When seeking breast augmentation, you should partner with a surgeon who can handle unexpected problems occurring months or years after the procedure.

Some of the possible complications or reasons for revision surgery are as follows:

  • Change in preferences
  • Switching implant types
  • Changing implant size
  • Deciding to remove implants

Breast implant removal or exchange is a relatively simple procedure. If you have chosen to replace your breast implants with silicone gel or a larger size, the surgeon will typically approach the implants through the same incisions used during your breast augmentation. Recovery time after this surgery is also relatively short.

Medical or Cosmetic Complications

  • Capsule contracture
  • Poor healing or scarring
  • Breast sagging
  • Nipple malposition
  • Implant rupture
  • Rippling of Implant Shell

Surgery to correct problems such as these will vary. Some procedures are simple and some are complex. The general goal is to create a satisfactory aesthetic and medical outcome for the patient. If you believe you are experiencing a problem with your breast implants, contact Richmond plastic surgeons today.
