Beverly Hills Breast Revision With Dr. Gabrielle B. Davis
If you’re considering getting breast implants, it’s essential to realize they are not necessarily lifelong devices. In general, these devices can last 10 to 15 years. Your unique needs and desires will often inform your decision to exchange or remove your implants.
You may have questions about the breast implant exchange or removal implant process. With her unmatched expertise and sincere compassion, Dr. Gabrielle B. Davis is a Beverly Hills breast revision surgeon who delivers high-quality results for all her patients.
What Is Breast Revision in Beverly Hills?
The term “breast revision” refers to any procedure aimed at exchanging or removing breast implants. By design, breast implant exchange surgery swaps old breast implants for new ones or removes the devices altogether.
Often, the goal of breast revision procedures is to update the implant material to enhance breast appearance. Along with removing or exchanging the implant, breast revision surgery could also include:
- Concurrent breast lift or reduction
- Reposition of the implant
- Increase or decrease the implant’s size or shape
- Removal of the Implant Completely
What Are the Benefits of a Breast Revision in Los Angeles?
Breast implants and the overlying skin can change over time, affecting your breasts’ appearance or feel. Breast revision procedures address these issues by exchanging old implants for new ones.
Overall, a breast revision can help:
- Change the size of breasts
- Address pain from capsular contraction
- Address concerns of implant migration or rupture
- Upgrade implant material, shape, texture, or size
It’s also possible to remove breast implants if you no longer want implants or if scar tissue becomes an issue. Most often, scar tissue that forms following implant placement is not a problem. However, scar tissue or a compromised silicone implant can harden and cause discomfort.
Am I a Good Candidate for Beverly Hills Breast Revision?
In general, candidates for breast implant exchange in Los Angeles are women in good mental and physical health who are looking to improve their breast implants’ appearance or are concerned about their current implants’ integrity.
Breast revision is a highly individualized procedure, and there are many reasons to consider removing breast implants, including:
- Hardening scar tissue
- Pain from the implants
- Imaging suggests a leaking or ruptured implant

What Can I Expect During a Beverly Hills Breast Revision Procedure?
Due to the unique nature of breast revision, Dr. Davis’ expertise allows her to customize these procedures to fulfill each patient’s needs. While each breast revision surgery will have unique details, you can expect some general steps during the process.
Check-In and Anesthesia
Our perioperative team will greet you at check-in. Dr. Davis will evaluate you, perform her surgical markings, and ensure you are relaxed and comfortable. Once you are safely under sedation, Dr. Davis will begin your breast revision procedure as determined during your consultation.
Breast Implant Exchange
For breast implant exchange, Dr. Davis will create the appropriate incisions based on your anatomy and circumstances. She’ll safely remove the old implant and insert the new one with a sterile, no-touch technique. The surgery’s duration will depend on your specific procedural plan.
Breast Implant Removal
For breast implant removal, Dr. Davis will create an incision along the lower fold of your breast and around or below the areola. She will remove your implants and the breast capsule, or scar tissue, with a combination of techniques. The surgery’s length will depend on your specific procedural plan.
Breast Revision Aftercare
Immediately following surgery, Dr. Davis will cover your breasts with a soft wrap to wear for the next three days. After that point, we’ll fit you with a surgical or sports bra to wear for approximately three to four weeks to minimize swelling. You may need regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Davis for at least one year.

Beverly Hills and Los Angeles Breast Revision FAQs
Swelling may obscure your breast revision results for a few weeks. As breast revision results are uniquely individual, healing time will vary, and it may take some time for swelling to decrease, sensation to return, and scars to fade. It could take up to six to 12 months before your eventual results are visible and your breasts feel “normal.”
Following a breast implant removal, your results will vary based on several factors:
- Implant size
- Scar tissue quantity
- Quality and quantity of remaining breast tissue
As with any surgical procedure, it is critical to thoroughly follow Dr. Davis’ pre- and post-operative instructions regarding physical activities to ensure optimal results.
Due to breast revision’s tailored nature, your cost will depend on your unique procedural plan. Dr. Davis will provide an estimate for a more accurate breast revision cost in Beverly Hills during your consultation.
During your breast revision surgery, you will be under anesthesia, so you should not feel discomfort. Following your procedure, Dr. Davis will prescribe you pain medication. Be sure to address your pain concerns with Dr. Davis during your consultation.
