Breast Implant Revision

Breast Implant Revision is also known as breast implant replacement. It is a cosmetic surgical procedure to revise or correct the aesthetic appearance of the breast resulting from the following: ruptured implants, unsatisfactory result of a breast augmentation, infection, implants that have rippled, rubbed or shifted, wrong implant size, hardening of implants, leakage of silicone implant, and deflation of saline implants.

There are different procedures for different reasons in having a breast implant revision.

Rippling of Implant – The surgeon uses the same incision to reposition the implants in case the saline implants are still palpable and visible. The surgeon may also opt to change the kind of implant or place a new implant into a new breast pocket.

Changing of Implant Size – Still, the surgeon will use the same incision to remove and do the replacement of the implant. If one wants a bigger implant, the surgeon will make the pocket bigger or the space in the breast.

Hardening of the implant and capsule (capsular contracture) – Using the same incision, the surgeon will first remove the original implant and places a new one.

Implant displacement / malposition – To correct the position of the breast, the surgeon will alter the scar tissue from the capsule around the implant and recreate the pocket that will fit the right position using suturing procedures. The tissues will be utilized to reinforce the new implant pocket. The use of acellular dermal matrix product for additional support may also be used.

Risks and Complications

These are rare and often only temporary, however, they may include:

  • Infection
  • Allergic reaction to anaesthetic
  • Bruising
  • Excessive Bleeding
  • May need more procedures done
  • Displacement of implants

