You expected to fall more in love with your body after breast augmentation, but now, you’re questioning your implants. They may have been asymmetrical after the operation, or they did not heal properly and now join at the chest. Or you realized that the size you once wanted no longer reflects your body image. How can you correct breast augmentation without getting rid of implants? You can look into breast implant revision.
Reasons for Breast Implant Revision: Correcting Past Surgical Mistakes
Although every patient deserves nothing but the most skilled surgeon, that doesn’t always happen. Even a board-certified, credible plastic surgeon may not be as specialized in breast implants as a specialist. This can increase the likelihood of undesirable post-surgical results.
For example, a surgeon may not place the breast implants properly, resulting in the wrong position after healing (malposition). Or, in some cases, patients find that their breasts appear to have grown together, forming what is called symmastia. Both instances require surgical correction from a plastic surgeon.
When you work with a skilled surgeon who has performed hundreds of breast augmentation surgeries, as well as breast reconstruction, you can fix past mistakes and achieve a breast size and alignment that you are truly happy with.
Enhancing Your Cleavage With Breast Implant Revision
One of the other most common reasons patients get breast implant revision is to change the shape, size, or position of their breasts. Over time, implants can shift, or you may gain or lose weight and find that the original implants you chose no longer suit your body.
You can also have saline or silicone implants replaced with the other if you prefer a different material.
From sagging or drooping to scar tissue, revision surgery is a good option for improving the appearance of your chest and regaining body confidence after a breast augmentation you are not 100% happy with.
