Many women come to AesthetiCare Cosmetic Surgery Institute for breast revision surgery when they are dissatisfied with their results from another surgeon. Very often, though, breast revision surgery is needed for other reasons, such as complications from their first breast surgery or dissatisfaction with their breast appearance over time. Below are just a few of the top reasons women consider breast revision surgery with Dr. Moser.
1. Dissatisfied With Size
Dissatisfaction with implant size is one of the most common reasons women choose revision surgery. Most often, the woman wishes she had chosen larger implants. Women usually realize this about six months after surgery when the implants have settled into their final place, and all swelling has subsided. By creating larger implant pockets to accommodate the larger implants, Dr. Moser easily solves this problem.
2. A Change in Preference Over Time
Some women may not be happy with the way their implants look or feel several years after their breast augmentation when their body has changed, or their preferences have changed. A woman may have chosen very large, round implants that appear too youthful in older age, or she may want the latest type of implant device that is more form stable or natural. With Dr. Moser’s guidance, you will be able to make the choices that will determine the outcome that achieves your goals.
One in 10 women will undergo breast revision surgery for one reason or another in their lifetime. Usually, this is within the first 10 years. Many women think that they must have their implants replaced when it has been more than 10 years since their surgery, but revision is only needed if there is a complication or if the woman is dissatisfied with her breasts.
4. Capsular Contracture and Other Complications
Of the complications that can result from breast augmentation, capsular contracture is the most common. It occurs when the scar tissue that forms naturally around the implant hardens and squeezes the implant. This often causes pain and visible disfigurement of the affected breast. Other complications, such as implant rupture, breast implant malposition, implant rippling, and infection, can all be corrected with breast revision surgery. In his 30 years of experience, Dr. Moser has resolved countless complications with breast augmentation to deliver the results his patients truly want.
