Breast Revision in Fredericksburg, VA
What Is Breast Revision Surgery?
Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S., and in the majority of cases, it results in terrific outcomes. However, sometimes, a patient can be dissatisfied with the appearance of her breasts and may require breast revision treatment. Keep in mind not all revision surgeries are due to practitioner error. While few breast augmentations end with an unpleasing outcome, some women want a larger or smaller implant while some may have a defect and prefer to have the implant revised or removed altogether. Furthermore, some women require revision surgery for a specific condition, such as implant removal, capsulotomy, capsulectomy, or capsulorrhaphy. Fredericksburg, VA plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki provide breast revision surgery after giving an in-depth assessment at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg so that the correct outcome is attained.

Breast Revision Reviews
Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!
I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!
I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!
I recently underwent a transformative journey with Dr. Aflaki, a highly skilled plastic surgeon, on March 15th. I opted for a tummy tuck and breast augmentation, and I must say that my experience exceeded all expectations. From start to finish, Dr. Aflaki’s commitment to precision and the compassionate care provided by his team made my surgical experience truly remarkable. Dr. Aflaki’s attention to detail was evident from the moment we began discussing the procedure. He took the time to understand my aesthetic goals and concerns, ensuring that I felt comfortable and informed throughout the entire process. His expertise in the field of plastic surgery was apparent, and he skillfully guided me towards the best approach for achieving my desired results. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Aflaki’s expertise shone through as he performed the tummy tuck and breast augmentation with incredible precision. His surgical skills combined with his meticulous attention to detail resulted in outcomes that surpassed my expectations. Specifically since he had to correct errors made in my breast augmentation years 15 years ago. His ability to adapt to the unexpected was outstanding. The results were natural and beautifully enhanced my figure, leaving me feeling confident and delighted with the transformation. I must also commend Dr. Aflaki’s team of nurses who were kind, attentive, and exceptionally supportive during my recovery period. They ensured that I received the utmost care and comfort, promptly addressing any concerns or questions that arose. Their empathy and dedication made a significant difference in my recovery journey, and I am incredibly grateful for their presence. Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Aflaki as a plastic surgeon. His attention to detail, expertise, and genuine care for his patients set him apart. As you can see on his great collection of before and after pictures on instagram. My tummy tuck and breast augmentation experience was truly exceptional, and I am thrilled with the results. If you are seeking a highly skilled surgeon who prioritizes patient satisfaction and surrounds themselves with a compassionate team, Dr. Aflaki is undoubtedly an excellent choice.
The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
Am I a Candidate for a Breast Revision?
Should you have any trouble (either medical or cosmetic) about your breast implants, please make an appointment for a consultation at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg to talk about your goals and to develop your unique plan for breast revision surgery. Whether it's scarring, breast drooping, rippling, or unbalanced breasts, revision surgery can help correct the problem and create a more pleasing and healthy outcome. This operation may also help if you are wanting to alter the implant style, size, or address another aspect of your breasts.
How much does breast revision surgery cost?
Your cost for breast revision surgery will vary greatly depending on the complexity of your procedure. During your consultation, a team member will listen carefully to your concerns and goals before completing a physical exam to assess your implants. Then, they will talk about your options before developing your surgical plan. The cost of breast revision surgery will be based on the complexity of the procedure plus what you choose for your new implants. It's best to focus on getting the desired results by finding an experienced provider rather than the cheapest surgeon. To help make your surgery easy to afford, Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg accepts many different payment methods, and we can give you information on low-interest medical financing.
Do I have to change my implants?
Although implants can last a long time, they will require replacement eventually. After augmentation surgery, it's important to get your implants checked at least once a year so a team member can help you determine if your implants need to be replaced. With so many advances in medical technology, you may prefer the new implant types and shapes to get the best outcome during breast revision surgery.
What about loose skin?
If you are getting your implants removed or are changing to a significantly smaller size of implants, you may need to have excess skin removed during your surgery. After listening to your goals and evaluating your current implants, a team member can discuss adding a breast lift to remove loose skin. If you lose much weight, get pregnant, or breastfeed after breast augmentation surgery, a revision with a lift can help you get better results.
