Did you know that breast implant surgery is the most common cosmetic surgery performed worldwide? Most women are thrilled with the results of their breast surgery, but for one reason, or another, not all outcomes are good. This is when a breast implant revision is required.
What is a Breast Implant Revision Surgery?
A typical breast implant revision surgery would involve the removal and/or the replacement of breast implants with a modern cohesive breast implant in a new breast pocket.
The breast implant revision procedure can be undertaken to change the size or the shape of your original implants. The surgery could also be required to correct any complications that may have arisen from the original breast augmentation.
Why would you have Breast Implant Revision Surgery?
The goal of this surgery is to restore a youthful breast contour and appearance. It is important to understand that any revision surgery, including breast implant revision surgery is much more complicated than the initial breast augmentation surgery.
Today modern breast implants all have a lifetime warranty from the various manufacturers. However, in reality, it is expected that they will all fail at some stage. For most women who have breast implants this generally requires a revision procedure after 10-20 years.
Unfortunately, a lot of the problems that Dr Turner sees with women who are seeking breast implant revision surgery – it could have been avoided by careful selection of the breast implant and the experience of the surgeon performing the procedure.
