Breast implants can create fuller, more voluptuous breasts, but not every plastic surgeon has the same expertise in breast augmentation. The right techniques and methods are required to achieve ideal results from breast implant surgery. If you are unhappy with your breast augmentation results or you have had complications after your surgery, contact us at HMS Plastic Surgery. Dr. Harry Salinas can perform breast implant revision surgery at our surgical center in Miami, FL.
Breast Surgery Correction
There are a few issues that can occur with breast implant augmentation procedures. Depending on the expertise and experience of the plastic surgeon, the results may not look symmetrical or natural. The placement and position of the implant, the type of implant and other factors can impact the appearance. Some reasons patients seek a breast implant revision include:
- Dropped or sagging implants
- Rippling or uneven breast tissue
- Symmastia – merged implants
- Up or downsizing
During a breast implant correction, patients can switch to a different type, size or shape of implant. Some patients may decide to have the implants removed completely, which may require a lift procedure to reshape the natural breast tissue.
Replacing Breast Implants
Breast implants are not meant to be lifetime devices, which means they may need to be replaced at some point in your life. While some women have implants for decades, it is likely that new implants will be needed in 10-15 years after the initial surgery. This is a common reason for breast implant revision surgery, which is an opportunity to change shapes or sizes if desired.
If you are unhappy with your breast implants or need a breast surgery correction for any reason, contact our team at HMS Plastic Surgery. We can schedule a breast implant revision consultation with Dr. Harry Salinas at our plastic surgery center in Miami, FL.
