Breast implant revisions may be needed when patients want to increase their size, have results that they are not happy with or when complications arise. Breast implants that are not done properly can negatively affect a person not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally. That being said, breast implant revisions and breast implant replacements can even be a life changer for some patients.

When should I consider getting breast implant revision
surgery and what can this surgery do for me?

Anyone who is not satisfied with their current implants should be given the opportunity
to undergo a breast implant revision. Moreover, those who experience pain, discomfort, and other complications following a breast augmentation procedure should have access to a replacement or revision procedure.

If a patient’s implants have deflated due to any reason, that patient should immediately consider breast implant revision to remove and possibly even replace the implants. Deflated implants can cause a lot of problems including rupturing, leaking, and others.

A proper breast implant revision surgery can do a lot of things for clients. Getting this type of surgery can modify your current breast size, correct implant rupturing or tearing, or even change the kinds of implants you have (maybe from saline implants to silicone implants, or vice-versa). Almost everything related to breast enhancement can be accomplished with breast implant revision surgery.

It is not uncommon for patients to desire an increase in their breast size 6-12 months after their initial breast implant surgery. Many times surgeons will not operate on a female who wants implants that her body shape could not cope with. However after the initial implant, a pocket in the chest has been created, along with skin expansion, and this allows for a larger implant to follow.

What are my options when it comes to breast implant revision surgery?

Size, shape, and material are three key things to consider when you talk to your surgeon. These things MUST be mentioned for you to be able to have the breasts you’ve always dreamed of—the correct kind that will give you the results you’ve always wanted.

1. Size

The best breast implants in terms of size are those that fit your body properly—those that have the proper proportions and dimensions for your frame. When changing the size of your current implants, you should always make sure that the procedure comes out perfect.

The size of your implants will obviously depend on your preference, but almost all the plastic or cosmetic surgeons out there will say that the most natural-looking breast implants are the best options and produce the least complications.

2. Shape and Material

Shape and material are two things that always come hand-in-hand. The shape of your new implants will be determined by the kind of material used as well as the location of the said implants. There are two materials to choose from: silicone implants and the cohesive-gel silicone.

Saline implants are made of sterile salt water, which can be pre-filled depending on the preference of the patient and the surgeon, but this type of implant is becoming outdated. Silicone-filled implants, on the other hand,arepre-filled with silicone but are harder to modify. The cohesive-gel silicone implant—is made of cohesive gel silicone molecules, which give off a thicker and firmer look.

Getting breast implant revision surgery is not something to be taken lightly. Whether to increase your size, regain a more beautiful shape or attend to complications… Our clinic offers you the best comprehensive care that will ensure your breast implant revision will turn out just as you envisioned.
