Is it Time for a Breast Augmentation Revision?

Do your implants need to be corrected? Unfortunately, breast implants do not last forever, whether you have saline or silicone implants. Even worse, you may not be satisfied with your original procedure. Here are a few instances where we’ve seen clients come to Taylor Plastic Surgery for a breast augmentation revision to touch up aging implants or correct unhappy results.

Hardening

Also known as capsular contracture, this is a potentially painful complication with breast implants that cause the breast to feel hard. When this happens, the pocket around the implant tightens and can even make the breast change shape. In this procedure, the doctor will use the same incision used during your breast augmentation to eliminate additional scarring. You should not need to walk around with weighted down, fake-feeling breasts. Breast augmentation revision can assist in bringing back a more natural feel to your implants.

Correctional

In some cases, patients come to us because they are not happy with the outcome of their original breast augmentation done at a different practice. Sometimes the breasts are uneven or not in the proper position because the implant pockets were created too far apart or too close together. Here, your doctor will also use your original incision for your correction procedure and reconstruct the pocket to the appropriate conditions. It is important to schedule a consultation to figure out exactly what steps must be taken for correction.

Elevation of Areola

If you are satisfied with your implants but unhappy with the placement of your nipples, your procedure may require additional incisions. Depending on your current placement, your doctor will suggest the level of additional lifting or tightening that is necessary.

When choosing breast augmentation revision, you want to make sure you’re working with an experienced plastic surgeon to ensure that your revision leaves you satisfied and confident in your breasts.
