Breast Implant Revision Surgery on Cape Cod
Receiving breast implants can significantly improve self-confidence, helping to create an hourglass figure and create more proportionate breasts, however, breast implants can lose their shape or volume which means many women opt for breast implant revisions. Through this service, women can replace or update the implant. While the shape and size are of concern, the #1 reason to get breast revision surgery is unhappiness with previous results.
Reasons To Consider Breast Implant Revision Surgery
As mentioned above, the most common reason women get breast implant revision surgery is to address unhappiness with their previous results. However, there are a few other reasons women consider breast implant revision surgery:
- Capsular contracture causing discomfort (when scar tissue forms a tight or constricting capsule around a breast implant)
- The possibility of the implant rupturing or migrating, oftentimes seen at the 10-15 year mark
- Seeking a different implant material or style
- Upgrading or downgrading the size of the implant
