When to Consider Breast Implant Revision


With modern implant options, breast augmentation can produce pleasing results for a number of years. However, the procedure is not considered permanent and, over time, you may begin to experience imperfections that become distracting or aesthetically unappealing. When this occurs, it may be time to call Phoenix breast surgeon Dr. John Corey at 480-767-7700 to schedule a breast implant revision consultation.

Reasons to consider breast augmentation revision include:

  • Aesthetic imperfections such as ripples, wrinkles, double-bubble, or deflation
  • Implant shifting or shape changes
  • Capsular contracture
  • A desire to increase or decrease implant size

One of the most common reasons women seek breast revision surgery is to achieve more natural looking and feeling results. Particularly in cases where saline implants have been placed above the muscles in the chest, results from initial breast augmentation procedures can look artificial and become more distracting than complementary. Dr. Corey offers a range of implant type and placement options to meet the desired outcome of each of our patients.

Breast implant removal and replacement is typically done through the same incisions as your original surgery. This helps reduce additional scarring and trauma to the skin. Dr. Corey will discuss all of your options during your initial consultation to help ensure you are making the decisions best suited to produce the look you deserve.
