Breast augmentation surgery can be a life-changing procedure that restores youth and confidence. Yet, inexperienced surgeons or unfortunate healing circumstances can cause breast augmentation to turn out less successful than expected.

Thankfully, patients who seek Dr. Mendieta’s professional experience and patient-oriented care can receive the breast revision necessary to fully enjoy the beauty of their breasts, whether their breasts remain augmented or return to their natural form. Here are some of the reasons why a breast implant revision may be right for you.

1. Cosmetic Results

Some women may become dissatisfied with the cosmetic result of their implants either initially or years down the line. This is usually due to an unnatural shape or feel. Many techniques are available to fix these issues, such as changing the implant placement or the characteristics of the implant itself. Choosing an experienced surgeon can more effectively ensure that your procedure will be tailored to your exact needs.

Allowing women to increase or decrease their implants’ size is an important advantage offered by breast revision surgery. Some women do not know the breast size they want when initially choosing their implants. A woman’s ideals of beauty and what she finds comfortable can also shift over time once she has lived with her breast implants for several years.

Breast revision gives women the chance to change their implants for larger or smaller options.

2. Bodily Changes

Cosmetic procedures have made significant advancements in slowing the progression of aging and correcting the changes in our bodies after pregnancy. However, as the body goes through its own transformation, so does the breasts. The breasts grow and shrink with each of these changes, prompting patients to seek breast revision to correct these concerns and restore their breasts to how they were after their initial breast augmentation. Breast revision surgery is ideal for patients who are experiencing unfavorable positioning, symmetry, and functionality of their breast implants.

3. Other Concerns

For some patients, breast implant revisions do not always include replacing the implant with a new one. Some women wish to restore their authentic appearance, while others are more concerned with discomfort or health concerns breast implants may bring. By removing the breast implants during revision, women can find satisfaction with their natural breasts. During this revision option, it is sometimes recommended that patients combine their implant removal with breast lift surgery. A breast lift after breast implant removal can restore perkiness to breasts that have been stretched by implants.
