Breast augmentation surgery carries one of the highest patient satisfaction ratings of any cosmetic surgery,* and was also the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States last year. When interviewed, many women say that they feel more confident, have higher self-esteem and experience an overall higher quality of life following their breast augmentation.*
Yet, despite the successes of most augmentation surgeries, not all women who get breast augmentation are thrilled with the results. A breast surgery revision can help you finally get the look from your breast implants that you’ll really love.*
Reasons for Revision Surgery
There are a few different reasons that women may consider breast surgery revision. Although it only happens rarely, an implant deflation is definitely cause for replacement. Some women can develop hardened scar tissue around their existing implants; this capsule can be removed for a smoother, softer look and feel.*
Some women decide that they’d like to go larger or smaller than their original implants, and choose breast surgery revision as a way to adjust their cup size.* Women who chose larger implants initially may find that they’re not conducive to their current active lifestyles, and women who were concerned that larger implants would be too noticeable sometimes decide that going bigger would have been better after all.
What matters more than the reasons for the revision is ensuring that you’re happy with the results.* For breast revision surgery, scheduling your appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation and revision surgery is a must. It takes a special touch to correct a former breast augmentation surgery, and you definitely deserve that.
