One of the issues related to aesthetic breast surgery and breast reconstruction surgery is that things can change over time.
Issues with implants over time
Implants do have a lifespan and problems can occur such as malposition, implant rupture, capsular contracture, rippling, asymmetry and more. In addition to this, your body continues to age over a relatively ageless implant. This means that the original relationship that your skin and tissues had with the implant may evolve over time resulting in an unacceptable appearance or asymmetry.
Implant revisional surgery options
The need for revisional surgery presents in many ways and correction may involve any combination of strategies either as a single stage or multi-stage procedure. Breast implant removal and replacement, scar revisons, breast lifting, fat grafting or lipotransfer are just some of the strategies that could be used.
