Revision Breast Augmentation in Philadelphia
Plastic Surgeon & Medical Spa Serving Bryn Mawr and The Main Line of Philadelphia, PA
Different Implant Size
A different implant size may be desired several years after the initial procedure, after the natural breast volume has been affected by weight changes, pregnancy, breastfeeding or aging. This may be combined with a breast lift or a mastopexy if the nipple position has changed or descended with time and the effects of gravity. Should you desire a change in your implants size, a consultation with Dr. Claytor at our Main Line office will help you select the new size you are considering.
Saline breast implants that begin to leak are often noticeable, as the leaking breast will gradually decrease in size. Patients with silicone implant leaks may notice small changes in the shape of the breast or even development of capsular contractures. An evaluation with a Board Certified plastic surgeon is a good first step if you have any questions. A mammogram or MRI may be recommended to evaluate the status of your implants.
Newly released to the market are shaped implants which are also known as the “gummy gear” type implants. These form stable implants are not for every type of patient. A consultation and examination with Dr. Claytor at our convenient Bryn Mawr office will help you determine if your body type is a good fit for a shaped implant.
Revision augmentation may be indicated. If you are interested in considering revision surgery, a consultation with Dr. Claytor will help you to better understand the issues which you are considering.

a great experience in every way
Dr. Claytor was a very reassuring understanding and pleasurable Dr for a very personal experience. He explains everything in detail about what he is going to do and listens to your needs and expectations. I had implants removed that were inserted approximately 20 years ago. Overtime they were very uncomfortable and became very hard which was encapsul and and very unnatural looking. The original implants were placed in front of the muscle. Dr Claytor place the new implants behind my muscle which has left them soft movable and completely comfortable. And in hindsight I wished I had done this many years sooner. I can’t explain how happy I am with this procedure the doctor and all of the people involved in my care. I would highly recommend Dr Claytor and his staff for anything you’re interested in having done to make you feel better about your appearance.
