What Is Breast Revision? Understanding the Basics
Removing Current Implants
Revision surgery is recommended when patients are unhappy with their current breast implants. This may be due to aesthetic flaws or various wellness concerns. Whatever the case, removal is ideal.
Placing New Implants
Once the previous breast implants are out, new implants can be placed. Cosmetic surgeons work carefully to meet the goals of the patient. An open dialogue and detailed planning can ensure your full satisfaction.
Improving Initial Results
Patients can finally enjoy the results they want, or they should be free from the problems caused by the previous implants. In other words, you can expect to feel confident in your skin again.
Reasons for Breast Revision
Ruptured Breast ImplantsVehicle accidents, sports injuries, and time can cause implants to break or leak. Revision surgery replaces the ruptured breast implants with new ones.
Capsular ContractureCapsular contracture is a painful surgical complication in which scar tissue forms and hardens around an implant. Breast revision is an effective capsular contracture treatment.
Other Surgical ComplicationsCapsular contracture is just one potential breast augmentation complication. Revision is recommended for patients who experience shifts in implant position, infections, and other problems.
Wrong Implant SizeWhile the majority of breast augmentation patients are happy with the size of their implants, some wish they'd gone bigger or smaller. Revision helps patients experience a more appropriate size.
Unhappy with Initial SurgerySometimes, patients notice their implants are asymmetrical after surgery. Patients may also be displeased with an unnatural shape to the breasts. Breast revision corrects these and other issues.
Touch-Up and EnhancementImplant revision may be performed as part of a breast augmentation touch-up years after surgery. It's sometimes combined with a breast lift to correct age-related sagging.

Dr. K is very knowledgeable and I really appreciated his honesty. He could have told me I needed surgery, but instead he educated me, which led me to a more natural path. This was a very positive experience. I would feel very good about recommending him to anyone.View On Google
