Whether you had breast augmentation years ago or only recently added breast implants, breast implant revision is something you should be aware of. While breast implants can last a long time, they are not meant to last a lifetime and chances are, you will need a breast implant revision at some point in the life of your implants. However, breast implant revision may also be necessary for a variety of different reasons.
What Is Breast Implant Revision?
A breast implant revision is a surgical procedure designed to remove the existing breast implants and replace them with new implants in order to achieve your body contouring goals. Those considering breast implant revision will meet with their surgeon to discuss their goals and the surgeon will develop a breast revision plan that removes the old implants and achieves your desired body contouring goals.
Who Needs Breast Implant Revision?
Breast implant revision surgery is done for a number of different reasons. In many cases, it is simply cosmetic, meaning you are unhappy with your current breast implants and wanting to go larger, smaller, or a different shape. Changing the implants helps you achieve your new goals.
However, breast implant revision surgery can also be necessary due to a number of different conditions including:
- Changes in current implant position
- Implant ruptures or deflation
- Changes in breast tissue due to weight gain or loss
- Pain from capsular contracture
