The results of breast augmentation change over time. Breast implants may require replacement during your lifetime, so you should plan to have future visits with your plastic surgeon to discuss potential revision procedures.
The breasts can change due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors and other natural processes. If you become dissatisfied with your breast augmentation results, revision surgery may improve your appearance.
What is Breast Revision Augmentation?
Breast revision augmentation is a surgical procedure that removes or replaces breast implants placed during breast augmentation. The procedure may be indicated for medical reasons or it may be the patient’s personal choice.
For best results, different cosmetic procedures may be performed during or after breast implant removal. For example, breast implant removal is frequently followed by replacement with a different implant type (such as silicone gel) or breast lift surgery.
Deciding if Breast Revision Surgery is Right for You
There are a variety of reasons to consider revision breast surgery. You may decide that breast implants no longer fit into your lifestyle or you may decide that a different implant size or type is appropriate.
Common reasons include:
- Change in size preferences
- Switch from saline to silicone
- Decision to remove implants
There are also medical reasons for breast implant removal, which may include trauma, disease, or a surgical complication. Possible complications include capsular contracture, implant malposition, visible implant rippling, ruptured implant, and nipple malposition.
