Revisionary Breast Surgery
The popularity of breast implants and breast lifts gives hundreds of thousands of patients the chance to achieve their aesthetic goals. However, sometimes, patients realize that the results of their initial procedure do not meet their expectations. For this, there is revisionary breast surgery.
Typically, surgery to revise a previous breast procedure is a chance for patients to go bigger with their breast implants. Often, patients realize that they desire larger breast implants because when the swelling subsides as they heal from surgery, their final cup size is a bit smaller.
Another reason for revisionary breast surgery is to remove complications such as capsular contracture. Capsular contracture presents itself with symptoms like:
- Firmness of one breast (It is very rare to have capsular contracture in both breasts).
- One breast sits higher than the other (Almost always in combination with firmness).
- Mild discomfort.
If you have had breast implants for eight years or more, replacing them or having them removed (which should always include a breast lift) is a very common reason for revisionary breast surgery.
