Breast Implant Revision: What Are Your Options?February 20, 2022
Breast implant revision is designed to address issues that may arise in the months or even years following breast augmentation. In some cases, these issues are aesthetic, such as asymmetrical results or dissatisfaction with the size, shape, or projection of the implants. Others are related to comfort, such as in cases where capsular contracture has occurred. While much less common, some implants may also require replacement due to developed imperfections like wrinkles and ripples, folds, and deflation.
At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, breast implant revision is performed in our private surgical facility where your comfort and safety are the top priorities. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ravi Somayazula utilizes advanced techniques, following the same incision patterns when possible, to help guard against new imperfections. Thoughtful, attentive, and experienced, Dr. Ravi takes every care to produce results that match the specific desires of each patient he sees.
Breast Implant Revision Options
There are many reasons to consider breast implant revision and just as many options that allow us to personalize the procedure. These include:
- Implant Type: Silicone or Saline
- Implant Shape: Round or Teardrop
- Implant Placement: Subglandular or Submuscular
- Implant Projection and Size: Pronounced or Subtle
In addition to implant revision, removal alone is an option for women who are no longer interested in having implants at all. In these cases, changes in breast volume following implant removal may produce unpleasant results. If you are interested in living life implant-free, fat transfer breast augmentation may offer a good solution. With this service, Dr. Ravi uses fat from your own body to add volume to the chest. This improves the symmetry, shape, and size of the breasts while maintaining a natural look and feel, making it a good option for women who are interested in augmentation but who do not desire implants.
