Despite yours and your plastic surgeon’s best efforts, sometimes complications still happen. This can happen after a breast augmentation procedure, even though breast augmentations are some of the most popular and often-performed plastic surgeries. Although the chances of breast implant surgery going wrong are very low, in very sparse percentages it does go wrong. During a breast revision surgery, a new or different type or size of implant is surgically-placed with correction to the breasts if needed.
Why Choose Breast Revision Surgery?
Dr. Salzman is an expert consultant for breast revision candidates and has plenty of experience in improving the results of an already-completed breast augmentation surgery. A few of the reasons for which people often go for breast revision include:
Although your plastic surgeon may be an expert breast surgeon, the chance of complication is never zero. Your body may respond in unpredictable ways and cause capsular contracture, which is the most common form of complication from implant surgery. This occurs when scar tissue forms around the implant and results in a hard shell encapsulating the breast implant. This can cause it to shift out of place or migrate around the breast. Rotation of the implant or rupture are also common reasons for undergoing breast revision.
Technology has come a long way, but it can still be difficult to judge how your final results will look. This can change over time, with the implants eventually becoming unfavorable due to the way your body changes. You may even realize that your implants are too small or too large as your results become apparent, or that you prefer a different shape. In any case, Dr. Salzman can help you select a better-suited implant or treatment plan during a breast revision consultation.
Because breast implants are so popular, the technology is constantly developing, meaning new implants may be available at any point in the future. Sometimes, new and better implants come along that may be better suited for your goals and anatomy, in which case they can be swapped out during a breast revision.