Q. How long does the procedure last?

A. It will take between one and three hours depending on the procedure, technique and the patient’s anatomy and health.

Q. Who are good candidates to undergo the breast implant revision procedure?

breast surgeon What to look for in a Breast Surgeon by Dr Craig Rubinstein April 29, 2022 - What to look for in a Breast Surgeon – Find an Experienced Specialist Choosing a surgeon for any breast surgery can be a little overwhelming. How do you know that you’re choosing the right one? It’s a lot of money to spend on yourself, especially if you aren’t happy with the final outcome. We chatted to one of Australia’s most respected specialist plastic surgeons, Dr Craig Rubinstein from Coco Ruby Plastic Surgery in Hawthorn Victoria, to ask him what to look for in a breast surgeon to help make your decision a little easier. Qualifications and Training The first thing you want to ensure is that your surgeon is a Specialist Plastic Surgeon, not a Cosmetic Surgeon. Any doctor can call themselves a Cosmetic Surgeon, but you want one that has done the specialist training required to perform Plastic Surgery. The difference in your results and experience will almost certainly be significant. You increase your risk by choosing a doctor or “Cosmetic Surgeon” over a Specialist Plastic Surgeon. Dr Rubinstein says, “Cosmetic Surgeons can be GPs, Dermatologists and in some cases Dentists! You are trusting someone to alter your appearance and operate on you under an anaesthetic. You need to […]
Dropping and Fluffing – What to expect post Breast Augmentation with Dr Kumar April 13, 2022 - What is Dropping and Fluffing after Breast Augmentation? If you are looking at getting breast implants you might have heard of the term “drop and fluff” . You might not have. Either way, if you are planning to have or have had a breast augmentation you need to know what it is. It’s a term used to describe what your breasts and new breast implants do after a breast augmentation. To tell us more about dropping and fluffing and what to expect post-breast augmentation, we spoke to Dr Rohit Kumar, Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon in Sydney NSW. Dropping and Fluffing is a completely normal part of breast augmentation recovery After all your planning, anticipation and then actually having the procedure, you’re super excited about checking out your new boobs only to wake up from the anaesthetic and look down and see some overly high-riding boobs that feel super tight as though they might pop out of your chest. Your muscles will feel tight, you will have swelling and you might freak out a little because you think they don’t look at all like you expected. Relax. You’re not alone. There are a few things that need to happen to your new […]
Breast Augmentation Revision Options for Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery with Dr Nick Moncrieff April 5, 2022 - A number of women who have undergone Breast Augmentation may find – especially after many years / weight fluctuation / or pregnancy that they are not 100% happy with their breasts. The good news is something can be done for a majority of these women. According to Hunter Plastic Surgery’s Dr Moncrieff, the solutions vary from patient to patient. For instance, when it comes to removing or replacing breast implants, “everyone woman is different and may or may not seek revision at different points in time. As a general rule, it reasonable to expect 10 or more years from a breast augmentation procedure. After that is when women start looking at a change for reasons more closely related to changes in their body shape post weight changes and babies, than problems with their implants.” “While some patients may seek a revision before the 10-year mark, we have known other patients who have gone decades happily with their original implants,” added Dr Moncrieff. Complications which may arise after breast augmentation include implant rupture and capsular contracture, which will require an implant removal revision surgery.  If you are experiencing complications, it is suggested, where possible, you contact your original surgeon or an […]
Inframammary Fold What is the Inframammary Fold, and how does it affect breast surgery? with Dr Miroshnik January 9, 2022 - So, what is the Inframammary Fold (IMF), and how does it affect breast surgery? You may or may not have heard of the inframammary fold but it plays a big part in any type of breast surgery. It is considered one of the most important aspects to the aesthetic appearance of the breast. You also may or may not be aware of the terms “upper pole” and “lower pole” which refer to the fullness of the upper or lower breast and is largely affected by the positioning of the inframammary fold. Dr Michael Miroshnik, Plastic Surgeon based in Sydney NSW took time out of his day to help us understand what these terms mean, why your surgeon should be talking about them with you at your consultation and how they affect what your final breast surgery results will be. The Inframammary Fold (IMF) Dr Miroshnik says the IMF is always on the agenda at every industry breast meeting including the Breast Masters Symposium held at the end of 2018. “The inframammary fold is always a big topic because it defines the lower pole of the breast and we all know any problems will involve the inframammary fold in one way […]
Elizabeth - Real Story Elizabeth’s Breast Augmentation in USA December 16, 2021 - I had my breast augmentation in December 2013, at Georgia Plastic Surgery in Atlanta Georgia. I am 23 years old (I was 22 when I had surgery) and 5’11” tall weighing 160 lbs. The surgery was a graduation gift to myself as I had graduated from college in May 2013 with my nursing degree. I have always been a very active person. I have been a dancer ever since I was 5, and danced all through my childhood and continued on my college’s competitive dance team. While I really liked the tall, thin, body with a little wider frame, my small breasts always bothered me. I was basically flat chested all through high school, until the middle of my senior year. At that point I had already made up my mind that I wanted to get my breasts done. Once they started to grow, I wanted to see how big I would get before having surgery. My breasts slowly grew over the next year to be a 36 medium A. By now I was busy with college and decided to wait for surgery. Finally senior year of college came around, and I started to work out more than in the […]
