Before & After

Breast revision surgery is necessary when a patient experiences a problem with her breast implants or changes her preferences. Breast implants do not have an expiration date, but it is nonetheless prudent to prepare for revision surgery in the future. To ensure continued satisfaction from your breast augmentation procedure, it is best to partner with a cosmetic surgeon that you trust.

Why choose Breast Implant Revision?

Patients may decide to exchange their breast implants or remove them completely. This may be due to a complication, unrelated medical problem, or change in preferences. Several years after breast implant surgery, you may decide that your lifestyle has changed and your breast implants need to be removed or reduced in size. Some possible reasons for breast revision / removal are below:

  • Wrinkling of the implant
  • Breast implant rupture
  • Scar tissue around the breast implant
  • Implant out of position
  • Unnatural nipple position
  • Need for scar revision
  • Reduction of areola
  • Breast sagging
  • Change in size preferences
  • Change to silicone breast implants

What is Capsular Contracture?

After your breast revision surgery, it is normal for scar tissue to form around your breast implants. However, in a certain number of patients, this tissue hardens and constricts around the implant. This is known as capsular contracture and can occur years after the original procedure. Cosmetic surgeons have developed several techniques to remedy this situation. If you think you are experiencing capsular contracture, contact our office to discuss a solution.

Can Implants Be Removed?

Breast implant removal is relatively simple. Breast revision in Bucks County with Dr. Rosen may take as little as one hour, and the same incisions are typically used to access the implant. However, there is potential for a poor aesthetic outcome, especially if your implants were placed many years ago and the level of skin elasticity has decreased. Breast lift surgery is one solution that may be able to mitigate the negative outcomes of breast implant removal.
