Are You a Candidate for Breast Augmentation Revision?

The choice to revise your results after breast augmentation is a personal one and it may be made for health, lifestyle, or cosmetic purposes. The most common reasons include:

  • Aesthetic concerns: Dr. Rockmore treats women who had breast augmentation elsewhere and are unsatisfied with the results of their surgery. Common aesthetic problems include breast implants that are too wide, too close together, or implants that have “bottomed out.” These can be corrected by making repairs to the implant pocket and repositioning the implants.
  • Complications: Breast implants change over time, sometimes rupturing, breaking down, or causing the formation of excess scar tissue. Revision surgery can correct many of the rare complications that may occur after breast augmentation.
  • Physical or lifestyle changes: In the years following your breast augmentation, it’s likely you’ll experience changes to your body, such as skin stretching, weight gain or loss, or changes to your exercise habits. You may eventually opt to revise or remove your implants to better suit your desired look and feel.

Because some degree of skin stretching occurs for many women, Dr. Rockmore frequently combines breast augmentation revision with a breast lift.

Types of Breast Augmentation Revision

You and Dr. Rockmore will plan a custom surgery together to achieve the results you’re looking for.

Breast Implant Removal (Explant)

Breast implant removal, or explant surgery, is ideal for women who have had breast augmentation in the past and no longer want implants. In the procedure, Dr. Rockmore fully removes your breast implants while maintaining an attractive breast shape. This involves a decrease in volume, causing your breasts to return to roughly their original size.

Breast Implant Exchange

If you want to maintain your volume but are looking to adjust the size, shape, or material of your implants, you’ll likely benefit from a breast implant exchange. Dr. Rockmore removes your existing implants and replaces them with new models that better fit your goals. This is also a popular option for women who have experienced complications such as rupture but want to maintain their fuller shape.

Breast Implant Revision

Breast implant revision surgery is intended for women who have had breast augmentation in the past and are now concerned about the position of placement of their implants. This procedure addresses those concerns by reshaping the breasts, repositioning the implants, and adjusting the surrounding tissue to create a more youthful and attractive shape.

“I am extremely happy with the results of my breast augmentation and nipple repair with Dr. Rockmore. He listened to exactly what I wanted and what I expected from the procedures, and I have to say they turned out just perfect for me. I am extremely pleased with my experience all around.”
