Revision Breast Augmentation
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.
