Breast Implant Revision Undo a previously poor breast surgery

Who is a good candidate for breast implant revision?

Women who have undergone breast augmentation in the past may find that their implants shift, deflate or shrink over time, or they may simply no longer prefer their current implants and wish to remove or replace them. A Beverly Hills breast implant revision with Dr. Lahijani can restore plumpness, symmetry and volume to the breasts, correcting a variety of flaws and irregularities responsible for both physical discomfort and social inhibition. In general, it is suggested that breast implants be reviewed for revision every 10 years.

Common reasons for breast revision include...

  • Breast implant rippling - This can occur with saline implants when the areas next to or underneath the breast begin to wrinkle.
  • Breast implant rupture - Rupture can occur in both silicone and saline breast implants. With silicone, the implant shell may crack, although this may only be visible through an MRI test. When saline implants rupture, the breast becomes deflated, compromising the appearance of the chest.
  • Implant shifting - Also known as bottoming out, implants can sometimes shift from their original positions due to aging, injury or capsular contracture.
  • Implant size - After undergoing breast augmentation, some women may find that they are unhappy with the size of their new breasts and may wish to exchange their implants for ones that better complement their frame.
  • Implant removal - It is not uncommon for women who have had breast implants to decide at a later date they no longer want them. In this case, the implants are removed and the breasts are tightened and reshaped to their pre-surgical appearance.
  • Error in original implant surgery - Unfortunately, not all surgeons are up to par, and some implant procedures may result in less than optimal results. Flaws due to surgical error can be corrected with breast revision surgery for a much improved outcome.

What can I expect from breast implant revision?

Implant revision surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about the same amount of time as breast augmentation surgery. In some cases, your surgeon may need to remove scar tissue surrounding the implant, or perform a breast lift (mastoplexy) to help pocket the new implants properly. If additional support is necessary in the chest area, the doctor may employ a bio mesh silk scaffolding device called a strattice, which can also help guard against capsular contracture.

What will my recovery be like?

Recovery from your Los Angeles breast implant surgery will vary widely depending on the techniques used for correction, and on the extent of the changes required. On average, most clients find they can return to work within 10-14 days. Strenuous exercise such as weight lifting is discouraged for at least 4-6 weeks. Although scarring is kept to a minimum, it make take up to six months for revision scars to significantly fade.
