What is a Revision Breast Reconstruction?
A revision breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure that is performed after an initial breast reconstruction, either to improve the results or to correct unsatisfactory results. The revision procedure is a chance to fine-tune any results, enhancing the symmetry of the breasts and completing any other final steps. This can include nipple reconstruction, fat grafting, or the placement of permanent breast implants. Each patient's breast reconstruction journey is different, but at Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we are prepared to help you throughout this process and achieve the best results possible.
How Much Does a Breast Reconstruction Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every breast reconstruction procedure.

As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit our office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer plastic surgery financing to help make our treatments more affordable.

What is the Revision Breast Reconstruction Surgery Like?
Revision breast reconstruction surgery is performed with general anesthesia in order to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the procedure. The exact approach to treatment will depend on your current condition and your previous breast reconstruction procedure. The revision procedure may include nipple reconstruction, fat grafting, or the placement of breast implants. It may also include other surgical techniques to enhance the symmetry of the breasts. During your consultation, we will let you know what you can expect from your revision breast reconstruction surgery.
What is Recovery Like Following a Revision Breast Reconstruction?
Recovery following a revision breast reconstruction is different for every patient. In general, you will probably feel a little sore and tired for several days following your surgery. The first 24 to 72 hours after your procedure is when you will experience the most discomfort. However, your breasts may remain swollen and tender for a month or longer. You should avoid strenuous activities for at least one month, but it is likely that you may be allowed to resume light activities after about one week and return to work within a few days. We will provide you with additional information regarding your recovery during your consultation.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Revision Breast Reconstruction?
