Statistics show that many patients who undergo breast revision surgery each year will return for another surgery to correct problems and make additional changes.
It is estimated that a large percent of breast augmentation patient, as much as 40%, are patients who experienced no complications and want additional volume – larger breasts. There is a large number of Rancho Mirage breast implant revision patients who seek revisions for results that they are not satisfied with.
Breast implant revision Palm Desert addresses patients seeking larger breasts at The Plastic Surgery Institute and provide changes for patients who feel their breasts have healed with excess or visible scar tissue, that their breasts are uneven, and that their breasts have shifted, begun to leak, or ruptured.
Scar tissue is also a concern when it forms close to the skin resulting in shelving, wrinkles, bulging, and capsular contracture. Some patients seek breast revision only a year after surgery once the final results become clear. It is common for patients to look for changes five to ten years after their primary breast surgery. Patients who have undergone pregnancy, weight changes, or the normal effects of aging find that their breast implants no longer look or feel natural. For these and other conditions, they seek to have a breast revision done.
Due to the formation of scar tissue in a breast revision surgery, any subsequent surgery becomes more complicated and should only be performed by experienced surgeons who have a history of performing breast revision surgeries.
With a breast revision surgery, the surgeon needs to see the breasts and implants, and attend to scar tissue, which varies from patient to patient.
There are issues that were created or not addressed by an initial breast surgery. It is important for you to find the right surgeon for your breast revision surgery.
