Three Reasons You Might Consider Breast Implant Revision Surgery
Regardless of the quality and precision of your breast augmentation surgery, there may be a time in the future when you consider breast implant revision surgery. There are several reasons that you might want revision of your breast implants, some of which are personal preference and some of which are medical. Here are three of the most common reasons for breast implant revision surgery.
Breast Implant Deflation
Breast implants are not lifetime devices and breast implantation may not be a one time surgery. The longer you have your implants the more likely you will need them removed or replaced. Your breasts may change if you become pregnant, experience weight fluctuations or even with hormonal changes. If you have breast implants and have any concerns regarding change of shape or volume, you may need a revision procedure to remove and replace your implants.
Desired Breast Size
Many women are afraid to go too big with their implants, so they take the conservative route. But after having the implants for some time, you might decide that you really should have gone with a bigger cup size. Whether you want your implants to be smaller or larger, breast implant revision surgery can help you be happier with your results.
Capsular contracture occurs when the scar tissue around the implant tightens and causes the breast implants to move into an undesired position. There are several treatment options when this happens, including breast implant revision surgery. You should talk to your doctor about the best option for coping with this problem.
