The goal of any breast augmentation is to achieve beautiful, attractive results that enhance your body. However, complications can affect the look and feel of your breasts following breast augmentation. If you didn’t achieve the results you envisioned, you might feel even worse about your breast appearance than you did before surgery. Breast revision surgery is designed to treat a number of breast augmentation complications, including:
|☛ Poor implant size||☛ Implant rupture or leak||☛ Implant displacement|
|☛ Capsular contracture||☛ Double-bubble deformity||☛ Implant rippling|
Breast Revision FAQ
Q: What is capsular contracture?
A: Capsular contracture is the hardening of the scar tissue that naturally forms around the breast implant. Capsular contracture can cause the breasts to feel and look hard. In some cases, capsular contracture can cause intense breast pain.
Q: What is symmastia?
A: Symmastia occurs when your breast implants shift out of their breast pockets and move towards the midline of the chest. In severe cases, the implants will touch in the middle of the chest to create the appearance of one breast.
Q: How soon after my breast augmentation can I undergo revision surgery?
A: Minor swelling can persist for up to a year following breast augmentation surgery, which can affect the look of your breasts. If you are dissatisfied with the size, shape, or position of your breasts, wait at least a year before choosing revision surgery to see if your breast appearance changes once swelling subsides.
Q: What causes implant rupture?
A: Implant rupture can occur due to natural defects in the breast implants. Trauma to the implant can also cause implant ruptures. Older implants are more prone to leaks and ruptures.
