Breast implant revision or replacement is a surgical procedure that exchanges your existing breast implants with new ones. Sometimes the goal is to correct any problems from your earlier breast augmentation surgery or to update the implant material.
Breasts can change shape over time and many women decide to replace or exchange their implants. If you have had significant weight loss or pregnancy since you had your original breast augmentation, you may have experienced a change in your breasts and may need a revision.
As the first step in any breast implant revision Chelmsford plastic surgeon Dr. Dave Lee will want to understand your reasons for the surgery and any concerns you may have about your original implants or the replacements. A complete medical history will be taken. The doctor will examine your breasts and determine the quality of your breast tissue and your skin.
Breast implant revision is not a routine surgery and must be customized to your particular needs. Your experience will depend on your reasons for the surgery. For example, if you simply want to increase or decrease the size of your breasts, it is likely that Dr. Lee will be able to use the same incision used for the original augmentation. If you desire correction of capsular contracture or adjustments to the position of the implants, you may require an incision along your fold
A breast lift may be done at the same time as well. If you have rippling of the implant or if the implant is poorly positioned, the surgery may be a bit more involved. Fat grafting to the breast is another way to improve your breast appearance. This involves harvesting fat from areas like your abdomen or thighs in order to inject into the breast tissues overlying the implants. General anesthesia is usually used to keep you comfortable. The length of the procedure depends on what is required to deliver the results you and Dr. Lee have discussed.
Capsular contracture is a hardening and contracting of the scar tissue surrounding the implant. When any kind of implant surgery is done, a capsule of scar tissue will form around the implant as a normal part of the healing process.
That capsule helps to keep the implant in place. However, some patients experience breast pain and misshapen breasts because of the tightening of the scar tissue. Surgical intervention may be needed to correct this problem. Dave Lee, MD, is a skilled and extensively trained Chelmsford plastic surgeon who can assess your situation and your goals and then determine the need for revision and the best course of treatment.