EnBloc Breast Explant or Breast Implant Removal What is enBloc? Breast Explant or Breast Implant Removal – With Dr Hertess December 5, 2021 - For any woman who’s considering having their breast implants removed, it’s important to know what happens in the process. Having your implant removed by a surgeon who knows what they’re doing is essential, and we chatted to Dr Isolde Hertess, Specialist Plastic Surgeon to tell us why you need to know what EnBloc is. What is enBloc? By definition enBloc means ‘all together or at the same time’. Dr Hertess explains what an enBloc refers to for a breast implant removal. “EnBloc refers to surgeons who during a breast explant, or breast implant removal procedure, remove the implant, scar tissue AND capsule. In all my breast explant surgeries I remove the capsule, and this is essential to ensure that any silicone that may have leaked outside the Silastic shell are also removed.” A big reason for women wanting their implants removed is that they have a ruptured implant or are concerned about Breast Implant Illness (BII). BII is said to be caused by the implant leaking it’s fluid into the patient’s body. The Breast Implant Illness website says that implants contain over 90 chemicals and this no doubt is the underlying cause for many of the symptoms relating to BII. […]
What is Capsular Contracture? Dr Jeremy Hunt explains… November 30, 2021 - Capsular Contracture will develop in a small percentage of women who have breast implants. About three quarters of these will happen in the first two years after breast augmentation surgery. It can also happen as a result of implant rupture any number of years after the implants are inserted. Dr Jeremy Hunt, Plastic Surgeon from Wollongng and Edgecliff NSW, can help us understand what is capsular contracture and how to deal with it. What is Capsular Contracture? Capsular contracture is the hardening of the collagen layer that normally forms around a breast implant. All implants will develop a capsule, and the problem is when this capsule becomes thickened and feels firmer – this is capsular contracture. Scar tissue forms a lining around every breast implant; saline or silicone; as a natural reaction to what is a foreign material within the body. This lining is called a capsule, and it is when this capsule of scar tissue contracts and tightens onto the breast implant that capsular contracture occurs. It can be caused from a few triggers such as infection, trauma to the implant, the implant being too big without enough skin to cover it, radiation exposure and other reasons; however, sometimes […]
How Long do Breast Implants actually last? Dr Gavin Sandercoe answers October 28, 2021 - The Lifespan of a Breast Implant When you are considering a breast augmentation and start looking at all the information regarding breast implants on the internet it can be overwhelming trying to sort out the truth from the misinformation. A common question asked is, “how long do breast implants last?” This can be a difficult question to answer and indeed you find varying answers on the web. Every patient is different and depending on the implants, your surgeon and you; it can vary. There seems to be a lot of reports that they only last approximately 10 years but in reality most implants last a lot longer. Dr Gavin Sandercoe, Specialist Plastic Surgeon from Bella Vista in NSW says, “Until a few years ago, patients may have been led to believe that breast implants would last a life time. In a response to this criticism, breast implant manufacturers have begun to be more proactive in informing patients that any implanted device should not be considered a lifetime device. Most reputable manufacturers suggest that ten years should be the time until consideration prior to implant assessment, and sometimes replacement. This is based on the CORE studies that report an incidence of […]
To Lift or Not to Lift after an Explant with Dr Gavin Sandercoe August 13, 2021 - More and more women are opting to have their breast implants removal for various reasons also known as explant. Many of them are concerned about the shape and size their breasts will be afterwards, and most think they will need a lift at the same time. Sydney Plastic Surgeon, Dr Gavin Sandercoe, is seeing more women than ever requesting breast explants and performs dozens of the procedure each year. We had a chat to him about patient motivations and the processes involved in breast explant surgery, including whether to lift or not to lift when getting an explant. Why have your breast implants removed? There are several reasons why a woman may want to have her implants taken out including: Rupture Leaking Breast implant illness symptoms which can vary hugely from patient to patient but are often reported as sickness; chronic fatigue, back and shoulder pain, cognitive dysfunction (fogginess, memory loss), lowered immunity and subsequent infections among many others Change of mind/lifestyle Ageing Physical pain such as neck, back and shoulder pain. While breast implant illness is still being recognised as a valid condition, it is widely accepted that ruptured implants and in some cases implants that have not yet […]
Eliza's Story - I'm having my breast implants taken out Eliza’s Story – I’m having my breast implants taken out May 1, 2021 - Eliza’s story is one that every woman thinking about breast implants should read. She has bravely decided her implants are not for her and she is in the process of having them taken out. “I have implants and I’m having them completely taken out.” Eliza got her breast implants when she was 23 years old. She was a competitive runner for most of the early years of her life. With weight and fitness taken into account she was completely flat chested and opted to have a breast augmentation that would take her boobs up to a 12DD. “At 23 I decided I wanted to give up competitive running and change my looks, get a boyfriend and the whole shebang. I would say that it is something that I did rush into” explains Eliza. Eliza is now 27 and is going into surgery to have her implants taken out. “I was at a stage in my life where I was completely lacking in confidence. I just thought that getting breasts would perhaps make me feel better. Since I had the boob job four years ago my confidence has grown a lot, but the kind of guys that are attracted to me […]

