Breast Implant Revision
Breast implants can give your body the desirable curves, but they are not designed to last forever. Most individuals who have breast augmentation with implants in their 20s or 30s will need a breast implant revision at some point in their life. Others may not be happy with the appearance or feel of their breast augmentation and may want an alteration. Dr. Aviva Preminger is a board certified plastic surgeon and breast implant specialist who offers exceptional breast implant revision procedures in NYC.
There are two main types of breast implants, saline and silicone, and hybrid options like Ideal implants. The implants used in the industry now are very safe and both main types can last 10 to 20 years or longer. There are individuals who have had their implants for 25+ years. There is not an expiration date on breast implants, but the chance of rupture or other issues can increase over time.
Reasons for a Breast Implant Revision
There are many different reasons patients seek a revision procedure for their breast implants. Some of the most common reasons include:
- Breast implant rupture
- Rippling of the implant
- Implant shifted or sagging
- Patient desires smaller or larger breasts
- Capsular contracture
Regardless of the reason for a breast implant revision, it is important to have an experienced plastic surgeon to perform your surgery. A revision procedure can be more complex than the original surgery. The old implants need to be removed, and the breast tissue may need to be reformed to achieve the desired results. Some patients will need a breast lift with their new implants or other modifications during their procedure. Dr. Preminger has the experience and expertise to complete intricate breast surgery correction to accomplish the desired effect for the patient.
If you have complications with your breast implants or you are not happy with their appearance, a breast revision procedure may be the best option.
