Reasons to Consider a Breast Revision

While the need for corrective surgery following a breast augmentation is rare, you might consider a breast revision in the following situations:

  • Capsular contracture – This occurs when scar tissue hardens or distorts your breasts after surgery.
  • Implant leaks or ruptures – Leaks and ruptures can cause your implants to look deflated or flat.
  • Asymmetry – If your implants or nipples are uneven, a breast revision might be necessary.
  • Breast implant rippling – In some procedures and implant types, visible rippling can occur to the breast skin, making the tissue look aesthetically displeasing.
  • Size issues – Over time, people often change their minds about the size of their implants.
  • Breast changes – Your breast tissue has changed as a result of tightening or weight loss/gain.

Maryland Breast Revision Procedure

Before your breast implant revision can begin, Dr. Rosenberg will meet with you during a consultation where he can help determine what needs to be done to help you achieve the look you desire.

If you want a larger or smaller size than was originally implanted, Dr. Rosenberg may replace the current implant with a larger or smaller size using the same incision. If you want smaller breasts, this can be done at the same time as a breast lift.

If your breast augmentation left your breasts uneven, too far apart, too close together, or oddly shaped, you may need to have the shape corrected. Sometimes it is necessary to elevate the nipple or areola in order to set the breasts correctly in a way that looks natural. If this is the case, Dr. Rosenberg will follow the natural curve of your breast crease.

You may be asked to choose different implants that are more conducive to your breast shape, tissue, or construction. The two main types of breast implants are saline and silicone, and each has its own benefits and drawbacks.
