Breast augmentation is an incredibly common procedure, which unfortunately means that women find themselves unhappy with the results of their surgery with a somewhat surprising amount of frequency. There might be any number of reasons that you’re not happy with the results of a prior breast augmentation, which is why we offer breast implant revision in Scottsdale at AdmireMD® Plastic Surgery + Skin Clinic.
Changing the Size of Your Implants
One of the most common reasons women seek out breast implant revision surgery in Scottsdale or Phoenix is to simply change the size of their implant. We advise that you wait up to a full year after you’ve had your initial surgery, before undergoing a revision. This gives your body the chance to heal, allowing swelling to subside and the implants to settle, so you can see your results in their final form. An obvious exception might be in a case where there is noted asymmetry, or in the case of a leakage or rupture.
During revision surgery, Anthony A. Admire is often able to utilize the incisions made during the initial surgery, to remove and/or replace the implants with either larger or smaller ones. If larger implants are desired, the pockets in the breasts that hold the implants will be made larger. If smaller implants are the goal, these same pockets will be made smaller using sutures, and a mastopexy (breast lift) may also be performed.
