• Breast Implant Revision Surgery – is it worth it?

    on Mar 23rd, 2017

If you have had breast implant surgery and are considering a revision, you have probably thought long and hard about it. You might be dissatisfied about the way your breasts look, or there may be some problems you feel strongly about that you want to address. Issues such as post-op sagging, pregnancy or weight gain that affected placement, asymmetrical placement, or to change the size of the implants might be some of the things that are on your mind.

Consider contacting a cosmetic surgeon in Scottsdale, AZ. for a consultation. Also, be sure to know the facts.

What is Breast Revision Surgery?

Breast revision surgery is done to replace the implants, either to change the size, shape, or to replace a damaged or ruptured implant.

Is Breast Revision Surgery Right for Me?

Changes can occur over time, and issues such as those mentioned above can drive the urge to replace your current implants. You also might want to change the size, style or shape of your implants. As long as you are in good health, revision surgery can generally be performed with minimal complications.

Options

Your options for breast implant revision are similar to the options you were presented with prior to your original surgery. In the case of saline implants, you may opt for the newer double lumen design, which tend to hold their shape better and have a decreased instance of capsular contracture. Saline implants are filled after placement, while silicone implants are filled before, and sometimes require a longer incision. You are not restricted to the same options you chose for your first surgery, so it is to your advantage to look at a lot of before and after photos of revision surgeries to get an idea of what to expect.

While many women have revision surgery to obtain larger breasts, some might actually be looking to reduce the size. Whether you are sizing up or down, your frame and build will dictate what is right for you. Always speak to your cosmetic surgeon at length before making your final decision.
