Saline and silicone breast implants last longer than ever thanks to advanced techniques and materials available to plastic surgeons today. However, these results don’t last forever, and many women must undergo breast implant revision or replacement ten or more years following the original breast augmentation procedure. The initial breast augmentation procedure is distinctly different than breast revision surgery and must be performed by someone with the experience and skill necessary to improve the appearance of your breasts.
When it’s time to touch up your results, it’s important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast implant revision to ensure the best possible outcome.
Why Do I Need a Breast Implant Revision or Implant Replacement?
Breast implant revision is inevitable as aging continues to take a toll on your body and skin tissue, but there are also medical reasons such as an implant rupture that requires a second breast augmentation procedure and new breast implants. Common reasons you may need or want an implant replacement or revision include:
- You’ve experience an implant rupture.
- You’re unhappy with your initial results.
- You wish to change the size or material of your implants.
- You’ve begun to experience breast sagging and need a revision to restore your results.
Regardless of your reasoning, only a specialist can give you the best outcome with as little scarring as possible. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Corey, has specialized in implant revisions for more than 20 years and can discuss your options during your initial consultation.
