Breast augmentation can undergo a series of changes in the patient over time. Some women may experience thinning of the breast tissue, displacement of the implant, capsular contraction, and implant rupture.
These conditions may pose some issues where a woman may need to undergo secondary breast revision surgery.
Change of Appearance
Over time a woman may just want to change the appearance of her breasts. Some women choose to want to be larger than they are now or in some cases they want a breast reduction in size.
All these conditions typically require breast revision correction surgery. Breast revision usually requires removing the failed breast implant and or augmentation and replacing it with a new breast implant. In most cases the surgeon may remove and replace both implants.
Sometimes a woman may decide to remove the implant altogether in which during the revision surgery a breast lift may be performed. Other options include having a breast lift (Mastopexy) in combination with a breast augmentation. This would be to correct sagging breast or ptosis from when the breast first underwent breast augmentation.
