Women's,Health.,Cropped,Image,Of,Female,Body,,Breast,In,WhiteIf you’ve had breast implant surgery and aren’t happy with your results or how your results have changed over time, you may be a candidate for a breast implant revision. Here, we’ll take a look at what you need to know to decide if a breast implant revision could be the right fit for your needs.

What is Breast Implant Revision Surgery?

Breast implant revision surgery replaces old implants with new implants. Often, patients want to change the look of their breasts with their new implants. Thankfully, breast implant revision surgery is a safe and reliable way to change the appearance of the breasts.

Why Might a Patient Be Interested in Breast Implant Revision Surgery?

There are many reasons why patients consider breast implant revision surgery. Some patients simply want to change the size or the shape of their breasts and, therefore, need new implants. Others may be concerned about the durability of their implant and may have concerns about implant rupture or migration. Others may be interested in switching from a silicone to a saline implant.

Who Should Consider Breast Implant Revision Surgery?

If you’re unhappy with the current appearance of your breast implants, it’s a good idea to reach out to a surgeon to talk about the possibility of breast implant revision surgery. That being said, not everyone is a good candidate for this type of surgery. People who are good candidates for breast implant revision surgery are in general good health, at a stable weight, are nonsmokers, are interested in changing the size or shape of their breasts, and/or are concerned about the condition of their current implants.

It’s also important that you have realistic expectations for your breast implant revision surgery. Your surgeon will work with you to help you understand the results that you can expect from your surgery.