Just recently we chatted to the remarkable Jenna, and we’re so excited to share her story with you. When Jenna was 22 she lost 35kg over a period of around 8 months. She was exercising and eating better than she had in years. But, even though she had always had naturally big breasts (GGG), when she lost the weight, her breasts went down 5 to 6 cup sizes! This was when Jenna decided she needed a breast lift and implants. She was 175cm tall and 69kgs. That was July last year (2016) and she is now loving her beautiful new boobs. Jenna tells us with confidence that the most important thing she did when planning her procedure was choose the right surgeon. Jenna had her procedure done with Dr Craig Rubinstein from Coco Ruby Plastic Surgery, although she says Dr Rubinstein wasn’t the first surgeon she consulted with. “I met with another surgeon and wasn’t really happy with him. He didn’t really tell me much and it felt kind of rushed. I must have only been in there for 20 – 25 minutes. I […]
Belinda's Breast Augmentation with Dr Scott Turner Belinda’s Breast Augmentation with Dr Scott Turner March 14, 2021 - After a few months of researching doctors for my breast augmentation I decided to have a consult with Dr Scott Turner. From the first contact I had with his office which was with Ghislaine his receptionist I knew I was going to be in the right hands. I had numerous questions about the surgery, fees, implants etc. This was all before actually having met with Dr Turner. When I first met Dr Turner in November last year, I immediately felt comfortable and knew I was in the right place. I had done a bit of research myself online, but as we all know its best to get the answers direct from the someone whose job it is to know all of this. As with any surgery there are always risks involved and therefore I wanted to make sure I was in the most qualified hands I could be. Yes there are cheaper options out there for breast implants, however if you are willing to be cut open and go under the knife, to me its more important to be taken care of by someone who has done the right training and has the proper accreditation and this was the type […]
Dr Patrick Briggs Post Pregnancy Mummy Makeover with Dr Patrick Briggs – I want my body back! February 9, 2021 - Many Mothers have said “I want my body back” after pregnancy, childbirth and breast feeding Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding are usually a wonderful time for a woman. It fulfils her biological drive and the strength of emotions experienced helps confirm her biological identity. The anticipation of pregnancy leads to the joy of childbirth and continues with the incredible feeling of bonding while breastfeeding. For most women this time in their life is one that they remember fondly. Psychologically these powerful feelings of caring for a helpless, joyful and beautiful being offset the changes that may have occurred in the biological journey. I am often asked by women who have not yet had children what will happen to their bodies after the sequence of pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. Unfortunately this is an almost impossible question to answer, for not only does the individuality of genetics play a very significant role but also other factors will add or detract from the eventual outcome. Some women only have one pregnancy, “carry small” during pregnancy and do not breastfeed. Clearly the physical changes of such an individual will be entirely different from a woman who has multiple pregnancies, tend to make a lot of […]
after surgery care Getting it right the second time around – the importance of after surgery care February 5, 2021 - Jem always wanted more boobs, and when she realised they weren’t going to grow any more than her AA size, at the age of 25 she started to do some research on breast augmentation. One of the first clinics to come up on her internet travels were The Cosmetic Institute (TCI), and Jem booked herself in. Not everything went smoothly though, and she ended up having to have a revision with WA Plastic Surgeon Dr Mark Hanikeri to fix her capsular contraction. Jem shared her story with us about getting it right the second time around – the importance of after surgery care. Jem was excited about finally having her breast augmentation and had a bilateral breast augmentation with TCI. It initially seemed to be fine, but then after an injury her left breast swelled up. She went straight back to TCI to have it checked out. “I sustained an injury to my left breast in Feb 2017 and it literally swelled up overnight like a balloon. I went for scans etc, and was told everything was fine – that the scar tissue capsule had just ruptured and to let it heal. Never once did I speak to my surgeon […]

