With any surgery, the risk exists for less-than-ideal results. If you are considering breast implant revision surgery, know that it doesn’t mean you did anything wrong the first time you had breast augmentation. Whether or not your complications stem from having surgery performed by a less experienced surgeon, receiving misguided advice for sizing, pregnancy, weight changes, aging, or just sheer luck, you didn’t do this to yourself. With the right cosmetic surgeon, chances are that with revision surgery you will be able to get the beautiful results you were hoping for the first time around.Before & After View Patient Results & Save Your Favorites >

What Problems Can Revision Surgery Address?
Whether you desire a size change or are experiencing asymmetry, deflation, or a complication from surgery, Dr. Pancholi can help you address your concerns. Some of the most common reasons for implant revision include:
- Breast Implant Deflation
- Implant Malposition (poorly placed or asymmetrical implants)
- Capsular Contracture
- Desire for Size Change
How Can I Make Sure I Get the Improvements I Want?
Many factors are involved in improving the overall appearance of breast implants. While it’s always important to choose a cosmetic surgeon with experience in the procedure you are having, this is especially true for breast implant revision. Since your breast tissue has already been altered, you need a cosmetic breast surgeon who has the knowledge and surgical skill to achieve optimal results for your unique circumstances.
To make the necessary improvements, Dr. Pancholi takes into consideration a multitude of factors, including:
- The type of breast implant used in your initial augmentation
- How much breast tissue you have
- Skin integrity
- Your current weight, chest and ribcage contour, and proportions
- Placement and position of the breast implant
- How many breast surgeries you’ve had already
Having performed many hundreds of breast revision procedures, Dr. Pancholi has the experience, knowledge, and tools to achieve dramatic improvements even for more challenging cases. Whenever possible, he will remove breast implants en bloc, which means he removes the scar tissue (capsule) and implant in one piece, with the implant still sealed inside. This ensures that all old breast implant matter is removed during surgery, before a new implant is placed.
In many cases, he will incorporate Strattice Tissue Matrix to add coverage and support to weakened or thin breast tissues. Learn more about how Dr. Pancholi uses Strattice for breast revision surgery »
Will Insurance Cover Breast Revision Surgery?
As breast augmentation is considered a cosmetic procedure, your health insurance will probably not cover breast implant revision. However, both breast implant manufacturers that Dr. Pancholi utilizes, Allergan and Mentor, offer basic and premium lifetime product warranties on their breast implants for every patient who has their gummy bear, silicone gel, or saline implants. The basic warranty covers the cost of new breast implants should yours deflate or rupture.
