had such a great experience.
I think that Dr. Cruise is truly an awesome surgeon. I came out of surgery in disbelief because of how little pain I felt. The Surgery Center was amazing also. The staff was wonderful, put me at ease, and took great care of me. - Amber, breast lift w/ implant exchange
