Breast implants, used in both breast augmentation and breast reconstruction surgeries, are expected to provide years of issue-free function. Even so, the majority of women who have breast implants will undergo one or more additional breast surgeries over the course of 30 or 40 years. At some point, there may be a reason to consider replacement of your implants through breast revision surgery. This surgery can correct your breast appearance and replace compromised implants to produce more desirable results.
Reasons for Breast Revision
Time never stands still. After breast surgery, it should be expected that there will be changes in your breast shape due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, gravity, and aging. Changes such as laxity of the skin, deviations in breast shape, and breast volume deflation can all be addressed with breast revision surgery. A variety of techniques are available to assist with addressing these concerns, and a personalized treatment plan will be devised to produce the best outcome possible.
Breast implants are artificial constructs that may require revision and replacement procedures at some point. Some of the complications that can occur with breast implants include loss of implant integrity (rupture or deflation), capsular contracture (where a robust scar capsule encases the implant), and bottoming out (breast pocket failure), among others. These complications are directly addressed with breast revision, which corrects the issue and restores the appearance of the breasts.
Desire for Change
If the results of breast augmentation surgery don’t match your anticipated expectations, you may desire a change. Revisionary breast surgery can improve the results and produce a more desirable outcome. Additionally, over time, a woman’s preferences can shift. This may lead to a change in opinion about the implants. If a desire for change occurs at any point, breast revision can be performed to replace or remove the implants according to your preferences.
"The atmosphere from Dr. Cohn to the staff was extremely friendly and professional. I have zero complaints and will return for any future procedures. My results were beautiful. Dr. Cohn knew exactly what he was doing and was able to answer all of my questions. I felt very comfortable in his office. Dr. Cohn's staff reached out to me the day after my surgery to check on me and to see if I had anymore questions."
