Patients who have had breast reconstruction in a prior procedure (either implant or flaps) may require revisionary surgery or additional procedures to improve appearance, correct any deformity, or provide better symmetry. Simple options include fat grafting, scar revision, flap donor site contouring, or breast implant revision. Some patients with initial implant reconstruction will choose to remove implants and proceed with flap reconstruction. You can expect a breast reconstruction revision procedure, whether simple or involving multiple stages, to be covered by your health insurance.
