[BK Plastic Surgery] Breast Implant Revision

BK Plastic Surgery
Breast Implant Revision

The number of revisional breast surgery is on the rise, as the number of people going under a knife for breast surgery is gradually increasing. The reasons for revisional breast surgery can be classified into : capsular contracture, dissatisfied with size and shape. 
I will now share important bits on reasons for revisional breast surgery. 

Dissatisfied with breast size
When previous implant is not suitable for current height or body type, or desirable size of breast has been changed with trend, breast implant revision is often considered.

-Plan for revision
Replace previous implant with another implant in a desirable size. There needs to be enough time space between initial operation and revision.

Dissatisfied with breast shape
When implants are not properly inserted, it causes upper part of the breasts to be bulging, yet lower part to be flatten. Also  asymmetry of breasts and unnatural appearance of breasts after initial surgery often require revision

-Plan for revision
Detach or remove previous implants from initial insertion, then insert them into proper location.

Implants that are leaking
Although leakage of implant materials is very rare, individuals with such condition must consider revision.

-Plan for revision
Remove previous silicone gel/saline bag and insert new implants to proper location

Capsular contracture

Capsular contracture occurs when scar tissue forms around the implant, resulting in painful breast stiffness. Capsular contracture can be considered as normal reaction, but for severe condition, possible bleeding and infection can result.

-Plan for revision

Remove previous implants with contracted tissue using an incision on areola or underside fold of breast.
