Breast augmentation with implants have been performed on millions of women in the US. At some point, breast implants may need to be repaired, replaced or removed. While breast implants are meant to last for 10 years or more, they can change shape, or the patient may decide they want larger or smaller breasts. At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer breast implant revision surgery to remove, replace or repair issues with breast implants at our medical facility in Miami.
Reasons for Breast Implant Correction
There are many possible reasons a patient may want breast implant revision surgery. Breast implants and the patient’s body can change over the years, requiring medical correction to keep the breasts looking natural and appealing. Injuries, illness, aging and preference changes can all impact the decision to have breast implant revision surgery. Some of the common reasons patients seek breast implant correction include:
- Breast implants have changed shape
- Patient wants larger/smaller breasts
- Capsular contracture or breast implant illness
- Sagging or aging issues
- Implant leaking or rupture
In some cases, breast implant revisions or corrections can be more complex than the original surgery. The breast capsule may need support, and mesh or fat grafting may be needed to add natural volume. With aging, pregnancy and other changes to the body, a breast lift may be needed in addition to the implant correction. Dr. Ali Charafeddine is a highly respected mammoplasty specialist who can determine the best options for revision and help you decide what procedure will obtain the results you desire.
