Everything You Need to Know About Breast Augmentation Revision

 

Did things go wrong with your first breast augmentation? Maybe you chose the wrong surgeon or maybe the implants you selected weren’t a good fit. Whatever the problem, we’re here to help you turn your breast augmentation disaster into a success. If things didn’t go right the first time around, you need a surgeon you can trust. Come to Hunstad Kortesis Bharti Plastic Surgery + MedSpa.

What Went Wrong?

Most of the time, breast augmentation goes very well. One study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found that 98% of breast augmentation patients felt their results met or exceeded expectations. Odds are, you’re going to love your results the very first time. Unfortunately, problems can and do arise. Some potential reasons for a breast augmentation revision surgery include:

  • Capsular Contracture– Capsular contracture occurs when scar tissue develops in the implant capsule and constricts the breast implant. This can cause hardness, distortion, and in extreme cases pain. The implant needs to be replaced and scar tissue needs to removed.
  • Wrong Type of Implant– If you selected saline implants, but aren’t getting your desired results, we can swap these implants out for silicone ones. We have found that patients are generally very satisfied after making the switch. We can also change implant size and shape as necessary.
  • Change in Implant Placement– If your results are unnatural looking or undesirable after a subglandular placement (on top of the chest muscle) we can convert your implant placement to a submuscular placement for a more natural look.
  • Breast Asymmetry– We can correct mismatched breasts due to size discrepancies or placement issues.
