What Are Your Personal Aesthetic Goals?

There are many reasons why you may need a revision procedure. Some of the most common include:

  • Dissatisfaction with your current breast appearance: This can be due to a poor cosmetic outcome from your initial breast augmentation or to changes in your breast appearance over time that are related to factors such as pregnancy, aging, or fluctuations in weight.
  • Interference with physical activity: Some women find that their breast implants make it harder to participate in their favorite athletic activities. Changing to a more moderately sized implant can often facilitate an active lifestyle.
  • Changes in style over time: Body image trends are continually evolving. A breast appearance that was considered attractive a decade ago may no longer be in style. A revision procedure can help ensure your breast appearance reflects current beauty trends.
  • Desire to upgrade from saline to silicone breast implants: Breast implant technology is continually evolving, and today’s silicone implants are more natural-looking than ever before. Many women who initially chose saline implants may want to replace them with silicone implants to achieve a more natural look and feel.
  • Complications from a prior breast augmentation: Breast implant revision can be performed to address complications such as capsular contracture, rippling, implant rupture, or necrosis of the tissue around the breast implant.
  • Development of breast implant illness: While rare, some women need to have their implants removed due to an adverse reaction associated with a breast implant in the body.

What If a Breast Implant Ruptures?

Modern implant shells are very durable, and ruptures are rare. However, they do occur on occasion, and you will need to undergo a revision procedure to resolve the problem.

When saline implants rupture, the sterile saline solution is safely absorbed by your body. This results in a breast that appears deflated, which is immediately noticeable. It is necessary to replace the implant to restore a natural-looking, symmetrical breast appearance.

Silicone breast implants are filled with a form-stable, cohesive material that holds its shape in the event of a rupture, making it harder to detect the issue. An MRI or ultrasound may be used to ensure the implants remain intact. While the silicone gel in these implants should not pose any danger, you must replace the implant by undergoing breast revision surgery. In these cases, replacing both implants may be the best approach, depending on how long you have had the implants.

Removing Breast Implants in Boca Raton

Whether you have suffered some back pain due to larger breast size, are concerned about breast implant illness, or have changed your aesthetic vision and now prefer your original breast size, our surgeons can perform a breast implant removal procedure.

Your breast revision in West Palm Beach will be performed under general anesthesia and will take between one to three hours, depending on your case. Often, we recommend a breast lift in association with the implant removal procedure to restore a perkier, more youthful appearance. Fat grafting can also be performed to add subtle volume to the upper portion of the breast.

Recovery After Breast Implant Revision

When replacing an implant, the revision recovery process is similar to what you experienced in your initial breast augmentation procedure. When your implants are being removed, the recovery is often much more comfortable than what you experienced during the initial breast augmentation. It is crucial to understand that the recovery process will vary based on the extent of your revision and your unique healing ability.

Specific instructions will be given depending upon the type of breast revision performed
