Revision breast surgery can be a great option for many women who have previously undergone a breast enhancement procedure that produced an unsatisfactory outcome and/or led to complications affecting the appearance of the breasts. In addition, this secondary procedure can also be beneficial for individuals whose aesthetic goals have changed since their prior breast surgery.
Some of the most common reasons to consider revision breast surgery include:
If you want to change from saline to silicone implants.
If you are experiencing capsular contracture, which is a condition caused by the formation of thick, excess scar tissue around the implant.
If you have noticeable breast asymmetries and/or issues with breast shape.
If you desire different size implants than you currently have.
If your saline breast implants have deflated due to a leak, or your implant has ruptured.
If the weight of your implants has caused your breasts to droop over time.
If you no longer wish to have breast implants.
No matter the reason you are considering revision breast surgery, it is vital that you seek a highly trained plastic surgeon who has extensive experience and proven results, as secondary breast surgery can be quite challenging and technically difficult.
