Breast Augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. While often the procedure lasts a lifetime, breast augmentation revision is quite common. Breast Implant Revision has emerged as a specialty unto itself. While many of the tenants that lead to excellent Breast Augmentation results will also apply to Breast Augmentation Revision, new and specific techniques have evolved for the correction of the common problems that can occur with Breast Implants.
The most frequent reasons for Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery include the desire to change the size of the breast, breast implant deflation, problems with the position of the breast implants and tightening of the scar that normally forms around the breast. The last listed is called capsular contracture.