Breast Implant or Breast Lift How do you know if you need Breast Implants or Breast Lift? August 6, 2020 - At Valley Plastic Surgery many patients present for breast enhancement – but many women are also unsure if what they want are breast implants or if they require a lift (mastopexy) procedure, with or without implants. So how do you know if you need breast implants or breast lift? To be entirely sure, a complete assessment by a fully qualified plastic surgeon such as Dr Raymond Goh, based at Valley Plastic Surgery, who is highly experienced in breast enhancement surgery is necessary. However, there are a few tips that patients can apply to get a fairly close idea as to which procedure is required to give them the result they are looking for. The Easy, “Look in the Mirror” Assessment Patients can gain a quick assessment just by looking at the mirror (with arms down by your side) or at photographs taken of them. Try to avoid ‘selfies’ of breasts as these are often taken at incorrect angles and distances, rendering them distorted and inaccurate. When you look at the mirror, make a note of where your inframammary fold or breast crease is – this is simply the place where the breast and the chest meet. The folds on each side […]
psychological benefits of surgery The Potential Psychological Benefits of Plastic Surgery August 5, 2020 - So, you’re thinking of surgery. Perhaps rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, a facelift, or any other surgery that you choose with the desired outcome of looking better. But what you may or may not realise is the likelihood that you will not only look better, you can potentially feel better about yourself after surgery. We take a look at the potential of psychological benefits of surgery. An in-depth study published by APS (Association for Psychological Science) titled the Psychological Effects of Aesthetic Surgery revealed that there are indeed many potential positive psychological benefits under-going aesthetic surgery. While these benefits are likely, they come with a few caveats, such as the expectations you would have in relation to the outcomes of your surgery. Some of the wide range of benefits identified for those that undergo an elective surgery to address aesthetic concerns include the more obvious benefits, such as an increase in self-esteem and confidence that aesthetic surgery can give you. Some of the other cited benefits vary across a wide range of outcomes, though they are primarily, positive psychologically. These outcomes can include a decrease in social anxiety, a lessening of feelings of depression, an increase in goal attainment, a general sense […]
Bespoke Mummy Makeover The Mummy Makeover Package – Breast & Tummy Surgery with Dr Craig Layt August 5, 2020 - Mummy Makeover Package with Dr Layt Talking about the bespoke mummy makeover package, Dr Craig Layt is an Australian plastic surgeon who has done the ‘mummy makeover’ procedure on hundreds of patients. Based on the Gold Coast, Dr Layt is highly credentialed in all areas of Plastic, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery and is dedicated to the highest standard of patient care and the achievement of excellent results. The ‘Mummy Makeover’ is a term that has been widely used throughout plastic surgery and media circles referring to combined surgical treatments for women after having children, most often focused on restoring the breasts and abdomen following pregnancy and breastfeeding. The Effects of Childbearing on the Body Pregnancy and breastfeeding can stretch the skin of the abdomen and the breasts causing laxity of skin. Sometimes the abdominal muscle also suffers from ‘separation’. Breastfeeding can also result in a ‘deflated’ appearance of the breasts. Some mothers may experience an enlargement and saggy appearance of the breast tissue after child rearing, with the nipple placed significantly lower and pointing downwards. Some women may also wish to add liposuction to their thighs or ‘love handles’ as part of their Mummy Makeover. Other mothers may also wish […]

The ‘Zoom’ Factor Now of course, for many of millions of remote workers, there is also the ‘Zoom factor’. Those of us who are working from home are increasingly seeing ourselves reflected back on our Zoom cameras – and for many of us, we’re not 100 percent happy with what we see. Dr Rubinstein said that for his practice, it is eyelid surgery, nose surgery and facelifts that were the most popular queries. “Patients aren’t spending money on holidays or going out – and if they are now working […]
