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.

Dr Rodney Cooter has a special interest in breast aesthetic surgery and is well equipped to help you achieve your goals.

At Waverley House, your breast augmentation will be automatically registered with the Australian Breast Device Registry (ABDR). Dr Cooter’s patients who receive a breast device are now automatically included in the Australian Breast Device Registry (unless they opt out) with the overall aim to improve patient outcomes with the assistance of a long-term database. Dr Cooter was one of the founders of the ABDR.
