What is a breast revision?

When one chooses to pursue breast surgery, it is usually with the intention that it will go right the first time. When things go wrong and you wind up unhappy with your results, it can feel like the end of the world.

You may feel depressed, betrayed, hopeless or anxious, and these are all normal reactions. However, there is an excellent solution to this, known as breast revision.

Breast revision, performed by an experienced veteran such as Board-certified surgeon, Dr. Klein near Atlanta and Alpharetta, can restore your breasts to a beautiful, natural appearance, giving you the ideal result that you desired in the first place as well as among the best breast revision Atlanta and Alpharetta have to offer. Dr. Klein is empathetic and understanding, and he is aware that going through a second surgery can be daunting. However, he is deeply dedicated to solving your issues with your breasts so you can start enjoying life again.

What are some of the most common reasons for undergoing breast revision?

Capsular contracture

This condition occurs when the tissue surrounding the implant begins to shrink, causing the implant to harden. It can both look and feel irregular, sometimes leading to severe discomfort.

Ruptured implants

Both saline and silicone implants pose the possibility of rupture, which can create a deflated look in the breasts. The implants can either be replaced, or the doctor can perform fat grafting to recontour the breasts naturally.


With symmastia, a form of malpositioning, the implants float inwards to create a “uniboob”. This can be corrected with our breast revision in Alpharetta.

Double bubble

When a breast implant migrates downwards to fall below the breast crease, this is called double bubble. Dr. Klein has the expertise and skill to flawlessly repair the work of less qualified surgeons.

Implant malposition

This describes any situation in which the implants have migrated away from their original position. Implants may shift inwards, outwards, downwards or upwards, creating a variety of unsavory looks. Dr. Klein can help fix malpositioning and create a successful outcome that appears natural and balanced.

Implant rippling

While rippling tends to be most common with saline implants, it can also happen with silicone. Dr. Klein can help to reverse rippling that is either visible or merely palpable.

Who makes a good breast revision candidate?

Anyone who is unhappy with the results of their primary breast surgery may be a good candidate for breast revision, provided they are in good mental and physical health, a non-smoker, and they have realistic expectations for improvement rather than perfection. Dr. Klein will meet with you for a confidential consultation near Atlanta and Alpharetta to discuss the possibilities for breast revision.

What can I expect from my recovery?

Recovery from breast revision will mimic recovery from your primary surgery. You will receive pain medications for several days to help ease any discomfort, and you will be asked to rest and refrain from any rigorous activity. You can expect bruising and swelling, as is common with any surgery, but these symptoms will subside within a few weeks. Clients generally return to work after 2 weeks.

What is the cost of a breast revision?

Each breast revision is different, depending on the reasons the client is undergoing it, so costs will vary. Dr. Klein will walk you through all the costs and fees during your confidential consultation, and our office will assist you with applying for financing from reputable healthcare lenders.

Re-Opening May 4th Update:

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken the basic CDC recommendations and have added the following extra measures to protect our patients:

  1. We are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for new and established patients.
  2. We ask all patients to stay in their car and call us upon arrival. Once on-site, your temperature will be taken along with a screening questionnaire, you will be provided hand sanitizer, and then escorted directly to an exam room or empty reception area. We ask all patients to wear a surgical mask or face covering to their appointment. As a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our large size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing.
  3. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the coronavirus.
  4. All staff are screened daily with a temperature check and symptom survey. All staff are required to wear a surgical mask, gloves, and perform frequent hand washing.
  5. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas hourly (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant. All exam rooms and highly touched surfaces are sanitized in between patients.
  6. Because of the increased sanitizing requirements, we have reduced the number of patients that will be seen every hour and spacing out appointments.
  7. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we do not have actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  8. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until June.
  9. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please reschedule your appointments and call your family doctor.
  10. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
