Why get breast revision surgery?
When it comes to breast implants, there are many reasons why a patient may want to change the outcome from their first procedure. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of the implants becoming old. Other times, a patient may have never been pleased with her results. For some women, they never found their implants to be comfortable. But the most common reason for a breast revision surgery is because there is a problem with the implants themselves. Breast implant complications can include:
Implants are made to be very durable; however, they aren’t impenetrable, and it is possible for them to rupture and deflate.
If scar tissue around the implant becomes thick and contracts, it can result in the implant becoming hardened and losing its shape.
Rippling is the most common issue with implants. This is when the type of implant “disagrees” with a woman’s skin or body type and wrinkles appear under the skin from the implant.
Implants have a lifespan of about ten years. With age, they can change and move, causing an unbalanced appearance.
When the implant moves from its original position, it can cause discomfort and/or a misshapen breast shape.
Sometimes implants can cause the breasts to appear uneven.
Symmastia happens when the implants “join together” in the center of the chest.
