Breast augmentation can significantly improve the contours of a woman’s body, as well as boost her self-confidence, which may in turn contribute to a healthier self-esteem. With that being said, the decision to undergo breast augmentation is not something that should be taken lightly. We can revitalize and rejuvenate the contours of our Bergen County plastic surgerypatients, but we cannot make them different people. As with any cosmetic treatment, you should always have realistic expectations. We provide customized care that is tailored to each individual patient. By doing so, we ensure optimal results while minimizing the risk for future complications that may result in the need for breast implant revision surgery.
Breast Implant Revision Candidates
You are a good candidate for breast implant revision if you are in good health and are dissatisfied with the results of your breast augmentation surgery. Even with the best surgical techniques, breast implant revision may be required for a number of reasons, including weight gain and weight loss, size of the implants, and rupture of the breast implant. In the treatment of capsular contracture or double-bubble deformities, breast implant revision surgery may be required. If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or feel of your breast implants for any reason, you may benefit from breast implant revision. Our esteemed Bergen County breast augmentation surgeon, Tzvi Small, can help patients achieve shapely feminine contours.
Breast Implant Revision Candidates: Physical Changes
The natural breast tissue is affected by weight gain, weight loss, and age. One of the most common reasons for weight gain in women is pregnancy. After the birth of the child, weight loss occurs, which also affects the breast tissue. In addition, breastfeeding can significantly affect the breast tissue. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, there is often an increase in breast tissue. Once a woman is no longer pregnant or breastfeeding, there may be a decrease in breast tissue. This can change the look and feel of the breasts, which may lead some women to feel dissatisfied with the look and feel of their breast implants. One of the most common issues that affect women as they age is sagging breasts. Some women are under the misconception that breast implants prevent breasts from sagging, but this is not true. Sagging breasts may require breast lift surgery along with breast implant revision surgery. While physical changes are natural, they do not have to keep you from having the contours you desire.
Breast Implant Revision Candidates: Implant Size
The most common reason for breast implant revision surgery is implant size. If you feel that your breast implants are too small or too large for your body frame, you are a good candidate for breast implant revision. The majority of our Bergen County breast implant revision patients desire larger breast implants. During your examination, we can help you determine the size of breast implants that will best suit your individual contours.
Breast Implant Revision Candidates: Rupture
Rupture of breast implants can occur from normal, everyday wear and tear of implants. Other causes include implants that are overfilled or under-filled, defective implants, or an excessive wrinkling and creasing of the implant that may cause premature wear. It is crucial to undergo breast implant revision surgery immediately after an implant has ruptured. If a ruptured breast implant is left in the body for too long, scar tissue surrounding the deflated implant can make implant revision surgery more difficult.
