6 Signs Why You Need A Breast Implant Revision

Some women might feel insecure and lose their confidence and self-esteem due to the appearance of their breasts. Breast augmentation is an aesthetic surgery that provides numerous mental and physical health benefits by enhancing or reshaping your breasts’ shape and size with silicone implants, saline implants, or in some cases, fat transfer.

Larger breasts are an aspiration for many, and augmentation surgery can provide the opportunity to achieve this goal. While it offers long-lasting aesthetic results, sometimes there are times you need breast revision surgery to repair the initial surgery or any complications it caused.

As long as you’re happy with the size, shape, and location of your implants, there is no reason to remove them. Breast implants only need to be removed if you experience the following physical complications.

1. You may Experience Capsular Contracture

After breast augmentation, the formation of scar tissue known as the “capsule” is a normal part of the healing process and often helps keep the implant in the breast pocket. Capsular contracture occurs when the scar tissue surrounding the breast implant contracts and causes the breast to become hard and tight.

This can occur any time after surgery or years later. If you are experiencing discomfort, pain, or a noticeable change such as a firm or round shape in your breast, it may be a sign of capsular contracture. Revision surgery can remove the scar tissue and restore your breast appearance.

2. Rupture or Leakage

While the implants are made from durable materials, they can still rupture or deflate. The most common reasons for leakage is due to the weakening of the implant shell, aging, or injury. Once an implant has ruptured or leaked, it is essential to undergo breast implant revision. Revision surgery will replace the damaged implant and restore your breast size and shape. If a ruptured breast implant is left in the body for too long, you may feel breast pain, lumps, hardening, or changes in size or shape in the breast.

3. Unsatisfactory Results

Sometimes, women may simply be unhappy with the outcome of their breast augmentation surgery. Whether it’s due to size, shape, or symmetry, breast implant revision surgery can help address these concerns and provide a more satisfying result. It’s important to discuss your goals and expectations with your surgeon before undergoing revision surgery to ensure you get the outcome you desire.

4. You want To Correct Skin Rippling

Sometimes implants can create tiny folds and wrinkles along the surface of the breast that is visible on the skin, often around the side, bottom, or near cleavage. Implant rippling is most common with saline implants, but silicone-gel implants can also have this problem. Unfortunately, no amount of massaging, exercising or skin products can get rid of rippling. It can only be correct with breast revision surgery.

5. Pregnancy or Weight Loss

Pregnancy and significant weight loss can have a great impact on the appearance of a woman’s breasts. These changes involve a loss of volume, sagging, and altered shape. Breast augmentation revision surgery can help to restore volume, improve the shape, and enhance breast size, providing women with a more aesthetically pleasing appearance and increased self-confidence.

If you are considering this procedure, it is important to work closely with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine the best course of action for your needs and goals.

6. Implant Malposition or Migration

Another common reason why women seek breast revision is that the implants shift in their position, leading to implant malposition. When the implant is not positioned properly within the breast pocket it gives a distorted or unnatural shape, and appearance. Breast augmentation revision surgery can be performed to adjust the implant in the proper position and restore a more natural pleasing appearance. During this procedure, the surgeon will reposition the implants, or repair the breast pocket,


If you feel any discomfort or notice a change in the breast appearance, breast augmentation revision surgery is a great way to improve the appearance of your breasts. From correcting asymmetry and improving the shape of your breasts to replacing implants to enhance your self-confidence, a breast augmentation revision can help you achieve your desired results.
