If you are disappointed with the outcome of a previous breast surgery, Dr. Burke can help you achieve your desired goals with Breast Revision surgery.
REVISIONS TO PRIOR BREAST SURGERY
Revision of prior breast surgery may be desired or recommended for a number of reasons:
- Your body has changed and you desire changes in the shape, size or appearance of your breasts
- Prior procedures and the visible or physical result did not meet your expectations
- You’ve experienced some complication, such as capsular contracture, visible rippling of the implant, double bubble (breast tissue sags around the implant), improper implant placement (too far apart or too close together, called symmastia)
Dr. Burke understands the frustration you experience when faced with the desire or need for Breast Revision. During your consultation, Dr. Burke will address your specific goals, concerns, and expectations. These are carefully evaluated prior to offering you an individual recommendation for correction of prior breast surgery, and an expectation of what is possible to achieve or correct.

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Burke creates exceptional results by combining the skill of an accomplished plastic surgeon with empathy and compassion.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM BREAST REVISION SURGERY
Breast revision surgery can generally be performed through the same incisions sites as your initial breast surgery. Specialized techniques and the use of tissue substitutes (or fat grafting) may be recommended if you lack tissue to cover an implant or require additional support for an implant.
This is generally an outpatient procedure, performed under general anesthesia. However, if it is combined with other procedures, it may require an overnight stay.
BREAST REVISION SURGERY RECOVERY
Recovery depends on the extent of your breast repair. You can return to light activities within 2-3 days and your regular activities within 2-3 weeks. Results can be long-term, but weight loss/gain, future pregnancy, or natural aging may alter your appearance.
