Breast augmentation mammoplasty revision, known as breast implant corrective surgery, is an operation for patients who have had breast augmentation mammoplasties in the past but may not be satisfied with their implants or worried about their health. The procedure seeks to fix potential issues from their initial mammoplasty surgery and, if necessary, remove and replace the implants. Every patient’s operation is unique since it is based on personal objectives and tailored to their demands. Breast fat grafting or a breast lift mammoplasty may be advised as an additional procedure for revision, depending on the extent of concerns and corrections a patient wishes to make.
A woman may have breast implant revision surgery for several significant reasons. Weight loss, pregnancy, and natural ageing can all impact the implants’ position, shape, and size, resulting in deflation and asymmetry. Some patients may also decide that their implants’ precise size and shape no longer satisfy their personal aesthetic goals.
Correction may sometimes be necessary due to more significant issues such as implant rupture, migration, or capsular contracture. Trauma or a breach in the integrity of the implant shell can cause implant rupture, which results in implant leakage. Capsular contracture is the hardening of the breasts caused by tightening scar tissue that grows around the breast implant.
