Breast augmentation was the most commonly performed procedure last year. Yet, just getting breast implants isn’t a guarantee that your results will turn out exactly the way you hoped. If you’re unhappy with the outcome of your breast enhancement, here’s a look at your options for revision surgery.
Bigger (or Smaller) Is Better
One of the most frequently quoted reasons for wanting breast augmentation revision surgery is breast implants that look too large or too small after recovery. Some women are hesitant to go large at first, because they’re worried the results will look too obvious. Then, after living with their new look, they decide that bigger would be better for them. Alternatively, some women find larger implants don’t suit them after all, and decide they’d do better with smaller implants instead. Either change is possible through a breast augmentation revision.
Less than Aesthetic
Some women may feel happy with the size of their implants, yet not thrilled about certain aesthetic qualities following their surgery. This may be asymmetry between the breasts, visible implant edges or rippling, or implants that sit too high or too low. Breast augmentation revision can help resolve these issues so you feel confident about your figure again.
Handling Capsular Contracture
Although occurring in less than 10 percent of augmentations, capsular contracture is the most common complication associated with getting implants. This scar tissue forms around the implant and can become rigid and painful. Breast augmentation revision can remove the scarring for a soft, natural look.
You always have options, even after surgery. And rest assured that in many cases, breast revision surgery is covered by your health insurance. Come in for a consultation to see how revision surgery can give you the look you deserve.
