Is breast implant revision for me?
Any one of the following feelings or conditions may indicate that you are a good candidate for this procedure:
Dissatisfaction – a patient may simply wish to remove her implants because they no longer suit her lifestyle
Desire for a Size Change – a patient may wish to exchange her implants for smaller or larger implants; or to switch from saline to a silicone implants, or vice versa
Capsular Contracture – sensitivity, infection, and bleeding that exacerbate internal scarring are among the known causes of capsular contracture, which presents as overly firm and spherical breasts that look unnatural
Implant Malposition – poor placement of one or both implants can result in an unnatural appearance (too high, too close, too far apart, unequally placed)
Rippling – rippling can occur when implants are placed in an area that lacks adequate tissue to accommodate the implant, or when a saline implant is not sufficiently filled prior to implantation
Implant Leakage or Rupture – significant force can cause a breast implant to rupture. This can result in immediate deflation of saline implants, with obvious effects on a woman’s appearance, or slow deflation of silicone implants
