As we age, it is common to become increasingly unsatisfied with our appearance. For women, however, the changes brought on by aging can adversely affect the look of the breast. When this happens, women may begin to feel insecure and lack the confidence they once had when they were younger.
Many often yearn to have a better figure and to look more youthful. That is why more and more women are choosing to undergo cosmetic procedures to retain their youthful good looks and improve their appearance overall.
One of the most common cosmetic procedures conducted on women is a breast augmentation. This procedure helps improve the size and shape of the breasts to achieve a better figure. It involves using saline or silicone implants to increase the size of the breasts and lifting the skin to make them firmer and perkier.
However, like all surgeries, there are several things that you must know before undergoing the procedure. If you’re interested in making improvements to your breasts, understanding the details of a breast augmentation will help prepare you for the procedure.
What Does Revision Breast Augmentation Surgery Involve?
Since this procedure involves the precise revision of the breasts, your doctor will make sure that a systemic approach is used to address your needs. Breast augmentation revision surgery may include the exchange of implants, correct displacement, rippling, or rupturing of the implants, or correct anatomical complications such as tissue hardening.
Before the procedure is conducted, your doctor will study your anatomy and cosmetic concerns. He will also talk to you about your expectations and the results you can expect from the procedure.
He will then determine the best technique that will help address your concerns and help you achieve the results you’re looking for. The surgery will involve the use of general anesthesia and will be conducted with extreme caution and attention to detail.
Your surgeon will conduct the procedure using the best techniques available and he will make sure that all of your issues are addressed. The incisions made during the surgery will be closed and strategically hidden.
The duration of the surgery depends on your needs and goals. The recovery time is much shorter compared to an initial augmentation surgery.
What Issues Can you Address with Revision Breast Augmentation?
Since breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures conducted around the globe, revision augmentation is also gaining popularity. There are several reasons why women choose to undergo revision breast augmentation. Some of them are:
Shape of the Breasts: In some cases, the results of the augmentation surgery can be less than expected. The surgery can result in breasts that can look too rigid or droopy. It may even cause the breasts to vary in size.
Asymmetry: Over time, your breasts may experience changes in shape and size, especially after pregnancy or extreme weight loss. This can happen even after you’ve undergone augmentation previously.
Implant Issues: Your implants can change shape or form over time. They can also become rippled, wrinkled, or ruptured. In some cases, they can even become displaced.
Capsular Contracture: This is the condition where the scar tissue around the implants become hard and painful, needing surgical remedy.
These are the most common reasons why women choose to undergo revision breast augmentation. If you’re also considering this procedure, consult your cosmetic surgeon for more details.
