Breast Revision Miami - Reasons for Breast Revision Surgery
Breast revision surgery is required when a previous breast augmentation procedure has led to unsatisfactory results. Miami patients who are unhappy with their post-surgery appearance, or who are experiencing complications with their implants can contact Coral Gables Cosmetic Center for more information about their options. Our Miami plastic surgeons consult with patients, and work together to correct the aesthetic and medical complications they might be experiencing from a previous procedure that was performed elsewhere. The result is a look that is natural, anatomically correct, and symmetrical.
Reasons for Breast Revision Surgery
One of the most common reasons women seek to have breast revision surgery, this can occur anytime after surgery. Breast implants that feel hard and appear distorted result from a patient's body forming a capsule that lines the implant. In cases where the capsule tightens, it affects the placement and appearance of the implant.
Implants placed in the improper position during a previous surgery can be corrected by a Coral Gables physician.
Breast implants can rupture for various reasons, including trauma to the breast, injury from surgical instruments, normal wear and tear, or simply from wearing out over time. Ruptures can occur at any time after surgery, however are generally more likely the longer an implant has been in use. Ruptured implants should be replaced as soon as possible. The procedure is similar to a breast augmentation.
Changing the Size of Breast Implants
Women who would like to increase or decrease the size of their current breast implants can do so at Coral Gables in Miami. Our board-certified surgeons consult with patients to discuss their body type and anatomical dimensions to determine the size of implant that will meet their needs.
