Breast Implant Revision Surgery

We all make mistakes in our lives and some mistakes are harder to determine ahead of time just how bad that mistake might be. If you’re one of those people who has fallen victim to bad plastic surgery from the past and are now suffering from things such as deflated breast implants, lopsided breast implants, or terrible scarring, take matters into your own hands and consider getting breast implant revision surgery. Read on to learn more.

What Can Breast Implant Revision Surgery Fix?

Breast Implant RevisionBreast implant revision surgery can’t turn back time and make you look younger, however it can help to fix problems from your past breast enhancement surgery including:

  • Breast asymmetry
  • Dissatisfaction with breast implant size or shape
  • Breast implant rupture or deflation
  • Rippling – implant wrinkling being visible through the skin
  • Symmastia
  • Capsular contracture
  • Poor scarring

What Is the Process Like?

Similar to your original breast enhancement surgery, breast implant revision surgery typically involves going back into the breasts, removing old implants, and replacing them with new, firmer implants that will deliver you with the results you’ve wanted from the beginning. Depending on the severity of the problems that your surgeon will have to deal with, will help determine just how much work has to be done and if any other steps need to be taken in order to ensure that you get the best results possible.

How Long Does the Process Take?
As mentioned above, because every case is different from the next, your surgery might require more or less time than the next person. However, during your initial consultation, you and Dr. Yates will be able to sit down together to better assess what kind of surgery you need, and just how long the surgery will likely take. During the consultation process, you may have to receive x-rays in order for your doctor to get a better look at your implants and properly assess the damage that has taken place.
