Breast augmentation can produce a fuller, more symmetrical, and ideally contoured bust. With the help of breast implants, augmentation can be used to enhance the size and shape of the breasts, improve cleavage, and create complementary curves between the bust and the body, making it one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures year after year.
While incredibly popular, breast augmentation is not permanent. Many women will, at some point, need to consider breast augmentation revision to maintain their results.
Why Consider Breast Implant Revision?
As with any cosmetic procedure, reasons for choosing breast implant revision can vary widely from person to person. Three common reasons include:
- Changes to the Implant. This includes ripples and wrinkles, double bubbles, and implant rupture
- Changes in Aesthetic Desires. This includes changing your mind about size or shape, desiring more or less cleavage, or similar changes that can update and improve your initial procedure
- Changes in Comfort. This includes capsular contracture and breast implant illness, uncommon but possible complications following breast augmentation
Some women choose to have older breast implants removed and replaced with a modern option such as cohesive silicone gel (“gummy bear” implants) or structured saline implants to help produce a more natural look and feel to the bust. Others may choose to have their implants removed entirely and, instead of replacing them, opt for fat grafting or a breast lift. This is entirely dependent on the needs of the individual.
