Breast augmentation is a highly personalized surgical procedure that involves the use of different techniques and approaches in order to give the patient their desired results. The size and type of breast implant also plays a large role when it comes to the final results. So, what do you do when you are not happy with the results of your breast augmentation, or an issue has occurred that is negatively affecting your results? In these cases, breast revision surgery can be performed to address these issues.
What Is Breast Revision Surgery?
Breast revision is a surgical procedure that is performed when there is a complication following breast augmentation or if the patient is not happy with the results of their breast augmentation. It can be performed for cosmetic purposes or to address more serious issues with the breast implant.
One of the most common reasons breast revision is performed is to address a damaged or deflated breast implant. In the case of a damaged implant, an incision will be made along the same place where the prior incision was made, the ruptured breast implant will be removed, and a new breast implant will be inserted into the breast. An implant will also be replaced in cases where capsular contracture has occurred.
In some cases, the initial results provided may either be sub-par or not what the patient desired. Breast revision surgery can be performed to replace the implants if they are too small or too big, or to reposition them to improve their appearance. Aging and weight loss can also impact the appearance of the breast after breast augmentation surgery so breast revision can be performed to address these issues as well.
