04 Apr Top 3 Reasons For Breast Revision
When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon such as Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. Shaun Parson, breast augmentation can yield life-altering results giving women the breast contour they’ve always wanted. However, it’s not uncommon for some women to opt for breast revision surgery later in life. The top reasons for women to undergo breast revision include:
Unhappy with Implant Size
When you’re young, you tend to be a little more open and carefree, and don’t mind showing off a little more cleavage. But once you get older and become established as a professional or mother, you may decide you no longer desire the voluptuous implant size you once did. Or perhaps, you had breast augmentation in Scottsdale and didn’t go as large as you would have liked. Breast implant revision can be performed to either decrease or increase the size of your implants. Most of the time, Dr. Parson can access the implant via the original incision site to swap out the old implants with the new. If you decide you no longer want implants, they can be removed altogether, and a breast lift can be utilized to remove any excess skin and breast tissue that remains.
Experiencing Capsular Contracture
The most common reason women require breast revision is due to capsular contracture, a side effect where scar tissue surrounding the implant becomes hard and painful. This occurs as a result of the body reacting to having a foreign object placed within it. When capsular contracture happens, the implant is at risk for being shifted or ruptured and must be safely removed with breast revision surgery.
Implant Rippling Is Noticeable
The goal for undergoing breast augmentation is to obtain beautiful breasts, so the last thing you want is to have a visual flaw such as implant rippling. This can occur due to several reasons including placing saline implants over the chest muscles without having adequate breast tissue to support and cover the implant. Implant rippling isn’t harmful and shouldn’t evoke fear if noticed. Breast revision performed at Dr. Shaun Parson Plastic Surgery can safely and effectively exchange the implant for a different type and can reposition it to allow for more coverage.
