Some women, who have undergone breast augmentation surgery, may have to consider breast revision surgery later on down the road. With this procedure, the breast implants are removed and/or replaced due to a number of factors. There are also times when a woman needs to address her sagging breasts along with revision surgery, which is accomplished with a breast revision with mastopexy (lift) surgery. Inland Empire board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Childers, will remove or replace the implants, trim away extraneous skin and lift the breasts higher onto the chest wall for a more natural, perkier look. After the surgery, the patient will look better and feel more confident in her appearance.
"Had my lips done Saturday Amber was amazing she was gentle and very professional I definitely recommend her loving my new lips thanks Amber."- L.N. / Yelp / Oct 18, 2016
"I have been wanting to do something about the "bags" under my eyes for years, so when we moved to Upland, I was excited to see that there was a medical skin spa right near our new home. I made an appointment for a consultation just to see what they could do for me. From the second I walked in, I knew that I would be back again! First off, the little reception/waiting area is pink and feminine and beautiful and the ladies at the front desk are so welcoming and kind. Not in a fake way, but genuinely warm and friendly (which is very rare these days)! Amazing ambiance. There's an assortment of yummy beverages (including wine!) and lots of great magazines and pretty things to look at. Secondly, they listen to you! They work with your schedule to make an appointment for a (free!) consultation with the appropriate person and their hours are incredible! I'm a SAHM and can only go when my hubby is home from work (nights and weekends) so their hours really work for me! Thirdly, the consultation was incredibly informative. I spoke with a beautiful woman named Amber and she answered all my questions about my undereyes and recommended Juvederm for me: 1/4 syringe under each eye and the rest in my lips! Score!! I learned that my "bags" aren't bags at all, but the thinning of my facial features with age and time. She was patient with my hesitations and talked to me like a friend. She instantly put me at ease. I couldn't wait to make an appointment. Fourthly, on the day of my appointment, they took me back quickly and spread a numbing cream on my face, let it sit, and I was good to go! She even called Dr. Childers via FaceTime so I could ask him any questions before the procedure! Talk about customer service! I was so impressed. And finally, Amber was so great with the injections, they didn't even hurt and she would ask me to look in the mirror frequently to see the results, which were instant!! Amber really is an artist with that syringe!! I was so happy with the change. It's now the next day and I have no swelling or bruising, Amber is very skilled and knows exactly what she is doing. I am incredibly happy with how my face looks now, I look rested and youthful again, but still like myself. I cannot wait to go back and get Botox from Amber, and I plan to get touch ups as needed in the future. If anyone asks, I'm sending them your way, Sheer Beauty!! THANK YOU!!!"- E.L. / Yelp / May 13, 2017

The patient will be under general anesthesia during this outpatient procedure, which will be performed at an accredited surgical facility. The plastic surgeon will make an incision to remove the current implant and place an implant sizer. The surgeon will assess the breast implant pocket and correct issues as needed, such as releasing scar tissue, tightening the pocket, correcting cleavage, and fixing symmetrical issues. The implant sizer is placed in the most appropriate location on the chest, usually under the chest muscle. The sizers are filled until the desired volume is reached.
The doctor will then move to the breast lift portion of the surgery. An incision will be made, usually around the areola to the breast crease. The breast is then reshaped. The doctor will then assess the breasts’ symmetry, shape, and position in order to place the new breast implants. The breast implant sizers are removed and the new implants are placed. If a patient decided beforehand not to get new implants, none will be implanted. The incisions will be stitched and surgical tape will be placed over incisions.
After the surgery, a surgical bra and compression wrap will be placed on the patient to decrease bruising and swelling. Most patients can return home the same day. Patients commonly experience pain and discomfort which can be alleviated with pain medication. Dressings should be left on until the next-day follow-up appointment. Most stitches are dissolvable and surgical tape should be left on for a week or so. Due to swelling, your breasts may appear overly large for the first couple of weeks, but this will subside. Most patients can return to work within a few days. In about 6 months, patients will be able to fully realize the effects of the surgery with better shaped and positioned breasts.
