Even with proper planning and execution of breast implant surgery, changes can and do occur that lead to the consideration of undergoing breast implant revision surgery. These changes can be implant-related, or from natural changes in the breast tissue, such as after childbirth and breast-feeding. The more common reasons for seeking revision breast surgery are implant deflation, a desire to change implant (size or type), capsular contracture, implant malposition, double-bubble deformity, and combination issues.

In some cases, the patient was not a good candidate for breast augmentation at the time of her first implant surgery and should have undergone a breast lift alone or in partnership with an implant. A common example of this is a patient who has breast laxity or sagginess after having had children or losing weight. At Carlin Plastic Surgery, every patient is evaluated and treated as individual – no two reasons for breast revision are the same, and Dr. Carlin’s goal is to help the patient achieve their goal by choosing not only the right implant but also the proper surgical procedure.

Am I a good candidate for
breast revision surgery?

You may be a candidate for breast revision surgery if you have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Loss of saline implant volume – implant deflation
  • X-ray (MRI) suggesting a silicone implant with a shell leak
  • If you desire to change implant/breast size
  • Tightening of the scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture)
  • Breast implants that have shifted in position
  • If your breast tissue has changed in shape or volume from skin stretch or weight loss/gain
