They No Longer Want Implants
Although the number of women who are satisfied with their breast augmentation surgery is well above 90%, women may decide down the road that they no longer enjoy having implants. Fortunately, that desire can be easily remedied with breast revision. Our surgeons understand how to remove implants while leaving the natural tissue in an appealing shape and position.
Sometimes, implants develop a wrinkly texture which can be seen through the skin. This phenomenon is most common in women who have small breasts and thinner skin. Breast implants can be switched out so the breasts look natural and do not feature ripples on the sides.
To Change Implant Size
Because plastic surgeons take painstaking measures to ensure the implant size is to the patient’s liking, most patients are satisfied with the sizing immediately after a surgery. However, over time, a woman may find herself wishing she had requested larger or smaller breasts than what she initially requested.
Ruptured or Leaking Implant
Breast implants are very durable. However, the longer a woman has them, the odds of implants breaking or leaking gradually increases. With saline implants, a rupture poses no medical risks to the body, though the breasts may start to look deflated and warrant revision from an aesthetic perspective. With silicone implants, it is imperative to remove the ruptured implant to avoid health consequences. Breast revision can replace the broken implant with a new one.
